Types of Asphalt Pavement
Pavement has an average life of 20 years depending on conditions. When it comes to pavement vs concrete, pavement wins in warmer climates while concrete works better in cooler temperatures. Both surfaces need maintenance through the course of their lifetime, but pavement does come with certain challenges. Warm-mix asphalt is the most common type of mixture, and cold-mix asphalt is used as a sealing material whenever asphalt is needed. Combined, these two types of mixtures help make asphalt cheaper maintained and lasting for years. Some common maintenance work for asphalt includes the following: potholes, sinkholes, and cracks. Other services we offer are hot crack sealing, line striping, and power washing.
What Causes Pavement to Crack?
Water and traffic are two factors that affect an asphalt surface that experienced damage. Poor drainage causes areas of the surface to be weakened. On top of that, large amounts of traffic pass by the already damaged areas and cause small erosions that lead to potholes or cracks on the surface. Potholes and cracks may not seem like a big deal when they are small, but they can lead to bigger issues. Damaged tires and rims, as well as vehicle misalignment, are only a few examples. Road-related damages cost drivers millions a year. Broken roads lead to broken cars! When cracks form in a road, they should be filled as soon as possible. Crack sealants help absorb the stress a surface has endured. This helps even out area that has experienced concentrated damage.
