Signs Your Driveway Needs Replacement
Are you unable to decide whether your driveway needs replacement? If so, look out for signs on your driveway such as:
Cracks All Over
While small cracks are repairable, long and wide cracks are signs of severe damage.
Presence of Potholes
A pothole can cause problems to your vehicle as going over an indented surface is tough on tires. These holes form due to the expansion and contraction of the soil beneath your driveway.
Drainage issues can cause harm to your driveway as accumulated or running water can weaken the surface.
Due to the UV rays of the sun, the surface oxidises and gradually loses colour.
Commonly Asked Questions
Is it important to include a base before installing a concrete driveway?
A base must be added prior to the concrete to stabilize the soil underneath and prolong the lifespan of your driveway.
How should I maintain my driveway post-installation?
Some ways to take care of your driveway after installation are:
Sealing Your Driveway
Seal your driveway to protect it from spalling and deterioration.
Giving Time for Curing
Do not use your driveway for a minimum of seven days post-installation as the concrete needs to cure and harden before normal use.
Cleaning Up Oil Spots
Oil spots attract dust and dirt leaving a stain on your concrete. Use a de-greaser or scrub to get rid of oil spots.
Is concrete a good option for Edmonton’s weather?
A properly installed concrete driveway holds up well, despite Edmonton’s harsh winters.
