Problems with concrete driveways

It’s important to play attention to your driveway, it’s the first thing people see when they arrive at your house after all! A combination of wear and tear and car on top of it can cause cracking.

Problems with concrete driveways

One of the primary problems with concrete driveways are prone to crack in extreme weather. This means that additional attention will need to be paid to constantly repairing the surface. Concrete driveways don’t cope well in the winter weather, your driveway soon will become an ice rink. 

A major problem with concrete driveways is that although they may be less prone to damage such as oil spillages, they tend to leave more visible stains than on any other driveway materials. As a result, a stunning new driveway can be ruined in seconds!

Despite the unrivalled, load-bearing properties of concrete driveways, their lack of substantial resistance makes them prime targets for surface spalling. Common signs of spalling include a broken, flaked appearance to the concrete, as well as visible pitting.

One obvious drawback of surface spalling is compromised aesthetics, but on a deeper level, you’re looking at much more serious defects that are hard to fix, such as permanent structural damage.


Ongoing maintenance problems with concrete driveways are another thing to consider. In Winter, many homeowners use de-icing salts, yet concrete reacts adversely to these measures.

Concrete driveways cost substantially less. When you factor its porous composition and cracking into the equation, you’re more than likely going to want to consider more resilient materials.
