If your idea of a home is one that’s safe, strong, long lasting yet beautiful, then you might have chosen to buy a property with decorative concrete applications on its exterior surfaces, such as a concrete driveway, and you did just the right thing.
As we all know, concrete adds many benefits to homes, not just because they look amazing, but because concrete is the most long lasting building material in the market nowadays, and we believe it’s going to stay the same for a long time, but although concrete applications can last up to 20 years if properly installed and well maintained, we are aware that it can be different in some cases, and that concrete can get damaged due to factors like extreme weather, bad maintenance and bad installation. In this case, the proper thing to do is get a replacement.
A common problem in homes is the deterioration that concrete driveways suffer, which happens mainly due to heavy traffic. We know this isn’t the end of the world, but it can definitely add many headaches to your everyday life, so if you suspect that your concrete driveway needs to be replaced, why not do it now before it’s too late.
Here are 3 signs that tell you need a concrete driveway replacement:
- Cracked concrete: If you see prominent cracks on your concrete driveway, then you need to replace it for sure. This is the most notorious sign that shows that your concrete driveway needs to be replaced. Some will recommend to repair it, but this will only make you spend money on something you will need to fix again later in the year.
- Pitted concrete: Whether you notice small or large pits on your concrete driveway, this is a clear sign that your concrete driveway needs to be replaced. Patching these holes will only be a temporary solution, but they will eventually be uncovered again, and the more you let them like this the bigger they will become.
- Sunken concrete: When you notice a part of your concrete driveway is sinking, you need to hurry up to get the problem solved as soon as possible, because the longer you wait, the more your driveway will sink and it will most likely cause costly damages.
Let’s not forget that concrete applications to your home increase the value of your property, but if you ever want to sell it and your driveway or any other application you may choose to add is not in a good condition, your property will lose a lot of its value.
