Sometimes, all a driveway needs is a little extra tender loving care to look brand
new. However, sometimes a professional is needed to do some major work. If the
winter and spring have left your driveway in tatters, it can be hard to determine
whether or not you need some professional help. Here are the easiest ways to tell
whether or not a professional is needed to repair your driveway.
Small driveway repairs often include tiny cracks and holes in the surface of your
driveway. These can be repaired quickly and easily with concrete caulk or patching
material. It’s a good idea to fill in cracks and holes as soon as you notice them to
prevent water from getting into the surface of your driveway. Once water seeps in, it
will continue to expand and degrade the quality of the rest of your driveway and the
surface that your driveway is on top of.
Could your driveway use a facelift? If cosmetic issues are ruining the appearance of
your driveway, you should hire a professional to reseal or resurface your driveway.
The concrete might have been mixed poorly or distributed in an uneven manner. A
professional driveway repair company, like Testa Paving, will be able to
troubleshoot what the original problem was and repair your driveway so that it is
As you probably could’ve guessed, major issues require major help! Do you have a
sunken portion of driveway? This might be caused by erosion beneath the base of
your driveway. Do you have large cracks, potholes, or damage on the surface of your
driveway? Again, it’s best to trust these major repairs with a professional. In
extreme cases of neglected driveways, it is often better to tear out the entire length
of driveway and replace it instead of trying to repair what’s there.
