Summer Asphalt Repairs: What You Need to Know

Summer Asphalt Repairs

Summer Asphalt Repairs

Summer is officially in full swing, and in only a few short months, it will be over and giving way to the cooler weather of fall. While summer is still on your side, it is important to make plans for the asphalt repairs that will help your driveway or parking lot surface survive the winter with minimal damage. These summer asphalt repair processes should be at the top of your list.

Crack Sealing

The winter and spring seasons are known for causing damage to asphalt, especially as heavy snow and rain expose asphalt to excessive moisture. This makes summer the perfect time to repair all of that damage so that the asphalt can survive and remain strong throughout the upcoming seasons. Preventative maintenance and the repair of minor problems is considerably less expensive and demanding than waiting to fix major deficiencies.

Asphalt cracks can be repaired with liquid asphalt in order to prevent water from entering into the cracks and compromising the structure of the pavement. When moisture is allowed to work its way into asphalt, it generates even more cracking and deterioration, so crack sealing is crucial.

Sealcoating

Summer is a great time to complete all sealcoating needs for your asphalt. Sealcoating is one of the very best ways to extend the life of an asphalt driveway or parking lot, because it provides a new layer of protection against water, oils, UV rays, and other harsh contaminants. In fact, sealcoating will more than double the life of your asphalt and minimize the need for more expensive repairs down the road. As an added perk, sealcoating also creates a beautiful, dark black finish to help the surface look brand new.
