Many business owners have found themselves faced with a need to perform asphalt repairs on their property. Like any other surface, asphalt can deteriorate over time without proper maintenance. Other factors that can ultimately lead to potholes include overall wear and tear, as well as, poor drainage.
When it comes to maintaining a car park, asphalt repair and patching is an essential part of proper asphalt maintenance to ensure that your investment continues to last for many years. If a pothole has developed, it is beneficial to perform the repair while the asphalt is overall in a fair or good condition in order to avoid it turning into a much larger repair, such as having to replace the entire surface of the car park.
Here is a brief overview of what is involved in a pothole repair and how Dr. Floors can assist you in maintaining your asphalt surfaces.
Patching is a common asphalt repair in order to deal with areas of pavement that have potholes. Potholes occur when water seeps into pavement through unsealed or improperly sealed cracks. Over time the presence of water in the crack causes it to break down the asphalt further. This causes the surrounding pavement to fall into the expanding crack, forming a pothole.
What If You Have a Sink Hole?
Sinkholes are not like potholes. While you might repair a sinkhole in the same way as a pothole, sometimes the repair methods are more involved. As a result, be prepared to spend more if you have a sinkhole versus a pothole.
Pothole Repair Procedure
The process of filling a pothole depends on the size of the pothole in terms of width and depth. Other conditions that may affect how the job is approached is the interior or exterior ambient condition, as well as, the clients end goals for how the surface should look once repaired.
In order to repair the asphalt, there may be some preparation involved. To make it easier for Dr. Floors to perform your asphalt repair, consider doing the following:
Remove dust and dirt. Using a stiff bristled broom, simply sweep up around the area that needs to be repaired. If there is a significant amount of debris, such as dirt or dead grass, you can also try using a push blower to remove the debris from the area.
Remove vegetation. Over time vegetation may have grown inside potholes. If there are just a few weeds or grasses that have grown in the pothole, remove these. However, if the vegetation growing in the pothole is due to tree roots or other vegetation that is difficult to remove without expanding the pothole further, this task should be left to an asphalt repair specialist.
