Concrete is one of the strongest and most important construction materials used in site structures. The right installation methods and maintenance are crucial to the life of your concrete, and it’s important to protect your investment. Our experts use proper installation practices to ensure that your concrete structure will stay in excellent shape, and there are plenty of things you can do at home to keep your driveway looking its best.
REAPPLY DRIVEWAY SEALER AS NEEDED
It’s important to maintain the quality of the concrete by reapplying sealer as needed. How often should you reseal your driveway? This answer varies depending on each situation, but most experts recommend resealing every two years. If your driveway is regularly exposed to harsh weather conditions, chemicals or high traffic levels, it may need to be resealed more regularly. Pay attention to any changes in your concrete throughout the year. If you aren’t sure if your driveway needs to be resealed, it’s best to speak with an expert in your area.
KEEP IT CLEAN AND REMOVE STAINS
If you wait too long to make a repair or remove stains, it could make the problem worse. It’s important to pay attention to your concrete structure and be proactive about any issues. Try to avoid using harsh chemicals on your driveway, and powerwash any oil stains as soon as possible.
TREAT IT WITH CARE
Although concrete might seem invincible, it still needs to be treated with care. Residential concrete driveways weren’t meant to hold the weight of moving trucks or ultra-heavy vehicles. In order to prevent cracks, we recommend limiting the use of larger vehicles on the area. Potential damage from heavy vehicles won’t be visible right away, but it will impact the wear of the concrete over time.
