Asphalt Pavement Maintenance Tips for the Spring Season
As spring approaches and the weather gets warmer, the elements under your asphalt pavement start to expand, increasing the likelihood of damage. To keep your pavement in perfect condition during this spring season, here are some maintenance tips:
Do some repairs
Check your pavement for any damages caused by winter, the excessive moisture, and the extreme temperatures it brings. Fix potholes and patch up any damaged areas. Doing these repairs now will ensure that the pavement is not damaged further during the summer, saving you money in the future.
Sealcoat the pavement
If there are signs of discoloring or wearing off on your pavement, apply seal coating to it. This gives it a brand-new look and further protects it from the elements: water, UV rays from the sun, and engine oils from vehicles. Ideally, you need to seal coat your pavement professionally every 2-3 years to help it maintain its structural stability.
Hire professionals to clean up your pavement
In preparation for spring, hire professionals to clean up your asphalt pavement thoroughly. In addition to an extensive inspection, they should also clean up all the dirt on the surface and remove any debris stuck in the small cracks under the pavement.
To keep an asphalt pavement looking its best, you need to take good care of it. Good maintenance improves your pavement’s curb appeal, saves you in future repair costs, and ensures continued durability.
