Why is My Driveway Cracked

Cracked sidewalks and other concrete related repairs can be fixed by Ground Up Foundation Repair.

A cracked and uneven driveway can be an eyesore, and also a tripping hazard for you and your family. Your driveway takes abuse from the weather and heavy traffic. There are many other reasons why your driveway may have cracks and has become sunk and uneven.

3 Reasons Why a Driveway Can Crack

  1. Weather

    • When the weather gets hot in the summer, along with summer thunderstorms, it can take a toll on your driveway. In the winter snow, ice, and freezing temperatures will also wear on your driveway. With the ever-changing weather patterns, it will cause concrete to expand and contract. This causes cracks.
  2. Water

    • Water also plays a big part in the expanding and contracting of concrete. Water settles into weak spots in the driveway, which causes them to deteriorate. The water will make small cracks bigger over time. Water also weakens the support underneath your driveway.
  3. Wear and tear

    • Because your driveway get a lot of traffic, over time your driveway will wear down.

These are a few of the reasons why driveways crack and become uneven over time. When this happens, it lowers the value of your home, becomes an eyesore, and can be a tripping hazard.
