Assessing the Damage
If there are just a few minor cracks or edging issues that need to be addressed, we are able to complete some minor repairs rather than a complete resurfacing of your area. To do this we are able to fill out the cracks as they typically only appear on the top layer and leave the middle and lower layers in perfect condition. These are then compressed and sealed as per the standard process and this will leave your asphalt paving area looking as good as new in no time.
If you are looking for a clean, sleek look in a cost effective way, an asphalt driveway is probably ideal for your property. It is perfect for the standard everyday use and is flexible with temperature, avoiding cracks due to temperature fluctuation better than concrete. While both are traditional methods for a driveway installation, they are both exceptionally durable. Asphalt driveways should last in excess of 30 years with the proper maintenance being repairs and sealing every three to five years. They are able to have a color added to the mix when it is laid or have a tinted seal applied to it to give it some character.
When there is cracking shown throughout the asphalt area, it may mean that a complete resurfacing is required to get it back up to standard. These kind of works are often not required for many years after the initial installation, however they are a service we provide as there is a need for them eventually and commonly in older homes. This can be a great opportunity for you to customize your asphalt area with some color if this option was not available when you first has your asphalt area installed. Our team will gladly speak with you about your options so that you can make an informed decision.
Sealing is a standard requirement of asphalt to help strengthen its surface. As asphalt is a porous material, it can easily absorb any stains that fall onto it. A sealer will help to slow down the absorption process so that you can clean up stains before they are soaked in and start affecting the appearance of your property. The sealer will also help to protect your asphalt from the elements of mother nature and cracking that occurs due to this. Sealing is generally required every three to five years.
