With the pass of the years you will probably start to see cracks, potholes and other wear and tear you may be wondering where it came from and how to fix it. If this happen repairing your driveway is a good choice if the repairs will allow you to maintain the integrity of the driveway as a whole.

These damages can come from many sources, including motor oil or gas, and the weight of your vehicle.

Small cracks: Small cracks should be repaired before they spread. If not fixed they will become deeper and wider and is more likely to become an issue.

A pothole: One pothole can be easily fixed and, if addressed quickly enough, repairs can prevent future damage.

Sunken areas: If the driveway is sinking lower than your garage floor, you can patch it and make it level again.

Faded color: Don’t worry if your driveway is a different color than it used to be. While this is a sign of age, it is still fine to use. If your driveway is concrete, you can fix the color by adding a sealant.

Crumbling edges: Crumbling at the side of your asphalt driveway probably means the edges were too thin to begin with. Consider adding additional edging to prevent further damage.

If you are concerned about the look of patched concrete or filled in cracks, resurfacing it’s also an option you can consider. Resurfacing includes replacing the top layer of concrete or asphalt instead of tearing it up completely or patching small portions. This will give your driveway a completely new look.
