Commercial Asphalt Maintenance Milwaukee and Racine County

Yorkville Asphalt Maintenance Before and After

Wisconsin Asphalt Maintenance Company Helps Your Pavement Last Longer

Asphalt maintenance is often over looked by property management. Proper maintenance is important for aesthetic purposes, saving on costly repairs, safety, and ROI. Our Asphalt Maintenance Company makes keeping your pavement in great condition easy by offering reliable services and making sure the job is done right every time we visit.

Asphalt maintenance encompasses a range of things, but most commonly:

You may be wondering why you should get your asphalt seal coated if you don’t care about the aesthetic aspect. The most important reason is PROTECTION. Your new asphalt starts the oxidation (or deterioration) process due to sunlight, water and other elements the moment it is laid. You can protect your asphalt and prevent the oxidation from happening so rapidly with a quality seal coat. This also allows protection from salt, gasoline, oil, UV rays and other damaging elements.

What is Asphalt Sealcoating? It is a process where coal tar emulsion (or asphalt emulsion) is professionally sprayed or brushed over your asphalts surface providing a protective and visually appealing coat.

Crack filling is typically necessary BEFORE seal coating and an important aspect of asphalt maintenance.

When oxidation occurs, the ground settles, or there was a fault in the base design – Your asphalt will crack. Once your asphalt cracks, exposure to water and elements is increased. This can lead to pot holes, larger scale cracking and asphalt depressions. In order to fill these cracks, your professional asphalt crack filler will pour a hot tar substance to fill and prevent further water penetration and damage. All debris is removed prior, and then the tar substance is squeezed into the cracks to fill and provide a temporary yet substantial fix.

Benefits of Asphalt Seal Coating before Winter

Racine County asphalt driveway 2

Asphalt sealcoating is a great method to increase the life of your asphalt surface. The harsh winter has damaging effects on your asphalt. Proper seal coating and maintenance will help to protect it and slow the oxidation effects of the freeze/thaw process.

Why should you Asphalt Sealcoat before Winter?

  • For drying of Asphalt Seal coating you need sun and at least 24 hours of dry weather
  • Sealcoat protects your asphalt from the penetration of unwanted moisture (namely snow and melting snow that can cause severe damage)
  • The sealcoat provides an extra layer of protection to slow the oxidation process the freeze/thaw of a Wisconsin Winter causes
  • Your asphalt will stay in the best possible condition and still look great in the spring when all the snow melts.

In Short: Proper pre-winter maintenance of your asphalt does the following for you: save money, slow oxidation, prevent water from penetration, and improve appearance.

The Benefits of Maintaining Your Asphalt

Crushing

Aesthetic Appeal

It is said that we don’t know what we have until it is lost. This is especially true of neatly paved roads. Anyone who has driven on dusty or gravelly surfaces will immediately feel the difference on their automobile and will be able to sense how much more comfortable and less damaging a well-paved surface is. The aesthetic difference is also marked, and this is a very big issue for homeowners who pride themselves on the presentable appearance of their home. An asphalt surface which is not maintained properly will show its signs of neglect for all to see.

Yet many people will neglect asphalt maintenance, conveniently forgetting that their pavement is covered in it at all until the damage is so great that they need to have their surfaces paved again altogether. The fact of the matter is that no man-made structure will last forever, no matter how tough it is. Remember that pavement and floors are constantly dealing with changes in weather, the weight of people and vehicles, and the simple wear caused by the environment. Asphalt is particularly prone to damage since the weight off the cars which pass through it is relatively immense compared to the beatings that other structures take on a daily basis. Our asphalt contractors will provide minor repair services, like crack filling, when performing maintenance on your driveway or parking lot.

Helps You Avoid Re-Paving Costs

Winter, especially in places where temperatures get close to the freezing point, is the natural enemy of asphalt and pavement. If there are any cracks, nooks, or holes in your pavement or asphalt, then the combination of water and freezing means that it’ll probably suffer severe repercussions from the freeze, which will leave you with a surface uncomfortable to treat upon by early spring. If you don’t do maintenance before winter, then you may likely have to pay for that in astronomical re-paving jobs soon after the snow begins to thaw. Since asphalt is best spread in heat, it is best to get the job done during the height of summer.

Asphalt Lasts Longer

This is not to say that winter is the only season where the asphalt is in danger. Heat also causes the slow reduction in the effectiveness of asphalt. As was mentioned before, asphalt is easiest to spread well when it is being baked in high temperatures, either artificially or by the sun. This means that very hot days may cause it to loosen slightly. This combined with the toll of car tires on the ground can lead to significant wear. The bottom line is that no matter where you live or what the issue is, asphalt will last longest if you maintain it regularly.

