Common Driveway Repair Problems
At 309 Paving Services, we see it all with driveways and parking lots. We perform residential and commercial repairs, and the most common things we see are cracks and settling issues.
How are cracks caused? There can be a few reasons. One common way is a tree an owner plants too close to the driveway. The roots extend over time and raise the soil up. The pressure of this soil on the driveway causes cracking issues. Additionally, if the soil is saturated with water, it pushes against the driveway and cause cracks as well. Lastly, cracks are caused by parking a vehicle or trailer that’s too heavy. The weight of the vehicle or trailer is too much for the driveway and causes immediate cracking.
Asphalt or Concrete?
While concrete is the most common option, asphalt is a great, durable method for driveways. It is cost effective, simple, strong, and is used in many situations. It’s great for areas with high traffic as it’s less likely to crack with regular maintenance. Additionally, it looks clean and can set off your home nicely from the rest on your street.
Repair or Replace?
You have a few options for driveway repair or replacement. 309 Paving Services can assess the state of your driveway and let you know what works best for you. In some cases, it’s not necessary to tear up the whole driveway and replace it. It may, in fact, be more economical to perform driveway repair in certain situations. If your driveway has repairs and not replacement, the patchwork process looks great. We dig up the area that needs fixed, make sure the ground is solid, and then pour in new asphalt to match the existing.
