If you’re like most homeowners, you probably don’t give much thought to your driveway until problems arise. At that point, you must decide between repairing the issue and hoping for the best or having a new driveway installed.
If you go with the latter option, choosing the right contractor is an absolute must. El Pueblo Woodworking provides a wide range of essential home services to residents of Albuquerque. Among our many other impressive capabilities, we can also install a driveway at your home.
Signs That It’s Time to Replace Your Driveway
When problems arise, it can be difficult to determine whether your driveway needs to be repaired or replaced. If you notice the following signs, replacement is highly recommended:
- Problems With Drainage – Pooling water on your driveway is never a good sign. If the problem is left untreated, it can also lead to further damage. Drainage issues usually result from an uneven driveway, in which case replacement is the best course of action.
- Cracking – Cracks in your driveway let in water, but they can also allow gas, grease, and other substances to penetrate the ground. It’s true that some cracks can be adequately repaired, but sizable cracks usually call for a total replacement.
- Old Age – A well-maintained driveway typically lasts about 20 years. If yours is nearing this age or even older, it’s time to consider a new installation.
- Poor Appearance – Even if your driveway isn’t experiencing serious issues, you may be unhappy with its appearance. In this case, a new driveway will greatly increase your home’s curb appeal.
