Driveway Cracking? Don’t worry, a Building Inspection can tell you the real story…
Have you encountered any cracking in your driveway? On our Building Inspections we conduct all around Melbourne we find this quite a common occurrence and nothing to be alarmed for homeowners or potential buyers.
Our Building Inspection finds that the cracking is generally caused by the constant use of heavy vehicles, every day driving over the concrete and the construction of concrete being not strong enough to withstand its everyday use, i.e. the thickness can be minimal.
This generally will have no bearing for the structural integrity of the property and only maintenance is recommended to solve the problem. However, we will always recommend you monitor these cracks and if you do find they continue to widen, engage a concreter for further advice or feel free to contact us for a building inspection to determine the issue.
