The goal in our asphalt repair services is always to provide a finish that’s going to last a considerable amount of time. Even if that means doing more extensive repairs at a certain point in time. We feel that this idea that asphalt surfaces require an excessive amount of maintenance comes from people and companies agreeing to multiple lower scale repairs rather than large repairs that can get the job done right. We want to take a chance here to explore this duality. To hopefully help you figure out what type of repair service will fit your needs best.
Common Asphalt Issues
Some of the more common asphalt issues include cracks and potholes. These are things that you could see more commonly in roads. This is usually due to the use of those roads by heavy-duty vehicles. This means that usually, potholes are not going to be common occurrences in surfaces such as driveways. They are things though that we are going to want to watch out for. Those are basically the most common problems that we are going to be facing or we are going to see on different surfaces. If you need help with these types of situations be sure to give us a call.
The Repair Process
We usually have a process that we follow to be able to provide repairs to different surfaces. What we are going to want to do is come in and evaluate the situation. At the very least we need to give the area a walk through to make sure that we can spot all of the potential issues. If any area needs particular attention we’ll focus on that first. These repairs can be things like filling up potholes or even removing asphalt from that area to be able to expose the original terrain to even that out before we lay down the new asphalt coating.
How Often Should Asphalt Be Repaired
Repairs and regular maintenance are two different things. You should be looking to repair your asphalt when you have a major issue. A crack that just keeps forming in the same spot or a pothole that is considerably large. If you don’t have these types of problems it can still be a good idea to look into a yearly maintenance service. Just to make sure that everything is running smoothly and you have nothing to worry about.
At What Moment During The Year Should You Repair Asphalt?
Again this is one of those things that when you have a problem you should look into having it repaired seemingly regardless of what time of the year it is. Now, it is going to be harder for an asphalt repair to stick if you keep getting a lot of rain on the surface and of course if you don’t allow the new surface to settle in. A good time of year could be hot summer days or any other time of the year when we know that there is not going to be a lot of rain.
