Concrete Pavers Share Tips for Driveway Maintenance During Winter, Windham, Connecticut

Knowing how to take care of your driveway during the winter months is crucial if you want to prevent accidents and protect your cement from becoming damaged. Cold weather conditions including freezing temperatures, snow, and ice take a toll on concrete surfaces. To help you do everything you can to lengthen the life of your driveway, Builder’s Concrete East in Windham, CT, recommends taking a few easy steps to decrease chances of damage.

These concrete pavers offer the following tips for winter driveway maintenance:

  • Seal & Waterproof Your Driveway: Before winter arrives, call a driveway paving company and ask if they can seal your concrete and make it waterproof. This will decrease risks of water seeping into cracks and crevices and causing degradation of the cement.
  • DrivewayRemove Snow & Ice Regularly: If you don’t already have a snow plow company in your call list, find someone now that you can rely on. By keeping snow and ice off your driveway, you’ll protect your family and automobiles from accidents while preventing damage to the concrete.
  • Re-Route Gutters & Downspouts: Carefully inspect your property for any drainage problems. These can be especially dangerous for driveways, as you’ll want to divert all downspouts and gutters away to discourage ice formation. While you’re at it, edge around your driveway to promote proper drainage.
  • Avoid Using Salt On Cement: Salt actually damages concrete driveways, so try to find another method to keep ice off your property.

Preparing your driveway for winter will prevent property damage and extend the life of the concrete. To learn how Builder’s Concrete East can help, call their concrete paving experts at (860) 456-4111, or visit them online for a complete list of products and services.
