Spring is a season for renewal and new beginnings. Flowers bloom, the Earth begins to breathe new life again and there is an unmistakably beautiful aroma in the air. It’s also a time to clean and maintain your home and most importantly, your driveway paving Vancouver.
During winter, it’s likely that your driveway took a beating. As spring quickly approaches, it’s time to bring back regular maintenance and make sure it’s ready to face yet another season. Let’s take a look at how you can go about doing that.
Driveway Paving Vancouver: Spring Prep
First and foremost: clean! Make sure to spend plenty of time cleaning away debris, dried leaves, bird droppings and other dirt from the pavement. This tends to quickly build up and harden during the winter months.
Inspect your driveway thoroughly and look for damages like cracks, potholes, crumbles or weed. Even a hairline crack has the power to become a large crumbling pothole requiring costly, timely repairs. Inspection and prevention is key to saving money and and ensuring a functional, beautiful driveway that will serve your family for years to come.
If you do notice any hairline cracks, crumbles or other minor forms of damage, it’s time for a patch up. We highly recommend turning to a professional company like Richmond Blacktop for this to avoid making a mistake, furthering the problem and spending twice as much than you originally planned. Patching is more than enough for small issues.
Before any bigger repairs, make sure to give your driveway a thorough clean and draw out weeds and crumbled asphalt from holes and cracks. This will help out once we arrive on-site. Repairing rather than leaving these problems unattended will do you a world of good in the long-run both for your safety and wallet.
This part is critical. Sealcoating your driveway protects and rejuvenates your asphalt pavement. It acts as a topcoat – a layer that protects your driveway from the damaging effects of UVA/UVB rays, heat damage, and weathering.
