Is your Seattle driveway showing its age?
Driveways aren’t designed to last forever. It would be pretty great if they would last a lifetime — but they won’t.
Mother Nature is working on your driveway every day of the year. The sun is trying to fade the deep black color that your asphalt pavement originally had.
Moisture, changes in temperature, freezing and thawing are at work penetrating and stressing any cracks that may exist in your driveway as well. Insects and small animals are moving and tunneling alongside and underneath it. The base foundation underneath may be slightly shifting and undergoing changes as well.
Driveways do not require much maintenance from a homeowner, but most do need a little tending to every once in a while.
If you have an asphalt driveway, you may not have noticed how much it has faded. When it was first constructed, it was deep black; now it is much lighter. If you get yours freshly sealed, you might be surprised at how deep black it is and how much better it looks.
Sealing your driveway also helps it last longer. A new sealed surface will have no cracks and will do a much better job at repelling water which will keep any new cracks from starting and expanding.
Planning for a Brand New Driveway
Maybe you want to upgrade your current driveway with a more custom one. A Seattle driveway company can construct a brand new approach to your home that will look great from the street.
Your Seattle driveway builder can show you many different designs and components to choose from. You can select from brick, concrete, stone, asphalt, or a combination of building materials.
A Seattle driveway contractor can come over and examine your property and neighborhood. They can give you their advice on either how to repair your current one or how to start building a new one.
It’s easy to get started. Just make a phone call and talk it over.
