Keeping your concrete driveway in tip-top condition should always be a priority for Lincoln homeowners. When visitors come to your home, you want to ensure that your property makes the best first impression possible. Having a well-built and well-maintained driveway is key to ensuring that your home makes a great impression on anyone.

Our concrete contractors at Stephens & Smith Construction Company have been working in the concrete industry since 1971. With more than fifty years of experience under our belt, we have established ourselves as leaders in our industry. Not only do we have the expertise required to build beautiful concrete driveways, but our Lincoln concrete team also understands how to maintain your driveway to ensure that it looks great and stands the test of time.

Below, we outline five simple tips to help you to maintain your driveway moving forward.

Keep Your Concrete Driveway Clean

Like any other feature of your Lincoln home, you must clean it regularly to keep your concrete driveway looking great. Our concrete contractors recommend power washing your driveway once every six months to prevent the build-up of dirt, debris, moss, and other unwanted particles over time.

Avoid De-Icing

During the colder winter months, ice can often be present on your concrete driveway. While your first instinct might be to use de-icing chemicals, these harsh substances will typically do more harm than good. Using a natural solution such as salt or rock salt will help to prevent possible damage to your driveway.

Never Overload

Although concrete driveways are incredibly strong, durable, and robust, they are not typically poured to facilitate large, heavy, fully-loaded vehicles. At Stephens & Smith Construction Company, we advise our Lincoln homeowners never to overload their driveways, avoiding the potential damage that could leave your driveway looking unsightly with time.

Reseal Regularly

Our concrete contractors will typically use a sealant when we install a driveway. Over time, this sealant will wear away and will need to be reapplied. Be sure to speak to our Lincoln concrete team about how often your driveway should be resealed and to find out how we can help.

Repair Damage Quickly

Should your concrete driveway be damaged in any way or there is an oil or grease spill, be sure to remedy the issue right away to prevent staining or future damage. Resolving any issues you might have with your concrete driveway quickly will help you keep your driveway looking the very best. If you are unsure how to fix a problem, contact our concrete contractors for assistance and advice.
