Winter has arrived suddenly, and summer seems like a distant memory now. The colder days are slowly but surely approaching us. Even though winter weather can be enchanting, it can also pose a significant danger. During frosty conditions, the roads and driveways are likely to be covered in snow and ice, which can make them unsafe. Therefore, it is crucial to take good care of your driveway over the winter months by providing it with some extra TLC.
Apply Grit or Salt
During the winter season, applying salt to your resin bound driveway is an effective way of preventing the formation of ice. Furthermore, using salt on your resin driveway can help melt any ice or frost that has already formed without causing any harm to the resin driveway's surface. This method not only makes your driveway safer to walk or drive on, but also keeps it clean and visually appealing throughout the winter period.
Remove Excess Snow
If your driveway is covered with snow or ice, you can safely use a plastic spade to clear it up. This is particularly easy with a resin driveway, as there are no loose stones or cobbles. Be careful not to use a metal spade as it can cause damage to your resin surface and create additional mess. The force of the metal can also dig into the surface of your driveway. So, it's always a good idea to use a plastic spade for clearing snow or ice from your resin driveway.
Remove Moss, Weeds and Dirt
As an overall maintenance routine, removing excess dirt and any weeds will ensure that cracks do not begin to appear as the change in temperature causes the natural expansion and contraction of the driveway.
