Chattanooga’s Premier Concrete Contractor
Driveways will naturally deteriorate over time from the consistent use of cars and exposure the elements of nature. It’s very common for concrete and asphalt driveways to crack over time, but it’s not a hopeless case. Sealing the driveway will help to protect your driveway from rain, hail, snow, winter ice, oil, and all things that can contribute to a deteriorating driveway over time. Concrete is stronger than asphalt, and will generally last longer, but it’s still important to maintain your concrete driveway to increase its lifespan.
Sealing your driveway will help to prolong the life of your driveway surface, making it last much longer than if left untreated. The general recommendation is to have your driveway sealed every 2 to 3 years to keep it in great shape for as long as possible. If your driveway is made of asphalt, you can expect it to last anywhere from 15 to 30 years, but making sure to seal it on a regular basis will help your driveway stay intact for much longer. Even though concrete is much stronger than Asphalt, sealing your concrete driveway is an important part of keeping it in great condition!
