Can I Install My Own Driveway?
Our team at Show Me Retaining Wall are experts at installing, maintaining and repairing driveways - and we do not recommend home owners undertake this task themselves. Driveways have to stand up to a lot of traffic, and if laid incorrectly will simply not last the test of time. Add to that issues of staying safe when installing a driveway without proper training and equipment, and it’s simply not worth it. Have a professional come and assess your property and give a no obligation quote for driveway installation, and know you’ll get a high quality product which will last.
Driveways can be damaged by a number of things - often because installation has not been completed properly. If the driveway is not left to cure properly, and heavy traffic passes over it too soon, you may find damage. If the surface requires sealing and it’s not done, if unsuitable products are used for cleaning, if oil is left to pool on the surface, or if there are unpredictable extremes of weather, you may find damage. If there are cracks or sinking in the surface of the driveway, you should get a professional opinion on the cause and best way to remedy the problem. Small problems typically don’t stay that way for long, so having early repairs done is usually a lot cheaper and more convenient than waiting until the damage has spread.
Depending on they type of driveway you have installed, you may need to take some steps to maintain it and make sure it lasts well into the future. Your contractor will talk you through the steps needed - keeping the driveway clean and making regular visual checks for damage is essential. We may also advise you to have the surface sealed every few years, or talk through which products for cleaning and removing oil will be the safest to use on the particular surface. Proper maintenance as well as regular repairs whenever needed will make sure your driveway lasts a lifetime.
