Maximizing the Lifespan of Asphalt Surfaces

Asphalt surfaces are critical to the functionality and appearance of commercial properties. Whether it’s a parking lot that’s always busy with vehicles, driveways that welcome customers, or pathways that guide pedestrians, proper maintenance of these asphalt surfaces is essential for ensuring safety, enhancing curb appeal, and protecting your property investment.

To maximize the lifespan of asphalt surfaces, regular maintenance is crucial. Establishing a proactive maintenance schedule can help identify and address issues early on, preventing them from escalating into costly repairs.

Regular inspections of your asphalt surfaces should be conducted to identify signs of wear and damage, such as cracks, potholes, and surface deterioration. Inspections should be scheduled at least twice a year, ideally in the spring and fall, to assess the condition of the pavement and plan maintenance activities accordingly.

Cracks are one of the primary culprits behind asphalt deterioration, as they allow water to penetrate the pavement structure, leading to further damage. Therefore, prompt sealing of cracks with a quality crack filler is important to prevent moisture intrusion and inhibit the growth of weeds or vegetation.
