Asphalt Maintenance

You may wonder why you need to “maintain” your asphalt. As with any worthy investment, maintenance is necessary to keep the value and quality. No pavement material has ever been constructed that does not need maintenance. Keeping up with the maintenance before it becomes a NEED to fix can prevent costly repairs.

Asphalt maintenance keeps your pavement in full, quality service. There are several forms of basic maintenance that will keep your asphalt smooth and performing at its best long term:

Seal Coating

Seal Coating helps protect against oxidation and spills as well as maintains appearance. It is recommended to apply seal coating every 3-5 years. Keeping up with this application will prolong the life of your pavement indefinitely and avoid costly replacements.

Crack Sealing

Excessive weight, water damage or base failure can cause cracks in your asphalt pavement surface. We can repair these cracks easily with a hot pour mix, eliminating the need for a whole new asphalt layer placement. The hot crack sealer will provide a waterproof bond and is rubberized to allow support while the pavement expands and contracts in the changing of the seasons. If you allow cracks to go un-sealed, water will continue to travel into the base structure causing deeper damage that will deteriorate the base. Annual pavement crack inspection is recommended to avoid substantial repair costs long term.

Patching

If you experience significant damage or deterioration in an area of your asphalt pavement, removal and replacement of that specific area may be possible. It is necessary to check if the issue was caused by excessive ground water or poor soil conditions – in which case initial fixes should be applied before patching the area. Asphalt Contractors Inc. will evaluate, recommend and provide the best procedure for this form of maintenance.
