Often overlooked by homeowners, yet essential to the curb appeal of any home is the driveway. It is the first patch of pavement your car traverses on your morning commute, where your kids play basketball, and more often than not where you say goodbye to friends and family. Over time the asphalt that composes your driveway will degrade and may need to be repaired or placed. It is important for any homeowner to know what the signs are that your driveway needs some care, or may need to be replaced altogether.
Driveway Repair vs. Driveway Replacement
There are a number of factors our expert asphalt assessment team will take into account when looking at your driveway, pipestem, or private road to determine if simple crack filling or sealcoating are the best method of repair, or if the entire thing needs to be replaced.
If the pavement has become too fragmented, to the point where crack fill rubber would do little to bind the pieces of asphalt together, an entirely new portion will need to be put down. In this situation, sealcoating and crack filling will do little to alleviate the underlying issues at the base of the driveway, and may only address cosmetic concerns temporarily. Additionally, if our assessment reveals any issues with driveway drainage or water management (driveway is pooling water toward the home foundation, water is unsettling the driveway base etc.) then a new driveway is most likely necessary.
