A cracked driveway can affect your home’s appearance and your family’s safety.
Water that seeps into paving materials can freeze and expand. In warmer weather, contraction can cause the driveway to crack.
Keep your gutters clear so water doesn’t flow toward your driveway.
Make sure your driveway slopes enough for water to drain.
Use a driveway sealant to repel water.
If trees or bushes are located near your driveway, you may not realize that roots are growing under the driveway until you notice cracks. Remove vegetation now to avoid a cracked driveway.
Keep a few inches along the driveway free of sod and weeds so water can drain.
