Over time, all pavement structures start to exhibit signs of failure causing cracks and potholes. If not properly maintained or repaired, they easily may worsen or become more widespread. Pavements fail for many reasons. Whether it’s a lack of gravel base, insufficient thickness, poor drainage or a combination of these, our asphalt repair team can mill the asphalt, remove & replace, or overlay the damaged area. The result is a smooth, permanent repair.
The first step in asphalt maintenance is to seal cracks in your asphalt. Asphalt cracks should be repaired as they appear or at a minimum once a year. Crack sealing is the most important first step in maintaining an asphalt pavement but is often the most overlooked. All cracks in asphalt surfaces can rapidly turn into major hazards.
Water seeps into the subsurface; it freezes, thaws, and refreezes causing the subsoil to expand and contract. Soon the area around the crack rapidly deteriorates and your little crack turns into a pothole. What could have been a small asphalt maintenance step has turned into a costly repair project.
To ensure a long-lasting asphalt repair we use hot crack filler by SealMaster. It is a rubberized asphalt crack and joint sealant that is applied hot. It is the best in the industry because it is heat stabilized and withstands temperatures up to 450°F without experiencing degradation.
If your pavement is still in fairly decent shape, you may be able to get away with just a surface patching. Surface patching is when we repair only small parts of your asphalt. When done the right way, patching can help prevent further deterioration and extend the life of your driveway, road, or parking lot.
Do you have too many potholes or cracks in your asphalt pavement to count? Have you forgotten to maintain your driveway or parking lot over the years? Don’t fret. Our asphalt removal and replacement experts are here to help. Sometimes simple, patching repairs are not enough. If your asphalt parking lot can no longer be refurbished, it’s time for replacement.
