Is It Time to Resurface My Driveway?

"Is it time to resurface my driveway?" A driveway is an investment, and every homeowner will eventually have to take steps to protect it.

If you've been seeing signs of wear and tear and are wondering whether this is the right time to resurface your driveway, this post will help you make the right decision.


Due to exposure to the elements and frequent usage, there'll inevitably be cracks in your driveway.

Those cracks may seem harmless, but as time goes on, they'll begin to expand and link with each other. When you notice these cracks, contact a professional to resurface your driveway.


Aside from marring the appearance of your driveway, potholes have the potential to damage your vehicle and impact the driveway's integrity.

It's important to fix your potholes as they can worsen and grow deeper and wider if left unattended to.

Faded color

Fading driveway color does not affect the functionality of your driveway and poses no danger to your vehicles.

However, it's an indicator that your driveway is aging, and it's only a matter of time for other issues to appear. Moreover, a faded color will reduce your home's curb appeal.

Uneven areas

If you notice that rain water doesn't run off properly, leading to puddles in some areas, it indicates that your driveway is uneven.

If not quickly fixed, the pool of water can damage your driveway, costing you more money to repair.

Your driveway is more than 15-20 years old

Depending on maintenance, usage, and other factors, your driveway may still be in fairly good condition after 15 years.

However, resurfacing it can extend its lifespan and help you avoid spending more on replacement.

If you notice any of the issues above, the time has come to resurface your driveway. Delaying can lead to more expensive repairs.
