Here Comes the Cold

Hardscapes Inc. Driveway RepairThere is a bite in the air this morning. Some of the broad leaf trees already littered with yellow. Fall too soon.

There is still time to address some of those concrete issues you were trying to get to over the summer.

Cracked sidewalks and driveways can don’t like this time of year. Big differences in temperature over the course of the day can expand and contract crack and leave fissures where water can collect and create even larger cracks as winter approaches.

Now is the time to get a new surface for your walk or drive before the snow flys.

Like the old commercial said.

Concrete Resurfacing

BandageNo matter how much care you take with your concrete driveway it will eventually start to wear.

If your home was built in the last fifty years your driveway, and probably your walkway, are built with concrete. These outdoor features of your home need to be made of materials that are durable and long lasting, and concrete fits the bill.

What do you do when signs of aging start to appear? Whether it’s pitting due to oil or other petroleum products leaking from vehicles onto the surface, or from shifting soil that leaves cracks in the cement where grass and weeds can grow, your driveway can become an ugly welcome home.

If your driveway is looking like it may need to be jack-hammered out and re-poured that can be a big expense.

Here’s the good news, don’t just put a bandage on it, there is another solution. Concrete resurfacing is a way to bring those aging concrete walks and drives back to life.

Concrete Heaving

concrete heavingFrost can damage concrete in many ways. Two of the most prominent are, having the frozen ground heave because of ice crystals forming in the soil, and collapsing due to these ice crystals thawing in the spring. When the weather becomes cold in the winter, frost penetrates the ground and freezes water trapped in the pours of the earth. Water flows from wet to dry so water from below th frost line is drawn up. As it reaches the frost line it freezes. This eventually creates a thick layer of ice. The expansion caused by the freezing ice creates a layer that heaves the ground an equal distance of that layer. Finally the pressure below the concrete can no longer sustain its integrity and cracks.

Filling these cracks can leave ugly jagged lines in your concrete drives and walkways. Professionals like Hardscapes Inc. have many methods of repairing just this kind of winter damage and bring you concrete outdoor surfaces back to their original beauty.
