There are two main reasons you should consider driveway caulking. The first is to repair unsightly cracks before they get out of hand and the second is to ensure the expansion joints in your concrete are still sealed and working correctly.
When small cracks form in your driveway, you may overlook them for years until they could potentially become a problem. Instead of just avoiding the problem and allowing it to fill and drain with water over time and grow into a large crack, it is a good idea to talk to an expert about professionally caulking and sealing the crack. This will prevent water from getting into the crack and allowing it to expand and get worse over time.
If you have incorrectly sealed expansion joints in your driveway, patio, or sidewalk, it is important to have them cleaned and repaired with proper caulking to ensure they will not become a problem.
Where will I need caulking repair?
There are a few different places where driveway caulking will be needed. The first is at the expansion joints, the gaps between slabs of your driveway as well as where the driveway meets the street and where it meets the garage. The second is any location that may have been damaged or cracked. If you've got any spaces in your driveway that are open to water, they will be in need of caulking.
