Driveway Repair & Asphalt Sealcoating
Here are some benefits of driveway sealing:
It will prevent water from seeping into the tiny cracks, leading to expansion over time.
It protects against UV damage that may come with sun exposure as well as fungus or lichen in colder regions where snow is prevalent.
It helps to reduce oxidation and minimize cracks in the asphalt or concrete driveway.
Acts as a protective barrier against water seepage or snowplow blade damage by keeping moisture out and helping to prolong the life of the asphalt.
A new layer provides color protection for an asphalt surface, which is often lost over time as it wears down.
It is a quick and easy project that can be completed in one day, which is often faster than replacing an existing surface with completely new coats.
Our Asphalt Driveway Repair Services Include:
Asphalt can last 15 to 20 years on average, but it can live even longer with proper maintenance.
If your asphalt is starting to show signs of wear and tear, it’s time for a professional inspection. Our paving contractors will come out to assess the damage and issue an estimate on how much needs to be repaired or replaced. A fresh, new coat of asphalt is the only way to ensure your road stays in pristine condition for an extended time.
Driveway Pothole Repair
Much like repairing damaged sidewalks and curbs, driveway pothole repairs are often necessary in repairing aging or deteriorating pavement. Driveway cracks can come as a result of changes in weather temperature levels, pressure, and moisture.
Pothole repair is not just a cosmetic fix; it can also prevent more severe damage in the future that results from water seeping into cracks over time. You may need a driveway crack sealer if you have large holes with cracks around them. Materials include a Cold Mix patch that typically lasts two to three years before another repair becomes necessary, and a Hot Tar mix that dries and hardens to fill the cracks and can last up to five years under ideal conditions.
In contrast with temporary repairs such as cold mix or hot tar, you may need a more permanent repair if you find that your driveway has some particularly deep holes. A contractor will use asphalt or concrete patch to fill the holes in your driveway and apply new asphalt over the patched section.
This will result in a smooth, even surface that is less likely to develop potholes and cracks.
Asphalt Crack Sealing Repair
A crack in the asphalt is a huge problem that needs to be taken care of. Large cracks can open up and cause damage to your driveway, home, car, or any other property by letting moisture into them. In addition, these large gaps will allow weeds and invasive plants like grasses to take root underneath the surface of your asphalt pavement. Consequently, this can lead to an overall weakening of your entire pavement.
Asphalt Crack Sealing Repair is a technique that seals cracks in the asphalt using a paste-like substance and smoothing the surface over with tar, which dries quickly, thus, making it impervious to water or other substances to seep into the crack.
The materials used for this process are tar, paste-like substance (e.g., tar and oil stains, asphalt emulsion), and water hose or wetting agent to help the paste absorb into cracks better.
The procedure is as follows:
- Use a stiff brush to scrub off any loose debris on your asphalt pavement.
- Apply the tar and paste mixture to the crack. A wetting agent is used, such as water or asphalt emulsion, to help the tar absorb better into the cracks.
- Use plastic sheeting to keep any excess stains from spreading out onto the driveway.
- A squeegee-type tool is used to smooth everything out and ensure that the tar and paste are evenly distributed in the cracks.
- Use a tarp to cover any exposed areas. This is especially important when raining; otherwise, water may seep back into the cracks.
This process should be repeated every few years, as needed.
A piece of knowledge of the procedure will help you to get the desired results effectively!
