Performing regular preventative maintenance throughout the fall will help you save money, enhance the overall appearance of your property, and extend the life of your existing asphalt during winter. Snow and ice can cause several problems for your driveway, sidewalk, or parking lot. Here are a few tips to help protect your asphalt pavement just in time for fall.
Fall Asphalt Maintenance
1. Inspect Asphalt Surface
During inspection, look for cracks or potholes in your asphalt surface. You can prevent cracking pavement, further damage from water and sun exposure, which will help eliminate the spread of cracks and future costly repairs.
2. Evaluate the Aesthetic
If you notice your asphalt looking warn, it may be time to perform certain treatments, including seal coating. Without proper sealcoating and maintenance, the original protection of concrete could be severely compromised after only a few years.
3. Drain the Asphalt
Snow and ice can trigger negative consequences for your asphalt. Water invades small fissures in the surfaces, causing damage all the way down to the foundation. Ensure that you’re properly managing water run-off to prevent further water penetration damage.
