Cratering in our Driveway Different from Every other Driveway in Development!
 
3 Attachment(s)


We live in a housing development with many townhouses and many driveways. We purchased new about 6 years ago. This thread will be based on included pictures I am guessing. I have two things going on now:

#1. The cratering of the concrete covers our entire driveway, the path to our door, and the sidewalk at the end of our very very short driveway. You can see small stones in the craters. If you go left OR right, none of the houses or driveways have this kind of damage/wearing---Why my concrete and no one else's?

#2. The proverbial rust stain left from a car AFTER the cratering problem. I would assume using a power-washer would just chip away more of my driveway, so I suppose I would be looking for more of a chemical solution that would not cause my driveway to deteriorate further.

Pictures show #1-closeup of cratering damage #2. Entire driveway and sidewalk...the cratering is nonexistent on both the left and right of picture. #3. The rust stain discussed (and the deterioration all in one)
