What Are the Signs of a Damaged Driveway?
Understanding the signs of damaged concrete will help you decide whether it is a better option to repair or completely replace concrete driveway. One of the most obvious signs of damage are cracks. Cracks can occur for many different reasons so it’s important to understand its source. Sometimes cracks can happen because of initial installation mistakes. If you suspect that faulty concrete installation is the cause of your concrete driveway damage, call us at Artistic Concrete Designs and we’ll come to check it out before it causes further problems for your home or business. Our professionals at Artistic Concrete Designs in Atlanta will assess and diagnose the damages and guide you in your decision to repair or replace your concrete driveway.
Another sign of damaged concrete is sunken areas or dents. When concrete doesn’t have proper support underneath, it can cause it to sink. With constant excessive weight on the concrete like cars, a driveway without proper support or faulty initial installation is easily prone to damages and sinking- even for the most durable concrete.
Other esthetic imperfections like oil stains can occur on concrete driveways, especially if they lack surface treatment like polished concrete. It is important to remember that different kinds of damages can be treated using different methods. Our trained professionals are here to help you create the most ideal driveway for your home or business.
Should I Repair or Replace My Concrete Driveway?
The age of the concrete can play a big role in deciding whether you should repair or completely replace your driveway. If your concrete driveway is relatively new and already cracking, it’s likely that it wasn’t installed properly and will continue to cause problems. Concrete, especially if it is bare, untreated concrete, will continue to deteriorate with inclement weather and salt damage. While there are ways to assess and check the source of the concrete damage, it is best to consult a professional for proper inspection.
There are several options to repair your concrete driveway and even up its style so that it not only looks better but is more resilient to potential damages caused by excessive use and weight. One popular option we offer is surface treatments such as polished concrete which allows for a customized design to suit your style and is resilient to damages and stains.
