Improve Your US Home’s Curb Appeal With Driveway Expansion Joints

Your driveway is a key part of your home’s curb appeal. If the old, wooden expansion joints are rotting and full of weeds, it makes a bad first impression. If you’d like to change that, PVC plastic driveway expansion joint sealers are the way to go. They’re easy to install, last for many years, and look great.

The hardest part of improving the look of your driveway is getting the old wooden slats out. You’ll need to begin digging out the old wood at each end of the slab, being careful not to damage the slabs. Once that’s done, you’ll simply cut the strips of plastic expansion joints with garden shears, and press them into the gaps. An average-sized driveway can be done in less than a day.

Before you begin, you’ll need to determine the width you need; the strips come in widths ranging from 1/2″ to 1 3/8″. Also, PVC plastic expansion joint strips come in gray, black, and brown. Gray and black look great on plain concrete, and brown looks good on tinted or aggregate slabs. Plastic concrete expansion joints are also perfect for patios, pool decking, and sidewalks.

Unlike caulk, these neat, rubbery expansion joint strips won’t drip onto your clothes or hands. You simply press it in once you get the old, rotten wood out. Plastic driveway expansion joint sealer strips are the fastest, easiest, and most economical way to fix rotting wooden concrete expansion joints.
