Driveways are just one of those home features that we never really think about, until one day we wake up and truly take a look at it.

However, the first question that most people have about their driveways is whether to use asphalt or cement. In Winnetka these are the two main types of driveways that you will see come with a home. However, there are differences in these options.  Asphalt driveways are cheaper to install. There is no denying that. However, that is where the advantages of asphalt driveways over concrete driveways end. Concrete driveways are more durable, last longer, and easier to maintain.  Asphalt driveways soften in the summer while concrete driveways crack during the winter. Therefore, the weather really plays a factor on both driveways. Concrete driveways can have a seal applied to them in order to maintain their look. Asphalt driveways need to be re-sealed every 3-5 years. Concrete driveways last longer than asphalt driveways.  

Reasons to Repair your Driveway

  • If you have existing cracks in your driveway we recommend a new concrete driveway. Cracks allow water to accumulate causing further cracking and future costly repairs.
  • Cracks in your driveway create opportunities for weeds to grow. Weeds are not only unsightly anc can lower your curb appeal, but they also enlarge cracks and cause more damage.
  • Large driveway cracks can cause progressed vehicle wear and tear.
  • Cracks in your driveway can be a safety hazard putting family and friends at risk of trips and falls.

Improperly sealed driveways may result in surface deterioration of concrete. With our harsh Illinois climate, surface deterioration is a very common problem for property owners. That is why we always recommend the addition of concrete sealer. Reduce the chance for cracked driveways by hiring the professional Winnetka concrete contractors from Scaravalle Constrcution.

  1. Reseal Cracks Immediately:  When you have a crack in your concrete driveway make sure that you can use a compound agent in order to seal the crack as soon as possible. This will make ensure that water doesn’t enter those cracks, freeze, unfreeze and make the crack bigger.
  2. Remove Stains Quickly:  While it might seem harmless, substances like motor oil can penetrate concrete.  They can stay in the concrete and cause cracks later on. When you spill on your concrete just make sure you remove the stain as soon as you possibly can.
  3. Sealants:  Concrete driveways do not have to be sealed every 3-5 years like asphalt driveways.  When it comes to sealing a concrete driveway you can get sealant to restore the look of your driveway.  Some sealants also have waterproofing chemicals in them. Waterproofing the driveway is going to prevent cracks and breaks because it prevents water from getting in there and freezing during the winter.
  4. Don’t Park on the Edges: Parking on the edges of your driveway can actually cause them to collapse easier.  Having a lot of weight resting on the edges will cause chips and more to appear and that can transfer to the middle of the driveway.
