While asphalt is certainly an amazing material to use for your driveway, because of its resilience, it is not impervious to damage. Because of this, there may come a time when you need to use our services to help bring your asphalt back to life. Instead of spending the money and time to have a brand new driveway laid down, let us come out and see if we can fix the problems first. There are several things we can do to try and make your asphalt driveway as good as new.
If you are experiencing cracks or small holes forming in your asphalt, we can help to fill those and make your driveway whole again. Depending on how severe the cracks and holes are, there is a very good chance that we can fill them. We will mix asphalt solution and simply fill in the cracks or holes with this. We will fill the voids and level out the mixture to make sure that the spaces we patch look exactly like the rest of your driveway. If you need patching, we can make your driveway look amazing.
One of the downfalls of any type of material that is laid on top of earth, is that that material is prone to the natural movement of the earth it sits on. While asphalt can deal with a lot of stress, it is not immune to stress fractures, breaks and upheaval. When water finds its way under your asphalt and in to your soil, it can start to cause massive problems. One of the things that can happen here, is that expanding, wet soil can put pressure on your asphalt, pushing it up in certain places. We can help to level out these upheavals and help to make your driveway flat again.
While asphalt does a great job of holding up to the elements and the sun, it can still start to wear out over the years. If you have gotten to a point where your asphalt is looking tired, it may be time to resurface your driveway. If the structural integrity of your asphalt is still in good shape, there is no need to completely remove and re-pave. Rather than spend precious time and a lot of money, let us take the top layer of your asphalt off and resurface your driveway.
One of the best ways to maintain your driveway and to make sure that it lasts as long as it can and doesn’t need to be replaced, is to keep it clean. During warm weather seasons, using a hose to spray off the driveway is a good idea and it is something that should be done regularly. During colder months, use a stiff bristled broom to remove any debris and to aid against growths of things like mold and fungus. Proper cleaning can go a long way to ensuring that your asphalt driveway holds up as long as possible.
