Resealing your driveway probably isn’t at the top of your home maintenance list, but there are a few key reasons why it should be! Here’s why.
Among the many services Excel is proud to provide is driveway paving. It’s not the most glamorous-sounding home exterior project, but it’s an important one– and it makes more of a difference than you might think! Here’s why keeping up with resealing your driveway is important.
What is Driveway Resealing?
As with any home exterior feature, paved driveways face the elements 24/7, and it eventually takes its toll. Over time, cracks and fissures inevitably appear, and it’s recommended that homeowners should have their driveway resealed every three to five years. This just means we’ll add a thin layer of asphalt over your driveway to take care of wear and fissures. Exiting the house doesn’t have to be a hassle!
Why Is Driveway Resealing So Important?
As we mentioned above, pavement is susceptible to damage due to the elements– and your driveway faces even more risk of damage from the heavy vehicles constantly passing over it. When it comes to the weather, small cracks can grow quickly as water flows into the fissures and freezes during the winter months. Water expands as it freezes, forcing the cracks to widen, and soon you’re looking at the dirt underneath your asphalt driveway as it fills with weeds, leaves, pine needles, and other detritus. Don’t wait until the fissures in your driveway start to look like the Grand Canyon– schedule a resealing to catch the damage while it’s easily manageable.
Resealing’s Aesthetic Benefits
There’s nothing quite so satisfying as gazing out over a freshly paved stretch of asphalt. Touching up your driveway can add a lot of value to your home, not to mention curb appeal– and for a shockingly low price!
