Caulking Repair – Driveway Joints Cause Problems

If every home in Cincinnati had a solid caulking repair installed on their driveways there wouldn’t be so many concrete drives that look like roller coasters… a dip here and a hump there! This doesn’t have to happen and it really is a simple thing.

How many of you have taken the time to look closely at your concrete drive each year? Let’s be honest! How many of you actually  inspect the caulk joints between the individual driveway slabs? Go ahead raise your hands? See…? I thought so!

You know driveways are expensive to replace; lot’s of demolition, material and installation labor. Not to mention the associated headaches. Uggh! A simple caulk repair could prevent this, so it just makes sense to have a solid caulking repair done to your older driveway when it is needed. You’ll know if it is needed if you look at your driveway. You want to prevent all the rain that comes down throughout the year from running into the open joints in between the slabs. This causes the ground to settle beneath the slabs and over time the drive can heave and sink.

In the photo gallery below I explain how the caulk repair process works. It’s not too difficult. The primary component of a caulking repair is the new material placed into the old joints. Forget the box stores to locate the proper type of material to use for this repair. A masonry or concrete supply house will have what’s needed and will offer many differing types of caulking and control joint material. The material to use it what will work best depending on what the particular application is required for your caulking repair project.
