Asphalt Paving FAQs
What is asphalt made of?
Asphalt is a composite material with aggregates (gravel or sand) suspended in a dark black petroleum product called bitumen with liquid plastic additives. It’s liquid at high temperatures but cures to a flexible hard surface as it cools.
How does asphalt break down?
Though it’s durable, asphalt can break down over time. Sunlight can leech important chemicals from the surface, which creates cracks, and then those cracks fill with water that expands as it freezes to widen cracks. If left untreated, the entire pavement structure can deteriorate.
Which asphalt repair services are available?
Your trusted local paving company can fill asphalt cracks with commercial grade fillers to seal them over and prevent widening. They can also cut out and replace damaged pavement, as well as pour a new top layer over the whole asphalt surface if damage is too extensive.
What are pavement maintenance services?
There are ways to prevent asphalt pavement deterioration before it starts. The most cost effective is asphalt sealcoating, which coats the entire top layer of the pavement with a protective coating that protects it from sun and water damage.
