Benefits of Resurfacing My Driveway

Updated: Jun 16

Resurfacing will give your driveway a shiny, brand-new look, among other benefits. Let’s look at some of them.


Increases the durability of your driveway

A well-installed driveway can last for about 30 years. After that, deterioration begins to set in. But that doesn’t have to be the case. Resurfacing can extend the life of your driveway beyond 30 years.


Improves your home’s curb appeal

Driveways are a big part of how your home looks. Regardless of how well-designed and beautiful your home looks, a shabby driveway can mar its appearance.


On the other hand, a clean, shiny driveway will complement the beauty of the home, making it more attractive. Resurfacing can get you the rejuvenated appearance that makes passers-by stare at your home in admiration.



Prevention of oversealing

While sealing is a maintenance program that can extend the lifespan of your driveway, there’s the risk of oversealing. Too much sealing can result in the cracking of your driveway’s surface.


However, resurfacing covers your driveway with a fresh asphalt layer, which can be sealed later for added durability.


Saves money

Resurfacing can fill small cracks and crevices, preventing them from deteriorating into bigger damages that’ll cost more to repair.


Also, a new driveway installation will take a toll on your finances. Instead, you can opt for resurfacing. And if your driveway handles heavy traffic daily, you just have to resurface it every few years, saving you lots of money.


Improved safety

Asphalt can cause injuries when it has cracks and depressions and begins to disintegrate. Resurfacing helps restore the structural integrity of your driveway, making it safe for everyone.
