Concrete cracks really detract from your home's appearance. Like piles of leaves
clogging your house's gutters
, concrete cracks suggest a lack of homeowner
love. There's also a safety factor: you could take a tumble on uneven concrete. Consider putting concrete repair
on your Spring things-to-do list. For anyone planning to sell a home
within the next few months, put this on your must-do list!
Not sure where to start? Never fear. It's actually extremely easy to patch cracks in your driveway
, your garden
path, or on the pavement outside your home. First, consider when to tackle this job. The best time is Spring or Summer. Don't do it when you're expecting rain or freezing weather.
Newsflash for beginner DIY'ers: these days, you don't
fill cracked concrete with more concrete. There are better products on the market that are easier to use. In particular, many patching products now contain latex. This adds flexibility and, therefore, added durability, in extremes of hot and cold weather.
