Asphalt Patching: Asphalt Paving Doesn’t Last Forever

The use of asphalt for paving has been employed for thousands of years. It is the strongest and most durable material for paving roads, sidewalks, and lots. Despite its durable nature, asphalt paving does not last forever.

Through everyday use, asphalt paving will eventually begin to fade and crack. No matter how durable the asphalt is or no matter how well the asphalt was originally placed, there are several external factors that are working against your surface. Heat and sunlight are major causes of the deterioration of your asphalt surface. Constant hot sunlight will cause inevitable cracking of the asphalt.

Precipitation and cold weather are also major contributors to the destruction of your asphalt surface. Rain and snow can fill the smallest of cracks and then freeze. These frozen areas can cause further cracks and breakage in the asphalt. Finally, automobile use is a significant factor in the breakdown of your asphalt surface. The constant pressure applied by heavy cars and trucks to your surface can weaken your asphalt surface and lead to breakage. It is of vital importance that your asphalt pavement be properly maintained.

Asphalt Patching FAQs

How do I know if I need asphalt patching or full restoration?

Asphalt patching is mainly done to repair potholes so your property can look clean and be safe for your customers. Patching potholes can also protect the potholes from growing and causing further damage to your asphalt. If your asphalt is otherwise in good condition, patching can help restore it, so it looks new. 

Why should I do asphalt patching instead of reconstruction?

Asphalt patching is more cost-effective and can also be completed on a quicker timeline than full asphalt reconstruction.
