Concrete driveways and sidewalks can withstand a lot of years and wear and tear; however, in some instances concrete can still crack and breakdown.
When a new sprinkler system or landscape lighting is installed, oftentimes there is a need to pass under the driveway or sidewalks. The installers use the force of water to clear a path under the concrete to be able to pass their PVC pipes, wires and other necessary materials under the concrete driveways and sidewalks. Once installed, nothing can be detected on the surface of the drive, but a large void may be created during the installation process due to the water forcing sand and dirt out of the way. Once a heavy delivery truck or vehicle pass over or park on that void, over time, the concrete is likely to crack, or even cave in. Once water has a chance to seep down into the base of the driveway or sidewalk, it is only a matter of time that the concrete starts to crumble, crack and fall apart leaving your driveway or sidewalk in a crumbled, uneven mess.
Tree roots can also have a detrimental affect on concrete sidewalks and driveways too. As a tree grows, so does the root system. Pushing through soil and moving dirt and other materials out of its growth path, the root system can eventually lift a concrete sidewalk or crack and make a concrete driveway uneven. As more time passes, the tree roots will take the path of least resistance. Once cracks in the concrete are made, the root system can easily expand by heaving the concrete up and out of its way. This makes for an uneven sidewalk and driveway, which can be hazardous to pedestrians and problematic for vehicular traffic as well.
