ONE-STOP SOLUTION FOR QUALITY ASPHALT SERVICES
When it comes to asphalt maintenance, you want to make sure that the job is done right the first time. For this, you need to work with an experienced team otherwise you may have to deal with additional repair costs sooner than you think.
Here are a few tips on how to care for your asphalt pavement investment by creating a regular asphalt maintenance schedule so that you have a better idea of what is involved.
Sealcoating should never be considered as something that is optional. Instead, you should include it as a part of a comprehensive maintenance program for your pavement. The main reason to perform asphalt sealing is to extend the life of your pavement investment. When labourers sealcoat asphalt car parks, the investment that the business has already made in the original pavement is already significant.
Even under fair weather and temperature conditions and with the best installation practices having been used to install the asphalt pavement, it will still deteriorate over time. That is because pavement begins to break down immediately after it is constructed and there is nothing that can be done to prevent this.
As a result, anything that contractors can do to slow the deterioration of the payment will greatly improve your life-cycle costs of your payment investment. Sealcoating protects your pavement because on its own asphalt payment offers poor resistance to the UV radiation of the sun.
Constant exposure to sunlight causes oxidation in the pavement, resulting in the pavement losing its plasticity. Over time, the oxidation causes water molecules to become attracted to the pavement which further deteriorates the surface by increasing the temperature of the payment and causing cracks. Pavement also dries out overtime as oils leave the pavement, resulting in the formation of small cracks.
While the main reason to sealcoat your pavement is because you want to extend the life of your asphalt pavement, sealcoating also makes it easier to keep your pavement clean given that it is a smoother surface. You’ll find that sweeping up dust and debris from sealcoated asphalt pavement is much easier than untreated pavement.
However, it is important to note that sealcoating isn’t the only task that needs to be performed. In fact, sealcoating has limits to what it can do and should be used in conjunction with other maintenance practices, such as asphalt pavement and fixing potholes.
If you have an area that has become damaged as a result of a pothole, this area will need to be filled before sealcoating takes place if you want the sealcoating to be highly effective. In addition, cracks also need to be filled in because sealcoating is not designed to act as a filler for cracks.
WHEN TO PERFORM ASPHALT MAINTENANCE
In general, seal coating does help to improve the look of asphalt pavement. As a result, seal coating should be performed every year or two. When it comes to potholes and cracks, these should be filled as soon as they begin to form. By addressing asphalt pavement tasks on a regular schedule, you can avoid having minor issues turn it costly repairs, which is what will absolutely happen over time if the issues are left unaddressed.
