Weather-related damage.

One of the most common causes of driveway damage is weather-related factors. Extreme temperatures, such as freezing and thawing cycles, can cause the concrete or asphalt to expand and contract, leading to cracks and potholes. Additionally, heavy rain and flooding can erode the driveway’s foundation and cause it to sink or become uneven. Our preferred contractor has experience in repairing weather-related damage and can provide solutions to ensure your driveway withstands the elements.

Heavy vehicle traffic.

Another common cause of driveway damage is heavy vehicle traffic. Constantly driving heavy vehicles, such as trucks or SUVs, on your driveway can put a lot of stress on the surface and lead to cracks and deterioration over time. This is especially true if the driveway was not designed to handle heavy loads. Our preferred contractor specializes in repairing driveways damaged by heavy vehicle traffic and can recommend solutions to strengthen and reinforce the surface, ensuring it can withstand the weight of vehicles.

Improper installation or poor construction.

One of the most common causes of driveway damage is improper installation or poor construction. If a driveway is not built correctly, it is more prone to cracks, sinking, and other forms of damage. This can be due to factors such as using low-quality materials, inadequate preparation of the ground before installation, or improper compaction of the base. Our preferred contractor has extensive experience in driveway construction and can ensure that your driveway is built to last, minimizing the risk of future damage.

Tree root growth.

Another common cause of driveway damage is tree root growth. As trees grow, their roots can extend and spread, sometimes reaching underneath driveways. The pressure from the roots can cause the driveway to crack or lift, creating an uneven surface. Additionally, tree roots can absorb moisture from the soil, leading to soil shrinkage and further destabilizing the driveway. Our preferred contractor has the expertise to assess the impact of tree roots on your driveway and provide solutions to mitigate the damage. This may involve removing or trimming tree roots, installing root barriers, or implementing other techniques to protect your driveway from further harm.

Regular wear and tear.

Over time, regular wear and tear can take a toll on your driveway. Constant exposure to the elements, such as rain, snow, and UV rays, can cause the surface of your driveway to deteriorate. Cracks, potholes, and fading are common signs of wear and tear. Additionally, heavy vehicles or equipment that are frequently parked or driven on the driveway can contribute to its deterioration. Our preferred contractor specializes in repairing and restoring driveways that have been affected by regular wear and tear. They can assess the extent of the damage and provide solutions to restore your driveway to its original condition.
