Repairs or Resurfacing – What’s the Best Option for Your Driveway?  

If your driveway has seen some wear and has a few faults, it’s certainly time to hire a professional that can restore it to its original condition. When it comes to cracks, holes, uneven surfaces, and other types of issues, the options are either repairs or complete concrete driveway resurfacing. Talk to an expert to see which option is best for your needs and take a look at the following factors that might help with your decision!

How Extensive Is the Damage

If your driveway has a few cracks and divots, it’s likely that repairs such as crack filling and patching are enough to repair the issue. Alternatively, if more than 25% of the driveway surface is damaged and the cracks and holes are too deep or wide, having the driveway resurfaced is the more effective solution.

Is There Space for Resurfacing

In order to properly resurface a driveway, it’s important to make sure that the edging is high enough to support it. If the edges of the driveway are unsupported and protrude too high, it’s possible for them to start chipping and crumbling away over time, which is difficult to properly repair.

Is the Driveway Very Old

Most driveways have an expected lifespan of 25 to 30 years. If your driveway is older than that, it might be a good time to consider having it completely replaced. This is because there could be foundation issues and other age-caused problems at this point that would lead to more frequent cracking, unevenness, and other issues.

Is a Clean New Look Important to You

If one of the main reasons you’re considering improving your driveway is to enhance its appearance and make it look like new, then resurfacing might be a better option than repairs. A completely new, fresh, and clean surface will deliver the appearance you want to add to your property’s value and curb appeal.
