The eventual shift in the ground causes the cement to literally sink, becoming un-level with other parts of the cement. Mold, algae, and weeds begin to proliferate underneath and into the cracks. Both unsightly and unhealthy, these allergens wreak havoc on your vehicles as well as the health of you and your family. With a little periodic attention, you can add years onto your driveway concrete.
The driveway is usually the first thing you see when you drive by or up to your home entry. It is seen by everyone driving on the roads nearby, walkers on the sidewalk, and people in your neighborhood. When it is in good repair, it defines your pride of ownership statement to the world. When it looks in disrepair, it can set the tone for your property. Along with poor lawn care, poor concrete care can be a real red flag of overall property health. The first thing a prospective buyer thinks when they see cracks is “foundation issue!” Even when a driveway has cracks that are not at all structural to the home, having cracks repaired always gives a better impression while also staving off further damage to the areas.
