Your residential driveway goes through a lot. From car maintenance to shooting hoops to loading the kids in and out of the minivan, our driveways are used every day and submitted to a significant amount of wear and tear. However, concrete is a durable material meant to last for years. It also requires little maintenance over time. If your driveway is looking a little worse for wear and you’re deciding whether to repair or replace it, you’ve come to the right place. For more information on our services from residential to commercial, visit our website. 

Clean It Up – The first step to understanding the depth of what you’re working with is making sure you start with a clean surface. Begin with some dish soap and water and a broom to remove any loose debris on the surface. In addition, experts recommend that pressure washing is performed once a year to keep discoloration and staining at bay. 

Repair – If the driveway can be salvaged, it’s best to go with a repair over replacement in order to get the most life out of your driveway and save money. We recommend a repair in the event of small cracks, puddling, discoloration, or uneven slabs due to settling. For more on how to do home repairs, visit our blog

Replace – If the driveway is cracked beyond repair, experiencing wide-scale issues, or sagging and cracking in the center of the driveway, we recommend a replacement. If your driveway is over 20-30 years old, it’s likely nearing the end of its life. Thankfully, concrete is a great investment that lasts for a long time.
