Why A Property Would Need Asphalt Driveway Repaving

Repaving your asphalt driveway can be a lifesaver when facing signs of degraded surface material. While there are many ways to approach repair, some situations require an entirely new top layer to take care of all the issues.

Understanding these signs will help you take care of any concerning problems. Read on to find out more about this service and how to make note of when you need it.

Alligator Cracking

This is a common issue that forms a series of winding, jagged cracks that resemble the skin patterns of the famed reptile. When you see these forms, it means you need to repair your drive space by installing a newer layer on top of the older material. 

Unlike your usual hairline cracks, these cannot simply be filled in and fixed as they show a deeper issue in the lower material. You will need to remove the degraded material to ensure the issue is resolved.

Sunken Paving

Consistent sections of sunken pavement are indicative of the need for urgent repairs. It is more evident when you notice pooling water or puddles. Your paving has likely begun to weaken and is no longer durable. Divots and impressions in paved areas can form when heavy loads are repeatedly left standing in the space. This is also why these issues are usually seen in parking areas and entryways onto properties. The degraded spaces need to be fixed before more problems develop.

Cracks And Potholes

When deep cracks and potholes form, it is a sign of a more significant, underlying problem. The material will start to degrade in a way that reduces the integrity of the surface, breaking down more and more over time. When these issues form, you can also create dangerous situations for both pedestrians and cars riding along the roadway. These can easily cause flat tires and rim damage.

Standing Water

Whether it’s stormwater or draining liquids, cracks and divots give these elements a place to collect. When buildup occurs, more erosion and damage occur in a shorter period of time. Standing water needs to be taken care of immediately before it causes more damage, and puddling liquid means that there is probably underlying damage that has weakened the structure of the material below.

Being aware of the signs that you need to call out the professionals for repaving asphalt driveway services can help you save time and money.
