Asphalt as a paving material can be easily maintained and affordably repaired. Asphalt repairs extend the usable life of a parking lot or driveway and improve their appearance. Because asphalt paving has a lifespan of about 30 years, regular preventative maintenance, including patching and sealcoating, will extend the life of the surface.
Proper maintenance of asphalt paving is important. Potholes, cracks and sinkholes are common. Potholes develop when water seeps into cracks in the pavement. The water freezes, expands and enlarges the crack. When the ice under the pavement melts, the surrounding pavement falls into the void causing the hole. Tree roots and heavy traffic can also cause asphalt surfaces to fail requiring repairs to maintain the integrity of the pavement.
When asphalt paving has deteriorated, timely repair is essential to prevent further damage to the surface. New asphalt can be easily removed, replaced with new material and bonded to the existing pavement.
The first step is to cut and remove or mill down the damaged asphalt. The damaged material is removed and recycled. Hot asphalt mix is used to complete the repair and is compacted with either a vibratory plate or roller.
Crack repair and crack sealing is a regular part of asphalt maintenance. Depending on the size of the cracks, hot asphalt or cold-pour rubberized filler is used to prevent water from seeping through the cracks and causing further damage. This type of repair is typically completed prior to sealcoating the entire parking lot.
