You may not give your driveway much thought, but it’s one of the most prominent elements of your exterior and landscape design. Ensuring it’s well maintained will improve your home’s overall curb appeal and value, making concrete driveway care a worthwhile investment. 

Top 5 Concrete Driveway Maintenance Tips 

Want to keep your driveway looking its best and extend its life span? Check out five of the best concrete driveway maintenance tips:

  1. Be aware of parking patterns: Try to avoid parking in the same spot every day or leaving heavy equipment on the concrete.
  2. Keep water off: Keep water and rock salt from sitting on your driveway to discourage small gaps from widening.
  3. Remove stains: If harsh substances like gasoline or oil spill onto your driveway, clean them up right away so they do not stain the concrete or cause it to deteriorate. 
  4. Seal the concrete: How frequently you should seal your driveway depends on factors like the weather and the amount of traffic. When the concrete is still curing, the sealer can be applied to add a layer of protection and help prevent staining. Once your concrete driveway has been installed, though, you should seal it every two years or whenever you start seeing some signs of wear and tear.
  5. Make repairs quickly: If you notice any cracks or damage, be sure to have them professionally repaired right away so they don’t compromise the structural integrity and turn into a more involved or costly repair.
