Despite some health issues, I’ve been trying to get caught up on home maintenance tasks. Luckily, I have a great guy in my life who is very helpful when it comes to these sorts of things. The two of us just finished up sealing our driveway last week.
Honestly, that particular maintenance task was not on my to-do list, I happened to stumble across a pin that led to a blog with tips on sealing your driveway, and boy did ours need it. The tips are great, easy to follow and they even gently remind you that the longer you leave cracks unattended in your driveway the quicker it will wear out. I went out and checked my driveway cracks, well, there were quite a few…oops.
So I got out of the house, visited a local hardware store and purchased all the supplies I needed: push broom, shop vac, bucket w/soap and water in it, stiff bristle brush, crack sealer, putty knife, some sort of barricade, plastic to cover nearby plants, and sealant. Then hubby and I got to work.
If you are thinking of sealing your driveway, you should read up on the blog that I used for hubby and I to get started on our own sealing project:
