Replacing Concrete Driveway.
Concrete driveways are a common replacement for asphalt driveways. They are typically used because they are more durable, less expensive, and less prone to cracking than asphalt.
A driveway made of decorative concrete is very easy to maintain and will only require occasional care over the course of its lifespan. There is no driveway paving material, including concrete that is completely maintenance-free. These tips will help you preserve the look and durability of your investment.
The best way to maintain your driveway is to clean it on occasion and seal it. The amount of vehicle traffic and weather conditions that the concrete will be exposed to, and how often they need to be cleaned out and resealed, will dictate the frequency at which you should clean them. The average driveway needs to be sealed every two years. A variety of commercial sealers can be purchased at hardware and concrete material stores. Or ask your contractor for recommendations. Apply the sealer as directed by the manufacturer.
Sealer may help concrete resist stain absorption. However, it is advisable to clean up oil, grease, and any other spillages as soon as possible. The concrete may discolor if it is not cleaned with chemicals or pressure washed.
The winter use of deicers to seal driveways can result in surface damage. Because they chemically attack concrete, products containing ammonium nutritrates and ammonium sulphates will be especially dangerous. Calcium chloride (or sodium chloride) will not cause as much damage but can harm the vegetation and corrode metallic. It is important to not use any deicers during the first winter of driveway placement. Concrete that has just been laid can be more sensitive to salt-related problems. Alternative options include using sand as traction.
Concrete can be a very durable driveway paving material, but it is not designed for heavy-duty vehicles such as a big moving van or large pieces of construction equipment.
