What Is Asphalt Repair?

Maintaining a clean and smooth driveway can take a bit of hard work. Most times it can be quite expensive as well if you’re inexperienced in finding legitimate Sealcoating companies. A deteriorated driveway can be brought back to life with asphalt repair. Asphalt repair, to put it simply, is when you or a company fix up damaged asphalt pavement so that it looks brand new.

The most common types of asphalt repair methods include asphalt replacement, patching, paving, or full-depth replacement. Each method is used according to how severe your situation is, and in some cases, how much you are willing to spend. The size of your driveway is also taken into consideration, as a bigger driveway can be more expensive to repair. However, even if you have an average-sized driveway, extreme severe damage could still result in a costly restoration.

When Should You Get an Asphalt Sealing or Asphalt Paving?

There are some signs your driveway will give you that tells you that you need to contact a professional. Some obvious ones include: potholes, puddles appearing randomly, cracks or deterioration, and broken pieces around the base or edges of your driveway. Some other signs may still be obvious, but may take a second glance.

For example, some damaged asphalt surfaces begin to sulk into the ground and create a dented illusion. Some might lose their rich color, or even have stains on the surface. Even worse, the pavement could begin to crack and crumble, making it harder for certain vehicles or bikes to ride over without causing damage to the tires. Even without riding, a cracked pavement could cause someone to trip and fall, which makes it dangerous as well.

When you notice these signs, try to contact a professional immediately if you can afford it. Some of these common issues can be minor depending on the individual. If you aren’t too concerned about the upkeep, you’re liable to lay it off for a while. However, if you’re a business or someone with a high reputation, you may want to take repair into consideration as quickly as within a few weeks. On another note, any asphalt troubles that could cause damage to your tires should also be taken care of immediately. In general, try to aim for a repair every 3 to 5 years if not urgent.

Tips for Maintaining Your Asphalt Driveway

There are some precautions you may want to take into consideration if you want to extend the life of your pavement. There are different ways to maintain your driveway, depending on if it has just been applied, or if it has been a few months since your first seal.

Be Careful When Driving

When you first get a new asphalt driveway, you want to make sure that you are easy with driving and/or riding on the pavement. Don’t make sharp turns or any obnoxious movements with your car. Remember that the car’s heavy impact on the surface could do damage that may take a while to disappear. Also, don’t turn your wheels while the car is in place, this will also cause damage. Heavy duty vehicles such as tow-trucks or construction trucks should avoid operating on fresh asphalt as well, as this will do more damage. If you do happen to do this, be sure that you are driving with ease. Avoid speeding, turning, power steering, or any other rough movements with your vehicle. Bikes and motorcycles included.

Apply Appropriate Substances to Keep It Fresh

Adding oil or certain cleaners to the surface to keep ir revived can also lengthen the driveway survival. Be sure that you get them from the same supplier that provided you with your repair materials if you did it yourself. Otherwise, contact professionals for advice on what cleaners would best be fit for the maintenance and cleaning of your driveway.

Some practical tips would be to avoid sprays that are heavy in chemicals or vague ingredient descriptions. Using those could result in damage to not only the pavement but your pets as well.

Keep It Ice-Free During Winter

If your driveway is covered in ice, it can cause a number of problems. First, it will make it harder to detect any cracks, or even get to the cracks to fix them. This will force you to have to wait longer until the ice melts to fix this situation, depending on how thick the ice is. Secondly, the longer you have ice sitting on the surface of the asphalt, the higher the chance you have of water leaking inside the pavement, causing severe damage as explained above. Make sure that you are keeping the icy surface salted so that it will melt as fast as possible.

If you don’t have access to ice, you can also try liquid deicers or certain chloride mixtures to melt the icy surface. Since it is important to melt the ice as soon as you can, this would be ideal if you have some around the house, cannot travel, and are not in supply of salt for ice melting. Though these are decent options, they are not highly recommended for melting ice off of your asphalt pavement. It is best to stick to salt whenever possible. You can also consider asking your professionals if they offer this as a service as well, since it ties into maintenance and upkeep.

Keep Your Lawn Maintained

Believe it or not, the surrounding grass and plants of your driveway could also cause damage if they are not being maintained. Be sure to keep the edges of the driveway clean and free of grass, plants, and weeds especially. Don’t be so quick to spray them with chemicals either. Trim them with proper tools or ask your asphalt professionals if they offer trimming services as well for a fee. The driveway isn’t the only thing that should be taken after. As it is a part of the entire home, the surrounding areas are just as important. Especially since they will impact the condition and appearance of your driveway.

Maintaining Parking Lots and Concrete

Parking lots and concrete can be maintained using some of the tips provided when maintaining your driveway. Always take the extra step to ensure the surface is cleaned and properly cared after to prevent damage and breakage on the surface. Sealcoating is always the best solution for minor or even some major damages in certain cases. You should always contact a professional before making any big decisions, however. It is best to do this as soon as you notice problems. If your parking lot or concrete area is part of your business or operation, make sure that there is low traffic during the first week after your asphalt is applied.
