Recently, we worked with a condominium complex in Cherry Hill, NJ. One of our asphalt consultants worked closely with the property manager to find the solutions to rehabilitate their asphalt parking lot without inconveniencing residents. The existing parking lot was worn and had several cracks that would cause major deterioration if not fixed quickly. After the consultation, we agreed on crack sealing, sealcoating, and then parking lot restriping.

First we used only the highest quality professional crack fillers to fix the parking lot cracks. Next, we laid an asphalt sealcoating over the parking lot to seal smaller cracks, revitalize the asphalt, as well as protect against future wear. Then we painted the parking lines and numbers that would let residents safely drive and park.

Many commercial property managers worry about asphalt repairs interrupting their business, but we got everything done quickly. The condo complex was very organized in moving residents cars, so we were able to seal cracks, coat the parking lot, and restripe it all in the same day.

5 Quick Tips on Maintaining your Driveway in the Winter

5 Quick Tips on Maintaining your Driveway in the WinterMore than one homeowner has seen a driveway that appeared perfectly fine disappear under a blanket of ice and snow, emerging in the spring as a dull, cracked, shadow of its former self. Ideally, asphalt maintenance should be performed year-round, but there are certain steps that can be taken in winter to help prevent damage.

5 Quick Tips on Maintaining your Driveway in the Winter

• Avoid chemical deicing agents as well products containing rock salt. They may melt through the ice quickly, but their corrosive effects can damage asphalt. Opt for sand or kitty litter instead to improve traction and help expedite melting.
• Use a rubber-bladed snow shovel rather than a metal variety. Especially avoid metal shovels that have a pointed tip as they can damage your pavement.
• Whether you hire someone to plow your drive or do it yourself, make sure that the blade is set to the correct height. If it is too low, it can scrape the asphalt.
• Ensure that your driveway has proper drainage. It is often helpful to remove a two-inch strip of grass along the driveway’s perimeter to facilitate runoff.
• Keep gutter spouts pointed away from your driveway. If rain or melting snow is allowed to flow freely onto your driveway, it can freeze. This can pose a safety hazard, but it can also endanger your asphalt.

Maintaining your driveway throughout the year can help prevent damages caused by winter weather. Having crack repair as soon as you notice them, and at minimum, have any cracks professionally filled before winter arrives. Cracks allow water to pool beneath the pavement, and then when the water freezes, it can expand and cause additional cracking. Having your driveway sealed in the autumn is another way to protect your asphalt against winter weather.

How long can you expect asphalt pavement to last?

sealcoating-process-edge-parking-lotAsphalt has been used for a variety of purposes for at least 2,500 years, but it was during the 18th century that it began to see widespread use as a paving material. The lifespan of asphalt pavement depends on a number of factors. The most critical element in extending the life of asphalt pavement is proper maintenance and upkeep. Properly maintained asphalt pavement should last between 20 and 30 years, or 25 years on average.

How Weather Effects The Longevity of Pavement

Climate plays an important part in the premature failing of asphalt pavement. In dry, hot areas, the pavement may become brittle. In humid, wet areas, moisture can accumulate beneath the pavement and weaken it. Water beneath the pavement, which can occur from leaking pipes or a rising water table, can weaken the pavement so much that it can no longer support traffic. Improper drainage of surface water, such as from heavy rains or runoff, can also cause the pavement to fail. Whether it is on the surface or below the pavement, water can freeze, expanding any cracks and contributing to premature failure.

How Neglect Effects The Longevity of Pavement

However, the most common reason for having to replace asphalt pavement prematurely is neglect. Filling and sealing cracks as they appear protects the pavement structure and base from water accumulating under the pavement. Repairing areas that are showing signs of fatigue prior to their failure can prevent more costly repairs later. Filling potholes while they are still small is another way of avoiding more expensive fixes.

Proper Care Maximizes Pavement Life

One of the best methods of protecting asphalt pavement is with asphalt sealcoating. Two coats are normally applied to protect asphalt from the damage that the sun, salt, oil, gas and water can cause. In addition, sealcoating gives the asphalt a deep, black finish that enhances its appearance. Learn more about our asphalt sealcoating service.

Asphalt rejuvenator enhances the look of pavement while protecting the asphalt. Rejuvenator replenishes the oils found in asphalt. As a result, the asphalt is more resilient and less prone to cracking. One application can last for three to five years, and in some instances, the pavement can last twice as long.
