Gary T. Wood Contracting Company Inc.: Expert Driveway Assessments
We start all our projects with a thorough assessment before diving right into the repair. Our inspections involve checking for cracks and potholes that pose a great risk to your driveway’s structure. Some of these cracks or potholes happen due to a run in with sharp objects like shovels, others are from the expansion of groundwater due to freezing.
Regardless of the cause, our paving contractors will target the problem, repair it, and provide regular maintenance and upkeep to keep the damage at bay.
Delivering High-Quality Driveway Maintenance
Maintaining a driveway is an important part of property upkeep. How often you require maintenance depends on the kind of traffic it gets. Here are a few ways in which we effectively maintain either concrete or asphalt driveways:
This is one of the most important parts of effectively maintaining an asphalt or concrete driveway. Sealing the cracks helps to prevent water from undermining the integrity of the driveway. Water in the cracks can cause the cracking to spread and ultimately create problems like potholes. Sealing the cracks every one to two years is strongly recommended.
Sealcoating and Resealing
Coating the driveway can effectively reduce the deterioration process caused by water runoff. For concrete driveways, concrete sealers are used to protect the surface by preventing water from entering into the porous surface and thus, help to delay the process and effect of weathering. An asphalt driveway or concrete driveway should be resealed every three to five years.
Managing Oil Spills
Oil can stain a concrete and asphalt driveway and cause it to get sticky and soft over time if not properly cleaned after spillage. The oil will also attract dust and dirt. With our regular maintenance, oil spills will be treated upon discovery. Depending on the amount of traffic your driveway undergoes, you may need this service more regularly.
It is crucial to avoid salt and ice melting products on the driveway. Salt can eat deep into a concrete driveway and cause serious deteriorating effects. We’ll be able to protect your driveway from the harmful effects salt can have.
