Updating Your Warren Driveway This Winter

While the first day of winter isn’t officially upon us yet, the cold and snowy weather makes it feel like it is. This inclement weather makes most homeowners want to shelf any home improvement projects until the warmer months. That may be a good idea for some areas of your home, but your driveway isn’t something that you should leave in disrepair this winter. If your Warren driveway is cracked or damaged, consider replacing it as soon as possible.

Why You Shouldn’t Wait to Replace Your Driveway

It can be tempting to simply replace your Warren driveway in the warmer months, but that isn’t a good idea. In the winter months, water will fill the cracks of your driveway and turn to ice, expanding as it does so. When this happens, those cracks will become worse and leave uneven spots in your driveway. Salt that is used on your driveway can potentially worsen the damage to existing driveway issues.

Driving on uneven or cracked surfaces isn’t great for your car’s tires. Since the roads are generally slick and wet in the winter months, it’s more important than ever to ensure that your tires aren’t being damaged by your driveway. There’s nothing worse than getting in the car to leave for work and realizing the tire of your car is flat.

Cracked and uneven surfaces make snow clean up harder, as well. If you hit an uneven patch of your driveway, there’s always the possibility of breaking your shovel, or worse, jarring your back and injuring yourself. Clearing the snow is a pain enough as it is in the winter months, there’s no reason to add literal pain to the equation.

The Benefits of Updating Your Driveway With Concrete

The most popular material for driveways is concrete and for good reason! There are several reasons to choose concrete over other materials for your driveway. Here are just a few benefits to consider:

  • Concrete is a durable option. The durability of concrete ensures that your driveway will last for years to come. On average, a concrete driveway that is kept in good repair will last for 30 years!
  • Concrete is low maintenance. Keeping your concrete in good repair is a simple process due to the low maintenance required for concrete. Sealing your driveway adds an added layer of protection to an already durable material and is a great way to maintain your driveway
  • Concrete is customizable. Most people think of traditional concrete when they picture a driveway. Traditional concrete offers a clean and fresh look for your driveway, but there are other concrete options as well. Using stamped concrete is a great way to create a custom look for your driveway without compromising durability.
