Signs You Need to Repave or Replace Your Driveway

We are finally well into spring. How is the condition of your driveway? Harsh winters, along with age, really damages your driveway over time. Old, cracked, and uneven driveways, don’t only look unsightly, but it can be hazardous to your friends and family as well.

Repaving your driveway not only make it safer, it will also update your home’s aesthetic appeal, which will increase its value.

So, how do you know if your driveway needs a face lift or needs to be replaced? Here are 4 signs to look out for to help you make your decision.

Your Driveway’s Age

Driveways need replacing every 20-30 years, depending on their condition. Even with no visible damage, the foundation of your driveway breaks down over time, which will eventually show through the surface.

Multiple Cracks

If your driveway has multiple cracks, you should have them looked at. Even if they seem minor, these cracks can quickly grow and cause further damage, as well as increase risk of injury for those walking or playing on your driveway.

Holes in the Pavement

Hole are never a good sign. If you notice holes in your driveway it would be best for you to repave as soon as possible. Water from rain and snow will fill the holes, causing them to expand and cause further damage. As mentioned above, safety is another big issue. Having your driveway repaved will prevent the hazard of tripping as well as damaging your vehicle.

Pavement Erosion

If you notice that your driveway is crumbling or has areas where the pavement is eroding, be sure to repave your driveway as soon as you can. The longer this issue is left, the worse it will get. Prevent tripping hazards by renewing your driveway.

Choose Asphalt!

There are many reasons to choose asphalt to pave your driveway. One being that asphalt is recyclable and one of the most reused/recycled materials in North America. It is also more environmentally friendly, and better for vehicles. It can outlast other types of paving and is a great choice to improve the look of your home.
