Most people neglect these parts of the home and deem their maintenance as a waste of money. However, by maintaining the patio, driveway, and other paved areas, you actually increase the value of your house! Moreover, you get to preserve the aesthetics of the home. Below is a small list including the best maintenance tips for your driveway, patio, paving, and steps.
Regardless of your expertise and knowledge in the construction field, you need to trust experts with your driveways and patios. When your driveway or patio is cracked or damaged, consult a paving contractor or a driveway contractor to advise you on the way forward. At times, you may need to replace your whole driveway; Other times, just a small repair. Nonetheless, the experts will know the type of driveway suitable for your home.
During patio construction or other paved areas, the contractor can recommend the best patio design for your home. He/she can also advise you on the type of paving stones to use based on your soil type. As Mason Pro, we are also a paving company. We have a team of expert contractors, both driveways and patio, ready for consultation each day. By following their expert advice, you can never go wrong.
Before cleaning your paved areas, you need to sweep away all large debris. From tree leaves, branches, roots, and small stones, to the small debris that may have accumulated around your paved areas. Sweeping at least once a week ensures that the cleaning process becomes more manageable. It also prevents staining of the paved areas when the tree leaves get wet!
During winter, de-icing using chemicals may be the fastest solution but not the best solution for your driveway, walks, and steps. This is because, depending on the material used in these paths, some chemicals, when used, tarnish the paving. Concrete materials such as the stamped concrete patio and concrete driveways will be affected if the standard ammonium products are used. Also, during cleaning, check the cleaning agents’ components to ensure that it doesn’t react with the paving.
After a concrete patio construction, the patio and pavers are sealed to avoid staining. However, after a while (2-3yrs), the sealant starts to wear off. You, therefore, need to reapply the sealer after this period. However, before sealing, consult your concrete patio contractor to find out the best sealer for your home patio.
Removing Areas with Algae, Molds, and Mildew
In most driveways and patios, you can never miss algae or moss along the way. Mosses and lichens are, however, more dominant in patios and permeable pavers than driveways. These plants can be eliminated by mixing chemicals with water than flushing it through the paving’s cracks and joints. There are numerous other maintenance tips you can try for your paving. Regardless of whether you have the Belgard patio, the paver patio, concrete patios, or the permeable pavers, these maintenance tips should work for you. The most important of these tips is, however, consulting with experts.
