Asphalt is a popular choice for both residential and commercial paved surfaces and with good reason. It is durable, versatile and, in many cases, a more cost-effective option. A freshly paved asphalt parking lot, driveway, or walking path can really improve the appearance of a home, business or public areas such as a park or bike path. While municipal management, property managers, businesses and homeowners all would like to keep their asphalt surfaces looking as good as the day they were installed. Many are unaware of the proper way to maintain them. Hiring a professional asphalt maintenance services company is the best way to extend the lifespan of your asphalt surfaces, keeping them safe and looking great.
Benefits of Asphalt Maintenance Services
Despite its strength and durability, constant use and exposure to extreme weather conditions can result in the wear and tear of asphalt. Allowing cracks, potholes or any other type of damage or deterioration to go unaddressed can significantly decrease the lifespan of your asphalt surfaces. At the first sign of deterioration or damage, its time for asphalt maintenance services and the benefits they provide.
Early asphalt maintenance can prevent small repairs from becoming major problems. Something as simple a small crack in your asphalt surfaces can quickly become a pothole if left unattended. A pothole left unattended will eventually lead to serious or complete deterioration of your asphalt surface. Immediately addressing minor repairs will help preserve the appearance and safety of your asphalt and prevent the need to replace it.
Preserving your paved surfaces with asphalt maintenance services is a good investment. Preventing small cracks and potholes from turning into major issues requiring extensive and expensive repairs or replacement can save a lot of money. The small amount paid for asphalt maintenance services could easily become thousands of dollars if minor issues are not addressed in a timely manner.
Avoid Environment Impact
Without proper maintenance, extreme temperatures and weather conditions can wreak havoc on asphalt surfaces. Small cracks left unattended before winter arrives can result in much bigger problems by the time spring rolls around. Those cracks will allow water to seep beneath the pavement and expand and contract as the temperatures fluctuate. This will put significant pressure on the asphalt, causing the damage to increase. The heat of the summer can also cause asphalt to loosen slightly, making it susceptible to wear and tear from vehicle traffic. Asphalt professionals can inspect your asphalt as the seasons change and make any repairs necessary to prevent minor issues from escalating.
Prevent Accidents and Injuries
Poor asphalt pavement is among the major causes of roadway accidents. Something as simple as swerving to miss a pothole can result in a serious accident. However, damaged asphalt isn’t only hazardous on roadways. It can also be the cause of accidents and personal injury in parking lots, on walkways and on driveways. Small cracks or potholes in a parking lot can lead to people tripping and a potential injury. Those same potholes can cause damage to vehicles when driving over them. In addition to the costs of asphalt repairs, you may also be looking at an insurance claim or possibly even a lawsuit. Asphalt maintenance is a much better option.
