What causes cracks in a concrete driveway?
When you have a surface that is being consistantly driven on by vehicles and trucks weighing thousands of pounds, it is going to deteriorate after many years. Other external factors can also cause damage to a driveway. A lesser known object of destruction, are tree roots. Over time the roots grow outward from close trees, shifting the soil below the concrete, or working their way up to the surface to push their way through. And of course on the biggest factors in the condition of concrete, is the changing of the seasons. Depending on the climate that year, water can settle and freeze in or around concrete, causing small cracks. If left unchecked, the cracks and crevices in the concrete can become larger, and creating the need for a larger repair.
