Tips For Protecting Your Pavement Driveway During The Winter

A driveway is a serious investment and an important part of your property, which is why it’s important to take good care of it – and it’s especially crucial during the winter season. From the team at Ambrosio Landscape Solutions, here are a few helpful tips for protecting your driveway this winter: 

Remove Off Any Debris

Before getting started with any protective measures for your driveway, it’s crucial to get rid of any debris first. Sitting debris can freeze and contribute to pavement damages that can be difficult to repair, so it’s best not to worry and make sure your driveway is always clear.

Apply a Sealcoat

One of the best ways to protect your driveways’ surface is to apply a sealcoat. Sealcoating helps fill in any cracks before the snow arrives to keep it protected from damages all season long. Contact a local professional for help getting this done safely. 

Shovel When You Can

Once again, being proactive and prepared goes a long way. Ice thawing and melting over and over again is what causes cracks and potholes to develop on your pavement. So, going outside and regularly shoveling to remove any standing water and snow will prevent ice development after a snowfall.  

Be Mindful of Salt

You may have learned that salting your driveway is the best way to prevent ice formation, but there are other negatives to salt that you should be aware of. For example, runoff containing salt can harm plants and wildlife, and if you have pets, the salt can be harmful to them too. Finding a deicing mix that is more environmentally friendly and regularly shoveling are your best bets to minimize ice formation.  

Don’t Put Off Getting Repairs Done

You may think letting repairs go undone until the warmer months is fine, but this is, in fact, a mistake. Getting potholes and cracks repaired when they first appear helps prevent further and more costly damage. Turn to your local professional driveway repair team for the best job done.
