The Comfort of Home: Enjoy Your Driveway

by | Nov 3, 2017

There is almost nothing better than coming home after a hard day at work or an extended time away (like a long business trip). Just think about how you feel as you pull into your driveway – it’s almost as if all the weight your boss placed on the back of your shoulders melts away. You finally feel as though you can breathe.

Of course, coming home is even better when you’re greeted by a driveway that is professionally-graded and has a nice, smooth surface!

If you have grown children—and perhaps they even have their own children at this point—it can be nice to have them over, especially during the upcoming holiday season. When your loved ones come to celebrate the holidays with you at your home, it’s only natural that you want them to be safe as they walk from their car up to your front door. One of the best ways to make sure they don’t take a nasty fall in the driveway is to have a level surface (where water doesn’t pool and then ice over).

An uneven surface can contribute to an icy driveway, but there is another potential issue you need to be aware of as well – cracks in the pavement. These cracks can be unsightly and take away from the visual appeal of your property, but the freeze/thaw cycles we go through contribute to greater damage.

You know the old saying about “if you don’t like the weather in West Michigan, just wait five minutes.” Well, it means you can start the day bundled up for the cold, then shed layers while the sun is up, and finally end the day back in a heavy winter coat and hat. At the driveway level, ice in the morning can melt in the sun during the day. The dripping water infiltrates the cracks, and then expands when it freezes again as the sun drops at night.

In this case, water can cause major damage to your driveway – which highlights the need for crack-filling. If you don’t do this in the fall, you may need repair work in the spring!
