Is your driveway looking a bit tired?
Could it use a little work to make it look better?
Your driveway is one of the first things a person notices when they drive by your home.
They aren’t intended to last forever. It would be great if they would, but they won’t.
The elements are working on your driveway 365 days a year. The sun is working on fading the original deep black color of your asphalt pavement.
Leaves, landscaping and other organic material can collect on and stain concrete.
Moisture and changes in temperature are working on penetrating and expanding any cracks that may exist in it as well. Small animals and insects are tunneling alongside and underneath it. The base foundation may be undergoing changes as well.
Parked cars can drip oil and other fluids.
And don’t forget about your kids. Who knows what they’re doing out there.
A driveway doesn’t require much maintenance, but it does need a little care every once in a while.
If you have an asphalt one, you may not have noticed how much it has faded since it was first constructed. When yours gets freshly sealed, you will be surprised at how deep the color is and how much better it looks.
A freshly sealed surface will also do a much better job at repelling water and preventing cracks from expanding.
Planning a New Driveway
Maybe you want to replace your current driveway with a new one. A driveway contractor can build a really great-looking approach to your home. You will have many different designs and components to choose from, including brick, concrete and stone.
A driveway builder can take a look at your property and give you their advice on either repairing yours or planning a new one.
The first step is to simply make a phone call and talk about it.
