Poured concrete for driveways and sidewalks should always include expansion joints. These joints allow for expansion and contraction during the freeze and thaw cycle. But while expansion joints provide important outlets for stress, they also allow potential openings for water penetration.
The most common type of driveway caulking is made from polyurethane. This flexible caulking allows for the concrete to expand and contract, but seals each joint to prevent water from getting through.
At Thrasher, we use a more advanced silicone caulking. Silicone caulking has all the waterproofing benefits of traditional polyurethane caulking, but is more durable, flexible, and UV resistant – making silicone the best driveway caulking material available. Without water penetration through cracks and expansion joints, the soil under your concrete driveway is protected against erosion and washout – the two main causes of cracked, heaved and uneven driveways and sidewalks.
