Your house is not only your home, but it’s also your largest investment and most valuable possession. Maintaining your home’s curb appeal not only maintains its value but also increases your pride in ownership. Simply put, concrete expansion joints overgrown with grass and weeds are unsightly. Fortunately, this unsightly situation can be easily fixed in one afternoon.
Typically, driveways and patios are laid with wooden concrete expansion joints. As you know, over time, wood will decay. As this decay occurs, grass and weeds begin to sprout up. Replacing rotting wood slats with new wood is very difficult. But, there is an easier, longer-lasting option. Expansion joints made of rubber-like plastic are easy to install and can last for many years.
Plastic expansion joints come in various widths, as well as three different colors, black, brown, and concrete gray. This upgrade gives your driveway or patio a clean, modern look. While gray blends with your concrete slabs, using brown or black strips can create a one-of-a-kind look.
The hardest part of replacing your old, rotting, wooden expansion joints is removing them. But, once the old wooden slats are out, you’ll simply firmly press in the new plastic expansion joints. The plastic is easily trimmed with garden shears. Once done, weeds and grass growing in your driveway will be a thing of the past. As a result, your curb appeal is instantly improved, and it will last for many years.
