Professional Driveway Repairs in Leeds, Bradford and Harrogate
Replacing your driveway is perhaps the last thing on your mind. But if you have a tired and worn driveway, you may think replacement is the only solution. Think again! Our driveway repairs specialists in Leeds can restore your driveway to its former glory.
Let’s take a look at some of the common driveway repair and replacement options.
Over the years a driveway may begin to sink either owing to poor soil compaction, environmental factors or erosion. The sinking can create an uneven, unsightly transition between the garage and driveway.
Our driveway repair specialists in Bradford will dig out the sunken portion of your driveway and install a new layer of asphalt (apron). Your driveway and garage will be levelled but you will find a visible seam along the edges of the new layer. Alternatively, we can install the apron using concrete or pavers.
Driveway cracks are usually the result of water seeping into the surface, which then freezes and expands. Even constant exposure to the sun can dry unsealed asphalt, contributing to cracking. If cracks are left unchecked for a long time, chunks of asphalt may break off forming a pothole. Small cracks can be easily repaired with spot treatments and seal coating.
If there are too many cracks on the driveway, it’s a sign that the driveway surface is too thin, is sinking in some areas or the sub-layer was not laid evenly. In such cases its best to install a new driveway.
Skip Bin Damage
If you have rented a skip bin in the past for house cleaning or renovation, your driveway may be left with cosmetic damage or some heavy dents. If your driveway was constructed on a poor sub-base, it won’t take much to damage it.
If the damage is mostly cosmetic or minor, hot-patching or cold-patching can help restore your driveway to its former glory.
If there are large trees near your driveway, their roots could damage your driveway. Root damage typically looks like cracked, raised bumps on the driveway. This not only looks unsightly but the bumps can create a trip and fall hazard.
Repairing typically involves removing the invasive roots which could put the tree at risk. If that is out of the question, then our driveway repairs team in Harrogate can fill the cracks.
