As readers of our blog will know, we try to keep our customers informed with all the tips and techniques they need to make the most of their pattern imprinted concrete driveways.
In an earlier blog article we looked at the importance of maintaining and caring for your driveway. Spring is a perfect time for giving it a good clean – and we looked at easy ways to do this in our spring clean blog.
Homeowners will be pleased to find that it’s simple to maintain their concrete driveway, especially when compared to tarmac and block paving alternatives. Simply wash it down with some soapy water and it will look like new! If the surface is really grubby, try a power washer to clear spaces between tyre marks and weeds.
If your driveway has been in place for a while, you may need to reseal it – ideally this should be done every 2-5 years. We offer a complete driveway resealing surface and this offers a number of protective benefits, including prevented unwanted plant growth, and avoiding cracks.
Look to maintain your drive regularly too by avoiding any prolonged exposure of damaging substances, including chemical cleaners and de-icers, salt, grit and oil. Ideally use sand when you need winter traction, and wash away spills as they occur.
These simple steps will ensure that your pattern imprinted concrete driveway remains a source of pride for many years to come!
