No matter what type of driveway you have, it will occasionally need repairing. After all, it does take a constant battering from wind, rain, snow and cars. Sometimes your repair might be as small as a pothole, but sometimes, the structural integrity of your driveway itself might be damaged, in which case you might need more drastic repairs. Concrete is a very common material used for making driveways, and whilst it is very sturdy, and should last a long time, there are some factors that might cause it to need to be replaced or repaired, such as poor initial installation or damage caused by the weather.

Does my concrete driveway need repairing?
Concrete is extremely durable and sturdy, and can stand the test of time better than most other materials. However, it isn’t completely invincible, and will need some help from masons like us occasionally. One of the biggest reasons that your concrete driveway might need repairing is the weather. If there has been a big storm or hail shower recently, it might have caused obvious or not so obvious structural damage to your driveway. Another reason, as obvious as it may seem, is just time. Over time, the constant pressure on your driveway might lead it to get potholes, cracks or break in pressure spots.
Can I repair my own driveway?
Driveway repair by anyone who is not a professional is probably not a good idea. Whilst the actual repair is not dangerous, a bad job can lead to structural damage and bigger problems in the future. Some early warning signs are obvious, but in most cases you need a professional to see what is wrong with your driveway and fix any root causes. Trying to fix your driveway alone or with a poor quality contractor could be dangerous and lead to even bigger problems in future – it’s just not worth the risk.
