Asphalt Services Your Property May Need

Blog

Asphalt service providers can be called upon to address a number of different issues for their clients. However, property owners are often unaware of the various services that a professional asphalt service provider will be able to offer, which can make some routine issues seem like they will be a bigger problem to address than they actually are.

Alligator Crack Repairs

Alligator cracks forming in the asphalt can be a significant problem that property owners should never underestimate. While these cracks are typically fairly small, they can rapidly spread to cover a large section of the asphalt. Repairing this problem can be challenging due to the sheer number of cracks that can be present. However, professional asphalt services will be able to apply a filler that can close these gaps and reinforce the asphalt so that the cracks will be unlikely to return in the near future. Alligator cracks are often a sign of the asphalt suffering water damage, so you may want to have it sealed once the cracks have been repaired.

Deep Cleaning

Deep cleaning of the asphalt surface is another important type of maintenance that you should be doing. During a deep clean, the asphalt will undergo extensive pressure washing so that any of the dirt or vehicle fluids that have become embedded into the small openings in the asphalt can be removed. Considering that you are unlikely to have the equipment needed to perform this type of pressure washing, it will typically be the most economical and convenient to hire an asphalt service to perform this type of essential maintenance. By removing these substances from the asphalt, you can minimize the risk of cracks developing as well as protect the color of the asphalt.

Drainage Enhancements

If your asphalt has been in place for some time, you may have had a chance to better understand the drainage problems that it may be experiencing. For example, you may notice that there are some sections of the asphalt that are more prone to developing standing water. To avoid letting these drainage issues potentially damage the asphalt, you should invest in drainage enhancements. These enhancements can include adding more drains and even increasing the incline of the center of the asphalt to encourage water to run off to the sides. While these can be sizable upgrades to make to your asphalt, they can potentially reduce the lifetime repair costs while also ensuring that it lasts as long as possible before replacement is necessary.

Improving Your Paving

About a year ago, I realized that there were all kinds of problems with our home's pavement. The driveway seemed to be chipping apart and the front walkway was desperately cracked. I knew that I had to do something to improve things, so I started working on getting bids to improve things. It was amazing to see how many different pavement options we had and how great of a job one contractor eventually did. The difference was astounding after all of the pavement was broken out and things were fixed. This blog is all about improving your paving and making a significant difference in your home.
