Your new driveway from J Lowther & Sons is fitted and looking pristine, but how to keep it that way for good?
Well, that’s the topic of our latest J Lowther & Sons blog! Driveway maintenance sounds like a time-consuming job but, if you keep a keen eye on it, it could save you both money and time in the long run…
Putting work into your driveway will only help your to increase your home’s value – a prospective buyer will see a poorly maintained driveway as indicative of a poorly maintained house, which is most certainly not what you want if your house is on the market or you’re looking to put yours on the housing market!
A house with a driveway already sees you have a 10% increase on your property’s estimated value. A private parking space, as averse to parking on the road is always seen as a must-have feature for first-time and new buyers onto the property ladder.
At J Lowther & Sons, we can provide two services that can help to maintain your driveway after we have completed your initial project. These are driveway resurfacing and driveway sealing/resealing.
The simplest way to keep on top of your driveway maintenance is by being proactive. Noticing small changes early such as cracks or stains can go a long way in extending your driveway’s lifespan.
Steps you can take without the need for professional help are activities such as intensive cleaning and trying to keep heavy vehicle usage to a minimum where possible.
It is important though to recognise when the best time to call in expert help is – the J Lowther & Sons are here to help whenever you might need us!
Bringing our team in for a driveway resurfacing is always when small signs of deterioration start to show as opposed to more significant damage occurring which may hamper your driveway’s existing foundations.
Driveway maintenance is all about targeting problem areas or in some cases purchasing upgrades. That’s where driveway sealing from J Lowther & Sons comes into play!
Driveway sealing/resealing should be something that you consider regularly, particularly when you think about the joys of British weather!
Dependant on the surface of your driveway, we would recommend having a driveway resealed every three to four years.
However, some customers prefer to book a resealing job every year to keep their investment in the best condition possible.
