Charlotte Pothole Repair and Patching
Parking lots and roadways not correctly maintained and cared for will eventually result in damaged vehicles, expensive pavement replacement, and a lot of maintenance costs.
With regular asphalt repair and patching, you can increase the useful lifespan, and customers are going to notice your efforts.
The Value of Asphalt Parking Lot & Road Repair
Potholes tend to be caused by repeated expansion and contraction of water after it’s entered the ground underneath the asphalt. Water is asphalt’s worst enemy, therefore proper drainage is vital. Parking lots take serious abuse with all the constant expansion and shrinkage, wear and tear from the environment, and continuous traffic every day.
UV rays pounding on the pavement all day long causes it to fade over time. It not only looks bad, but it will start to weaken and fall apart quicker than the life expectancy.
Once a pothole has formed, it really needs to be taken care of as soon as possible. Why the rush you ask? It’s simple. The pothole will only get infinitely worse over time.
Between weather conditions and the amount of regular traffic, the pothole will grow very quickly and get wider and deeper. It becomes more dangerous to pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles. The earlier you catch the problem, the easier and less expensive the repair will be. Stay on top of potholes in asphalt so the problem doesn’t affect your business’ bottom line in the future.
Once asphalt starts to degrade or damage, if you can catch it soon enough, asphalt patching is the best option. If there is a solid base, surface patching is the most cost-effective way to keep your pavement strong and in one piece. This process begins by cleaning the area to be repaired completely and applying a tack coat to help the new asphalt adhere to the existing surface.
A layer of asphalt is then installed upon the existing surface, the depth that has to be taken off and then added back just depends on your damage and condition. Patching is the most affordable option, but it’s also truly just a temporary patch, you can’t count on it to hold up for 20 years down the road but it will certainly hold it’s own. Patching is great for stretching the lifespan a little before you really need to start considering total replacement.
