3 Top Asphalt Paving & Sealing Tips
Water can damage asphalt like nothing else, and keeping water off the pavement prevents cracking and breaking down over time. The only way to ensure pavement stays dry is with the right drainage, which includes the slope of the pavement but also drainage ditches or concrete drainage systems.
Cracks appear in pavement due to many reasons, including water penetration, sun damage, and physical wear. These conditions can make those cracks get wider and wider until they’ve affected the structural integrity of your pavement. Preventing this is as simple as getting crack sealing services when the cracks are less than 1/4 inch wide.
Is there a way to keep cracks and water damage from happening? That would be a protective sealant over the entire asphalt pavement surface, called a sealcoating. Getting a sealcoating is cheaper than replacing an entire parking lot, and it can put resurfacing off for years.
