Maximizing the Lifespan of Your Asphalt Surface

May 12, 2023

Asphalt surfaces are a popular choice for driveways, parking lots, and roads due to their durability, affordability, and low maintenance. However, like any other surface, they are subject to wear and tear over time. Proper maintenance and care can significantly extend the lifespan of your asphalt surface. Marchi Paving is a general contractor that specializes in asphalt paving, excavation, site work, drainage, utilities, masonry, and commercial snow removal and can help you maximize the lifespan of your asphalt surface.

Here are some tips for maximizing the lifespan of your asphalt surface:

  1. Regular cleaning: Regular cleaning is essential to prevent dirt, debris, and chemicals from accumulating on the surface and causing damage. Sweeping or power washing the surface can help to keep it clean.
  2. Proper drainage: Poor drainage can cause water to accumulate on the surface, leading to cracks and potholes. Ensuring that your surface has proper drainage can help to prevent this from happening.
  3. Crack sealing: Cracks in your asphalt surface can quickly lead to larger problems if not addressed. Cracks should be sealed as soon as possible to prevent water from penetrating and causing further damage.
  4. Sealcoating: Sealcoating can protect your asphalt surface from UV rays and other environmental factors that can cause it to deteriorate. It is recommended that you sealcoat your surface every two to three years.
  5. Repairs: Any damage to your surface should be repaired promptly to prevent it from getting worse. Small cracks and potholes can be repaired with a cold patch, while larger repairs may require hot mix asphalt.
  6. Traffic management: Heavy vehicles and machinery can cause significant damage to asphalt surfaces. Limiting the weight and frequency of heavy vehicles on your surface can help to prevent damage.
  7. Snow and ice removal: Snow and ice can cause damage to asphalt surfaces, particularly if not removed promptly. Marchi Paving offers commercial snow removal services to ensure that your surface is properly cleared and safe.
