As time passes, asphalt parking lots, driveways, and roadways all start showing signs of wear-and-tear. Cracking on the surface is often the first way you know it’s time to get serious about preventive maintenance. Proper attention to new and/or worsening cracks in your asphalt surface is crucial to extending the life of the pavement and saving money in future repair costs.
Crack sealing is a cost-effective preventative maintenance practice for all asphalt pavement surfaces. Routine crack sealing wards off further pavement deterioration by keeping water from seeping into and damaging the base or sub-base of the asphalt. Crack sealing also prevents debris from making its way into open cracks while preserving the pavement surrounding the cracks.
By addressing the need for asphalt repairs as soon as you notice deterioration, you’re delaying the need for expensive pavement resurfacing and significantly saving on future costs.
