Repair or Replace?
Over time, asphalt begins to show wear and tear. If you notice any signs of damage, you might be asking yourself: should I repair or replace my asphalt? The answer to this questions depends on a few factors, such as the age of your asphalt and the extent of the damage.
If your asphalt is fairly new and the damage is minimal, it’s likely that all you need are some repairs. However, if your asphalt is getting close to 20 years old, or the damage to your asphalt is extensive, it’s likely that you will need to replace your asphalt altogether.

Potholes vs. Sinkholes
The main difference between a pothole and a sinkhole is that a pothole begins on the surface, while a sinkhole starts under the surface. Sinkholes tend to be larger and more difficult to repair than potholes. However, potholes can expand and cause quite a bit of damage as well. That’s why it’s important to fix any signs of asphalt damage as soon as possible.
Asphaly overlay is when a new section of asphalt is added on top of an existing layer of asphalt. It is essentially a patch repair for asphalt. Asphalt overlays are useful for temporary repairs in problem areas.
The Lifespan of Asphalt
The typical asphalt surface will have a lifespan of approximately 20 years. A general rule for the industry is that an asphalt surface should be paved if over 25 percent of the asphalt surface is cracked or broken. If you are not sure of whether or not to seal or pave, call an APS representative for an assessment.
