Driveways are some of the most frequently used aspects of a property. It’s used at the beginning and end of almost every day, and the wear and tear it receives can be easy to overlook. And with all the terms surrounding the improvement of a driveway, like seal coating, lining, replacing, and resurfacing, it can be tough to decide what’s the right way to repair your driveway appropriately. In this post from the Lone Star Paving blog, we’ll discuss resurfacing of driveways, and when is the right to resurface your driveway in Austin and Central Texas.
What Is Driveway Resurfacing?
While many other aspects of driveway improvement are focused on single areas of the driveway, resurfacing is concerned with the entire driveway. With driveway resurfacing, power washers are used to thoroughly clean the surface, and cracks and holes are covered with concrete to make the surface smooth and level. Then, a new layer is placed over the surface and seal coated to protect the driveway in the future. After 48-72 hours, the newly resurfaced driveway will be ready for use.
When Should I Resurface My Driveway?
There are a number of signs that it may be time to resurface your driveway. Isolated cracks and holes can usually be repaired through one-off patches and fill-ins. On the other hand, if the entire driveway has been compromised, or its structural integrity is starting to deteriorate, it’s probably time to resurface the driveway. One of the telltale signs that it’s time to resurface your driveway is unevenness like sloping areas or bumps in certain areas of the driveway. Things like large, deep potholes (larger than 1 inch deep), or alligator cracks (thin cracks that resemble alligator scales) are other signs that your driveway may be due for resurfacing services. Pooling water may be a giveaway for a faulty drainage system, which can eat at your driveway as well as the ground underneath it, causing structural damage that can be a reason to get resurfacing services. And finally, when a driveway reaches twenty years of age, it is usually time for surfacing to avoid issues before they start happening in spades.