Especially if you live in a place where the winter cold is severe, you should strongly consider having preventative asphalt maintenance done regularly to ensure that you are saving on long-term costs. The price of having the whole thing re-done is very high compared to that of simply having a professional come to your house and look at the small weaknesses which can become big problems in winter months.

End of Season Asphalt Paving – Winter is Coming

Pre-Winter Asphalt Paving

Winter is, without a doubt, the most damaging season on an evenly paved surface. As you can imagine, the process of freezing and then thawing is not pleasant for any solid substance. Anything weaker than solid pavement can expect to be absolutely ravaged by the winter cold, sometimes even shattering altogether through the freeze-thaw process. Pavement, for all its toughness, is not immune to damage itself and can suffer significant wear and tear. This will be all the more pronounced if there are cracks or potholes in the ground to begin with.

One way in which to delay the effects of the ice on your hard surfaces is to pave it with asphalt. This must be done in its due time. If you wait too long and the ground gets too close to freezing temperatures, then the pavement process will not be as effective or maybe even not possible until next spring.

The reason for this is because of the nature of asphalt paving and the composition of asphalt itself. When a contractor comes to your house to straighten out the situation on the ground with asphalt, he will bring it very hot. Like frozen fish sticks, the colder a substance is, the more rigid it is. Heating it up has the opposite effect. Put food in the microwave and it will become totally supple and malleable, able to be easily cut apart even with an otherwise harmless plastic spoon whereas even trying to break it apart in a frozen state may not have been easy.

The same can be said for asphalt, and we are dealing here with similar extremes in temperature. When the asphalt arrives hot and it is poured all over your driveway, it is easy to spread evenly and leave the ground with that neat black sheen. Especially on a hot day, the asphalt will be soft and watery for a long time, losing its steaming heat very slowly. On the other hand, if the air and floor are very cold, the asphalt will cool down very quickly. This usually results in an ugly situation where it can’t be rolled easily or evenly and leaves you with a bumpy, unpleasant surface which will make you wish you had left it alone altogether and will be impossible to fix until temperatures fall again.

Now that autumn is rolling in, it is time for you to seriously consider getting this type of work done in preparation for the winter season. Let Asphalt Contractors Inc. pour your asphalt driveway before winter comes.

Importance of Quality Planning and Project Managing for your Asphalt Paving Project

Asphalt Paving with Road Rollers

An asphalt paving project isn’t a DIY project. It requires skills and expertise. It is a project that follows a strict step by step procedure. That is the reason why asphalt contractors always put a huge amount of focus on quality planning and project managing.

New driveways or parking lots are a value adding investment once it’s done properly. It’s always essential to have trustworthy and experienced asphalt contractors for your project.

From the very beginning of the process until it’s done, the best asphalt contractors will manage, plan, and complete your asphalt project with exceptional attention to detail while following a stringent process. Every part of the procedure is crucial to ensure ultimate quality work. They also protect your investment to ensure it does not turn into a pricey expense in the future.

Why Quality Planning and Project Managing Are Essential?

With every project, you need a solid plan before you begin installation of asphalt pavement. A good asphalt contractor will always plan your project to ensure that there’s no room for uncertainty. Planning starts with the materials needed and the dimensions of the area where asphalt will be installed. The measurements of the area are important to ensure that the project will be done properly.

After planning, the next step is preparation. The area will be marked properly and inspected to ensure there would be no lines or cables affected. Contractors will also work with you to ensure that everything is documented and you’re aware of the things that should be removed during the process. They will also mark the area clearly so there are no missing any areas that need to be noted.

What’s underneath your new asphalt is as vital as the new paving on the top. It is crucial not to lay the new asphalt atop soft ground and damaged under the layer asphalt. The reason is that this would cause future failures and cracks. It will also ensure all unusable materials are eliminated and only the quality materials are used for the long term life of the new asphalt in the area you’ll be paving.

Our experienced asphalt contractors will assess the base and be sure to use the processed and crushed solid materials or stones as a quality base. We have exceptional equipment, providing effective and efficient installation during the process. All of our equipment and materials are top of the line, and always tested for quality.

Once everything is laid smoothly, the new asphalt is now ready for finishing. Our asphalt contractors will give you better understanding about the process, so you’ll be able to know the step-by-step procedure and what you should and not do. We will keep you informed and in the loop.
