Opt for Quality Asphalt Paving Repairs
Regardless of how many options are available, quality asphalt paving remains a very popular choice for parking lots, walkways, and roadways due to its modern and attractive appearance and economical price. Also, a properly installed asphalt should remain for a long time provided it receives proper maintenance and timely repairs. Because eventually, all asphalt installations are going to have more than one or two cracks repaired. Knowing when to resurface, sealcoat or repave can help you save a not so insignificant amount of money.
Asphalt resurfacing means that the contractor will apply a brand new layer of asphalt directly on top of an existing pavement. The potholes or cracks also need to be repaired first to avoid deterioration beneath the new asphalt. This would also prevent any damages from showing through the surface. Additionally, your pavement’s foundation should also be in good condition. Asphalt resurfacing should only be done if there is a 25 to 50 percent damage to the asphalt’s surface.
Asphalt sealcoating should be applied at least three months after the asphalt is installed. And depending on the loads and traffic your asphalt is subjected to, you’ll need to have a fresh coat applied every 3 to 4 years. Sealcoating can defend your asphalt from UV radiation, vehicle fluids, and deicing chemicals. If your asphalt’s color has faded, sealcoating will bring that deep, rich dark color of newly applied asphalt.
Asphalt repaving involves removing the entire old pavement, rebuild the foundation, and install the new asphalt. It’s a very expensive repair option and takes a lot of time to complete. If your asphalt’s foundation and the surface have suffered extreme damage, repaving might be your only option.
