Sealing Driveways, Walkways, Patios and Lanais
Fall is the best time to fill and seal any cracks in your driveway, as repetitive freezing and thawing in small cracks and holes during the winter months may cause significant damage to concrete and asphalt driveways. The experienced technicians at Mr. Handyman can help you determine whether filling cracks or sealing an entire driveway is the best application for your home. Fall is a great time to patch and seal driveways because many sealers are most effective when applied in warmer temperatures and it may be difficult to find a time when the weather will cooperate once you get into the depths of winter.
Don't overlook your patios and walkways, as they are subject to the same effects of winter weather. Often it is also necessary to repair large cracks and holes before sealing since sealers are only intended to repair minor cracks and holes.
A properly constructed driveway should last 20 years or more, but you will need to periodically maintain it to get the most out of it. Maintain your home now and prevent costly repairs later.
