It’s an essential part of creating a good first impression.

A well-maintained and attractive driveway completes the overall look of your home or commercial building. It’s an important finishing touch that adds class and enhances the value of your property. While your driveway is going to look pristine after construction, issues can start appearing without proper maintenance.

Maintenance issues can arise due to a number of factors, including:

  • Tree root removal/repair
  • New or repaired kerbing
  • Potholes
  • Age of the pavement
  • The installation of pipes or electrical conduits
  • Heavy rain
  • Staining of materials & chemicals

Staining is a common issue, with oil spots creating a less than pleasing appearance of your once immaculate driveway. It’s best to treat oil spots as soon as they appear, over time they can eat away at the binders of the asphalt mix and cause damage to the surface. Treatment doesn’t have to wait for a professional either, commercial de-greaser, water and a broom are all you need to start removing oil spots., just be sure to wash off the de-greaser as well.

Cracking can be likely to occur when asphalt driveways enter the latter part of their lifetime. Sealing cracks yearly is the best way to mitigate long term damage and avoid a small problem becoming a big one. The key issue with cracking asphalt is that it allows moisture to enter the which then expands the space underneath the surface, leading the cracks to widen further. Seal coating is another preventative measure for cracking in your asphalt driveway and will slow down the deterioration of your driveway overall. With proper ongoing maintenance, your driveway will only need to be seal coated every 3-5 years.
