Causes of Asphalt Failure
Assuming proper asphalt installation, parking lots and roadways should last for decades, but exposure to the elements (air, water, and sun) breaks down pavement. The main cause of most pavement failure is the penetration of water through porous layers down to the base layer. Water separates petroleum-based asphalt binders from the aggregates within, causing points of weakness within the pavement. Air can also cause asphalt failure through oxidation, or the process of oxygen breaking down chemicals within the asphalt mixture. UV rays also break down the surface layer, leading to loss of flexibility and opening up the pavement to water penetration.
How Asphalt Repair Services Fix Pavement Damage
Whatever the condition of your asphalt pavement is, if you want to keep your overall costs down, you will need to implement a plan to repair and maintain your asphalt pavement before it has to be replaced! Here’s how asphalt repair methods address different types of pavement damage.
If asphalt cracks are untreated, they get worse and eventually affect the structural integrity of the pavement. A reputable paving company will be able to fill in cracks with high quality product that will seal it over to guard against further water penetration.
Asphalt Patching & Pothole Repair
When the damage to your parking lot or roadway has already gone deep into the pavement layers, it needs more serious asphalt repair processes. Asphalt patching involves cutting around a damaged area, then replacing just that area with new pavement. Potholes can be repaired by patching as well, or cleaned out and filled in with asphalt before being compacted.
Asphalt Milling & Resurfacing
When there’s widespread damage over the surface of the pavement, it’s time for asphalt resurfacing. With this process, special milling machines grind down and remove upper pavement layers so new asphalt can be poured.
