4 Important Asphalt Maintenance Services You Should Regularly Schedule

Your home is a costly investment and you want to protect it and its units to ensure they remain looking good and functional. One of the crucial units that you must take care of is the driveway and pavements since it's one of the things guests see first when they visit your home. The best way to do this is by ensuring that they are regularly cleaned and serviced. Some of the maintenance services you should consider include pressure washing, resurfacing, sealcoating, and crack filling. This guide analyzes in detail each one of these asphalt maintenance services.

Pressure Washing

This process involves using a high-pressure water spray to remove loose paint, mold, grime, dust, mud, chewing gum, and dirt from surfaces and objects such as buildings, vehicles, and asphalt surfaces. It's one of the most effective asphalt pavement cleaning methods. Not only does it clean your pavement but also it prepares the surface for other treatments such as resurfacing and sealcoating.

Resurfacing

Resurfacing is a pavement restoration process that involves laying a new layer of asphalt over the existing pavement. It is ideal for pavements that have minor cracks and surface damage. This maintenance service not only makes your pavement look as good as new but it can also extend its lifespan. You should consult a competent asphalt contractor to know when your pavement needs resurfacing.

Sealcoating

This is the process of applying a protective coating on the surface of your asphalt pavement. The coating is usually a mix of emulsified asphalt, water, and other additives such as fillers and sand. Sealcoating can protect your pavement from the damaging effects of sun, rain, snow, and ice. It can also make it easy to clean and extends its lifespan. You should sealcoat your pavement after every few years.

Crack Filling

Over time, your asphalt driveway or pavement may develop cracks due to daily foot traffic or vehicle movement. It's important to fill these cracks as soon as they appear to prevent further damage. Crack filling involves injecting a sealant into the cracks to fill them up and prevent water and other debris from getting into them. This maintenance service can extend the lifespan of your pavement.

These are some of the important asphalt maintenance services you should regularly schedule. Be sure to consult a competent contractor to help you with these services. They can assess the condition of your pavement and recommend the most suitable maintenance services.

About Me

Keep on Building, Keep on Learning

Ask any construction worker if they know everything about their profession, and they will generally respond with a resounding "no." This does not mean that construction workers are not knowledgeable about their jobs — they really are! What it does mean is that they are always learning, and that they understand that continuing to learn is a part of the job. That's something we think that most people could stand to learn from. If were were all as open to building knowledge as contractors and builders, imagine what we could learn. We decided to contribute, in our own small part, by writing this blog about construction work. We hope you enjoy and learn from it.
