Common Signs Your Driveway Needs Repair

Are you questioning the health of your driveway? Visible signs such as cracks, sinking, or heaving in your concrete aren’t to be ignored.

Such issues signal that your driveway is in distress and requires immediate attention. Don’t hesitate to seek professional assistance, as these problems can quickly escalate if not addressed promptly.


When you notice cracks appearing in your driveway, it’s a signal that it may be time to bring in the professionals. Keeping your driveway crack-free is vital to maintaining its structural soundness. A range of repair methods are available, tailored to the extent of the damage.

Prompt repairs can halt further decline and ensure your driveway’s long-term upkeep. While tackling the job yourself might seem tempting, it may not offer the same long-lasting results as professional services.

Sinking Concrete

Cracks in your driveway may be worrisome, but there’s another issue you shouldn’t ignore – sinking concrete. This often happens due to soil erosion or inadequate compaction when the driveway was installed. As the soil underneath your driveway erodes, it can lead to compaction problems, causing your concrete to sink.

This can cause water damage from pooling and serious safety issues, such as tripping hazards and potential harm to your vehicle. If not addressed, these problems can get worse over time, leaving your driveway both unsafe and unattractive.


Noticing an upward movement or lift in your concrete driveway? This is a sign of what we call ‘heaving’, and it’s a clear sign that your driveway requires some attention. This lifting often results from soil expansion. 

Here’s how it works: the soil beneath your driveway can absorb water and expand, pushing your driveway upward and leading to uneven surfaces. Things like poor drainage could make this situation worse, allowing more water to penetrate the soil. Even tree roots can contribute to the problem by pushing your driveway upwards.

Uneven surfaces aren’t just unpleasant to look at – they can also be a serious safety risk, increasing the chances of trips and falls. It’s important to deal with these issues as soon as you spot them to prevent further damage. Don’t wait until someone trips over these hazards. Take action now to preserve the functionality and aesthetic appeal of your driveway.

FAQ About Concrete Driveway Repairs

Driveway damage can be caused by a variety of factors including weather conditions (like extreme temperatures and rainfall), poor drainage, substandard installation, heavy vehicle use, tree root growth, and general wear and tear over time.

This depends on the extent of the damage and the type of repair. Simple repairs like filling cracks or sealing can be done in a day, whereas more extensive repairs or resurfacing might take several days.

Small repairs like filling cracks or holes can often be a DIY project. However, for more significant repairs, resurfacing, or if the driveway requires structural repairs, it’s advisable to hire a professional. They will have the right tools, materials, and expertise to ensure the job is done correctly.

Regular maintenance includes keeping the driveway clean, sealing cracks as soon as they appear, ensuring good drainage, applying a concrete sealer every few years, and avoiding heavy loads. Regular inspections can also help catch issues early.

This depends on the scope of the work. Simple repairs usually don’t require permits, but more extensive changes, especially those that alter drainage or involve significant structural changes, might require permits. It’s best to check with your local council or contact us.

Melbourne’s variable weather, with its hot summers and wet winters, can cause expansion and contraction in driveway materials, leading to cracks and other damage. Proper installation and regular maintenance can mitigate these effects.

I can highly recommend Smooth Concrete, and, in particular Luke who owns the business. Our customer ( one of Australia's top 5 commercial property owners) had very strict rules and documentation regarding access to the site plus a very limited window of opportunity during each week to get the job completed. In trying to meet the customer's requirements the job had to be postponed several times (with only a day's notice on occasion) but Luke was tremendous in being able to accomodate all these last minute changes. He was totally professional in the way he re arranged things to suit our customer. When we finally got everything lined up to start the job the weather became threat however Luke and his team were able to get the job done way quicker than expected thus avoiding any weather issues. Also, on the day Luke's team found an issue with some broken kerb and called immediately suggesting we replace it. We got great feedback from that initiative. In addition the customer was extremely pleased with the quality of the job and the way in which the Smooth Concrete team conducted themselves. Bob Dusting Proprietor Viscount Property Services

As an architect I am always looking not for great tradespeople but outstanding ones and Smooth Concrete did not disappoint. We had a very difficult project that required enormous coordination and a finish no less than excellent and Smooth Concrete delivered. Luke was a pleasure to deal with and no request was too difficult. Not only was i impressed but the client was overwhelmed. Cant wait to work with the team again and to explore all of the other skills and services they can provide. I would highly recommend them for any project requiring a high quality finish.

I highly recommend Smooth Concrete. Luke was very quick to contact me after my online enquiry to have old concrete removed from my backyard and new concrete for an outdoor entertaining area. He was very easy to discuss this with to plan it out and make suggestions that would help me save on the overall cost. Luke and his team were very efficient and kept the place clean. They did a great job!! Very happy. Thank you.

STUNNING OUTCOME Luke and his Smooth Concrete team did an amazing job at our house. We had a badly lifting patio that required levelling. Luke and I discussed the plan I had in mind and he confidently provided feedback which made me comfortable in proceeding with the project. Luke was friendly and offered a creative solution to our problem. Luke’s team then efficiently and professionally completed the required work. What made this such a stunning job was Luke mentoring and providing guidance to his team. This detail alone lifted the project from ‘just a job to be done’ to ‘a complete and professional product.’ A team that cares about their work seems rare in this day and age but Luke took the time to pass on his knowledge. Top marks. A tremendous result that far exceeded our expectations. We would have no hesitation in recommending Luke and his team for any concreting work that needs to be carried out
Smooth Concrete were awesome ! Not only were they professional, hardworking and thorough, they were also friendly. Luke explained the process of the job very clearly to us and went above and beyond to meet our expectations. Luke also gave us a suggestion to add glow stone which we did and looks awesome at night. We would recommend them for any job as they were reliable and generous with time and skill. Thanks again Smooth Concrete
