Three Signs It’s Time for Driveway Construction: Don’t Ignore Them!

Has it ever occurred to you, while passing your driveway, that “Hmm, something’s not right”? It is the doormat that invites guests inside. Consider these three glaring red flags if you’re scratching your head and debating whether or not your driveway needs an upgrade.

Splits Deeper Than Your Giggles

Okay, so let’s talk about breaks. Fractures of a minor nature? It is not a huge deal. However, red flags should be raised when they are as broad as a flowerbed. Just ask yourself whether you want your visitors to climb out of a little canyon to get to your front door. It’s unattractive, and it might even endanger people’s lives. Plus, water seeps in, making things worse. If the cracks in your driveway are making more connections than you are, it’s time to take action.

Puddle Jumping Every Storm

When it rains, does your driveway become a pond? Ducks love puddles, but they’re no good for your car. Standing water may cause more cracking, surface weakness, and possibly foundation damage. All kinds of issues are being invited to your driveway’s puddle party. Although the cause of drainage problems may be a mystery, they always indicate that your driveway might need some TLC.

A Bet on Your Age: In This Day and Age

Even driveways eventually wear out and need to be replaced. It’s probably time to say goodbye if yours has more years of life left than your fingers. Driveways lose their functionality and beauty as they age. Like a comfortable and familiar pair of shoes. Comfortable? Yes. Breaking down? And yeah, too. Maintaining an aging driveway may be more expensive than just replacing it.

Wrapping It

So, now you know the three telltale indications that your driveway is begging for an upgrade, but you’re not paying attention to them? That’s like ignoring a dripping faucet. When it comes to driveways, it’s best to be safe than sorry. So, don’t wait; contact AG General Contractor LLC today!
