Commercial Asphalt Repair Options

Over time, asphalt surfaces can deteriorate due to factors such as weather, traffic, and natural wear and tear. Proper maintenance is crucial to prolonging the lifespan of commercial asphalt surfaces and ensuring safety for users, and repairs will sometimes be needed. Here are some common commercial asphalt repair options.

Pothole Repair

Potholes are a common problem in asphalt surfaces, resulting from the repeated expansion and contraction of water that has penetrated the pavement. Potholes can pose safety hazards and damage vehicles, making timely repair essential. 

Commercial asphalt repair companies use various techniques for pothole repairs, such as cold patching, hot mix patching, and infrared patching. The choice of repair method depends on factors such as the size and depth of the pothole, weather conditions, and budget constraints.

Crack Sealing

Cracks in asphalt surfaces can allow water to infiltrate the pavement, leading to further damage and deterioration. Crack sealing is a preventive maintenance method that involves cleaning and filling cracks with a specialized sealant material, preventing water from entering the pavement and prolonging its lifespan. 

Crack sealing is typically performed periodically, depending on the extent of cracking and the specific needs of the commercial property.

Asphalt Resurfacing

Asphalt resurfacing, also known as overlay, is a cost-effective repair option for commercial pavements that have extensive surface damage but a structurally sound base. This process involves applying a new layer of asphalt over the existing surface, providing a fresh, smooth, and durable surface for users. 

Asphalt resurfacing can address issues such as cracking, rutting, and rough texture, and can significantly extend the pavement's life.

Asphalt Milling and Replacement

In cases where the damage to the asphalt surface is too extensive for resurfacing or the structural integrity of the pavement is compromised, asphalt milling and replacement may be necessary. Milling begins with removing the damaged layers of asphalt using specialized milling equipment and then installing a new asphalt surface. 

Asphalt milling and replacement can restore the pavement's structural integrity, improve drainage, and provide a smooth and safe surface for users.

Asphalt Sealcoating

Sealcoating is a preventive maintenance method that involves applying a protective coating to the asphalt surface, shielding it from damage caused by UV rays, water, and chemicals. 

Sealcoating can also improve the appearance of commercial asphalt surfaces by giving them a fresh, uniform look. Regular sealcoating can extend the life of commercial asphalt pavements and help maintain their aesthetic appeal.
