Asphalt patching and repair of your paved driveway is a cost effective solution to increasing the longevity of your paved driveway. Like anything on your Southern Alberta property, maintenance is key to increasing the lifetime of your asphalt paved driveway.
Your asphalt driveway is one of the first things anybody notices when coming to your home, so keep your country driveway and acreage looking sharp and professional.
Why do paved driveways need asphalt patching?
Paved driveways will start to show signs of wear due to a few reasons. Overall wear and tear is the usual culprit. The older the driveway, the more likely you need asphalt repairs.
Water is the enemy of pavement. The longer your driveway goes with potholes and breakages in the asphalt, the more damage there will be. Poor drainage can also lead to potholes. As water pools in areas on your paved driveway, it can seep through the asphalt. This usually happens on pavement that is in the process of drying out.
Asphalt driveways have a binder agent in the asphalt and it can dry out due to lack of maintenance which includes resealing.
Asphalt patching and repairing your cracked, potholed or faded driveway is very important to make sure you do not have to invest in a new paved asphalt driveway in the near future.
Asphalt Patching – Potholes
Potholes can be damaging not only to your paved driveway but also to your automobiles. Potholes can grow in size relatively quickly and should be addressed as soon as possible. If left in a state of disrepair, a pothole can allow water to pass into the subgrade and make the damage much worse. This is especially true during fluctuations in above and below freezing levels that Southern Alberta receives in the late winter/early spring months.
We use tar and hot asphalt to patch your driveway potholes and breakages in the pavement. Similar to asphalt repair for cracks, surface preparation is key to ensuring success.
There are many types of patching techniques and we use the one that work best for your driveway and the time of year we do the asphalt patching. Please contact Alberta Road Services to discuss our products and asphalt repair techniques.
Commercial Asphalt Patching and Repair
Does your company have a parking lot that is showing signs of water damage, potholes and breakages in the asphalt? Alberta Road Services works with many commercial enterprises doing asphalt repair on parking lots. Not only do parking lots full of potholes look bad but also can affect your drive in traffic as customers may avoid your location due to the asphalt being in a state of disrepair.
Asphalt Repair – Cracks
Asphalt driveways should have maintenance completed every few years to ensure you get the most years out of your initial driveway investment.
Cracks in your driveway is a good indicator is it time to get your driveway maintained by Alberta Road Services.
The two main reasons for repairing cracks are to prevent water intrusion into the pavement base which could break up the pavement during freeze thaw cycles in Southern Alberta. As well as preventing dirt and other material from settling in the cracks, which can cause more damage as the pavement expands and contracts with temperature fluctuations.
When we do asphalt patching and repair, we make sure that the surface of the paved driveway is prepared correctly. To ensure that the sealant will bond to both sides of the crack, we clean the cracks with a pressure washer.
