Crack Repair Is Integral For Asphalt Maintenance
Asphalt is the nation’s most popular paving material for virtually all types of pavement. You can find it on busy highways, parking lots, airport runways, residential driveways, tennis courts, city streets and just about anywhere that a durable, economical paving material is needed. Asphalt pavement can also be completely recycled — in fact, it is the most-recycled material in America. Unfortunately, some asphalt pavement winds up in the recycling plant prematurely due to neglected maintenance and timely repairs. If you want to ensure that you get the longest possible life from your asphalt pavement, professional repairs are the best way to achieve this goal.
Crack Repair Is Integral For Asphalt Maintenance -Repairing and Maintaining
One critical type of crack repair that you should prioritize is crack filler. Cracks in asphalt pavement will almost always grow in both length and width. These cracks will allow water to seep beneath the pavement, eroding the base. Once the base has been damaged, potholes, alligator cracking and depressions can occur. Repairing severe damage often requires removal of existing pavement and repairs to the base, which means that your repair bill will be much higher than what it would have cost to repair the cracks in a timely manner.
Another common procedure that is often neglected is sealcoating. Sealcoating can help prevent automotive fluids from damaging your asphalt pavement, and it can block the rays from the sun that make your pavement dry and faded. However, sealcoating should not be applied until after cracks are repaired.
Crack Repair Can Reduce Pavement Downtime
When major repairs are needed, your pavement often needs to be closed for 24 to 48 hours. This can disrupt the flow of traffic and generate confusion among your customers and employees. Normally, crack filling only requires closing the area immediate surrounding the crack, so there is less disruption. Furthermore, the area can usually be reopened much sooner.
