Signs of Damage
Cracks are the first obvious sign of damage. They might be thin or thick. The more cracks are in your surface, the more in-depth repair will be necessary. You might even need to get a concrete replacement. Another major sign of damage to your concrete surface is potholes. If you have a pothole in your driveway, you are looking at some significant repair. Aged and/or weathered surfaces might just be in need of a touch-up, but the weathered appearance might be a sign that severe damage is around the corner. Check for drainage issues as well, as these are usually a sign of hidden damage.
Cause of Damage
You are probably wondering how concrete damage occurs, as it often occurs right under your nose. There are many things that could be causing your concrete damage. The number one cause of concrete damage is improper construction. Subpar contractors can make mistakes that result in damage down the line. Maybe they installed a faulty subbase or used an inadequate concrete mix when creating your driveway. Mistakes like this often result in damage down the line.
Another cause of concrete damage is simple wear and tear. Maybe you live in an area with lots of severe weather. Many severe thunderstorms over a long period of time can cause damage. Physical wear can also occur if surfaces are consistently overloaded. For example, if you squeeze two cars onto a one car driveway, this can wear down the surface over time until there is visible damage. Concrete surfaces also acquire damage over time. They might simply be damaged due to old age, especially if they are nearing 20 years.
