Why You Should Repair Your Driveway This Spring

Spring is a great time of year for a number of construction projects, and repairing or replacing your driveway is no exception. Your driveway needs to be in top condition, especially when the heat of summer and the cold of next winter come to pass. Extreme temperatures can greatly affect the concrete or asphalt of your driveway, and repairing during the spring months is generally recommended.

When You Need Repair or Replacement

The winter months are hard on a driveway. If you started with any mild cracks in your driveway, chances are after the precipitation and cold weather of the winter months those cracks have become large crevices. As water seeps into the concrete or asphalt and freezes, it expands, causing the driveway to buckle and cracks to become quite large.

In some cases, your driveway can be fixed from such cracks. If the cracks have become holes and the structure of the driveway is compromised, you may need a replacement. Fixing or replacing your driveway during the spring months offers the best weather for the job.

Why Spring?

Spring offers some of the best weather for driveway repair or replacement. The damage to your driveway from the winter should be fixed as soon as possible before it becomes worse. In addition, the hot summer months often make it difficult for concrete and asphalt to set quickly or correctly. Milder temperatures and dry days allow spring to be a great time for driveway replacement or repair.
