Fall Home Maintenance To-Do Item: Fix driveway cracks

Driveway cracks. They’re one of those issues that are just small enough that they don’t bother most homeowners, but, if left untreated, can become much larger and costly issues in a year or two. When left exposed to the elements, those cracks can fill with rainwater, snow and moisture.

Small Fissures Can Turn into Major Fixes

If temperatures dip far enough, that moisture will freeze and expand, thereby forcing the cracks to grow even larger. If you don’t want a giant pothole in your driveway, add filling those small, inconspicuous cracks to your fall home maintenance list.

DIY Prevention

Filling driveway cracks doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, it’s relatively easy. Just pick up some concrete crack sealer from your local hardware store and pour it into the cracks. Voila! One check off your list.
