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.

Resurfacing involves applying a new layer of concrete over your existing driveway, effectively hiding any minor cracks or flaws. This not only rejuvenates the appearance of your driveway but also extends its lifespan and improves its durability.

We even offer decorative options to add an extra touch of class to your property. Furthermore, we provide guidance on maintenance to help ensure your driveway remains in excellent condition.

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.
