Your asphalt is tough stuff. When you pave with this material, you’re getting a durable surface. That doesn’t mean you can ignore your pavements, though. As durable as asphalt is, it still has an expiry date.
So, how often do you need asphalt paving services? Let’s unpack the question!
Read the Signs
Winters in the northeastern USA are punishing and summers are scorching. The climate here and extremes of temperature can cause a lot of wear on your asphalt.
Being vigilant about changes in the integrity of your pavements is key to understanding the timing of asphalt paving services. Look for signs like:
- Drainage problems
- Minor cracks
- Sinking or warping
- Major cracks (which become potholes, sooner or later)
What Types of Services?
If you’ve identified any of the foregoing signs that your asphalt paving needs a little TLC, then it’s important to understand the types of services you need.
Minor cracks, for example, don’t add up to a total re-paving job. Parking Lot Armor provides the full range of asphalt paving services, from cosmetic repair to preventative measures. But we’ll repave your pavements if it’s required.
Your next move is to give us a call so we can come out to assess the condition of your pavements. From there, we talk to you about the best way to keep your asphalt paving in top condition.
Caring for Your Pavements
Nothing lasts forever – not even durable asphalt. Sooner or later, there’s going to be damage. But you can care for your pavements to avoid total replacement.
One way to extend the life of your paved areas is with sealcoating. This process renews the appearance of your pavements, while protecting them from water incursion. Part of that is nipping minor cracks in the bud before they become big uglies.
Sealcoating is most effective when done every 2 or 3 years. If you do it more often, the material used may be subject to cracking and peeling. Sometimes, Parking Lot Armor will recommend a seal in between your regularly scheduled ones. This is usually in the event of extensive damage.
Caring for your pavements also means understanding that minor problems can become major ones if they’re not attended to as they arise. Get those minor cracks filled before they grow into potholes.
