Your residential asphalt paving might need retouching, repairs or replacement. As these surfaces are exposed to the elements and vehicles, they can accumulate many factors that can cause damage quickly or over time. As such, you must maintain these spaces and take note of potential signs that you could need work done. Weather conditions, both hot or cold, vehicles products like motor oil, solvents or fuel, and many other components could all cause damage to the space and degrade the surface without the proper maintenance routine in place. Read on to learn more about the signs you need to be looking out for.
The expected lifetime of these surfaces to be around 10 to 15 years before any signs of deterioration should be seen. Anything before that time could be considered early or unnatural wear and tear. Several elements can cause this, but when you notice damage long before it should be expected, be sure to call us for assistance.
Dips And Potholes
Dips and potholes can be efficiently and effectively fixed when they appear, but they need to be repaired as soon as possible as they could cause untold damage to cars using the space over time. These often start small and manageable but can quickly turn into a significant issue if not managed right.
Aged asphalt will take on a much duller appearance, picking up a grey colour and beginning to wear through the surface layer. When this happens, it is time to replace your old and degraded paved surface with something that can last you the next decade.
Cracks that are less intrusive and have not made it through the surface layer should be repaired before spreading deeper. If water freezes and expands in a break, it will become more pronounced, broader, and likely to cause issues. These can cause damage throughout the space as they form in small pockets across the surface. These can be managed when small, but they can get more and more challenging to maintain as they grow.
