Asphalt lots and driveways take the brunt of nonstop use. After a while, cars, people, and weather prove to be asphalt's main sources of damage. Though it's the popular choice for pavements, even asphalt needs repair. You might be thinking—how's that possible? What's more stable than road pavement?
The answer is not much. Still, fixing pavement cracks is a natural part of asphalt maintenance. If you own a business, it's important to keep pavements smooth for your clients and customers.
Here's how to keep your asphalt as strong as your business.
Fixing Pavement Cracks
Asphalt driveways and parking lots are extensions of your business. No one wants to visit a building with a parking lot that's riddled with potholes and tire-busting dips.
Knowing asphalt's prone to cracking makes it easy to keep an eye out for them. Being proactive allows for setting aside a crack fixing budget.
How Long Before My Asphalt Cracks?
It's normal for asphalt to need repairs every 3-5 years. The longer you wait to repair it, the more likely it is to grow potholes and different crack sizes. Staying on top of things can make for effortless repairs in the short-term.
Why's My Asphalt Cracking?
There are many reasons for asphalt cracking. The first involves the elements—water, gas, and heat. Ottawa has 120 days of snowfall, making melted snow a big culprit for asphalt cracks.
Air quality, road traffic, foot traffic, and changing climates explain the need for asphalt repairs.
