Clean, smooth asphalt says a lot of things about a place. Broken pavement – with cracks, bumps and potholes – creates an entirely different impression.
But just as important, there is a strong functional need for intact, smooth, pothole-free driveways and parking areas. Not only does clean pavement allow unencumbered travel, it can prevent losses. Fewer tire blowouts, damaged car axels and trip-fall injuries place less liability on those parties responsible for its asphalt repair upkeep. If the property is up for sale or rent, broken asphalt can earn a negative mark in a buyer´s checklist. Asphalt repair can help a lot.
Problems begin with small cracks, and they increase with time. These cracks permit water to penetrate underlayment, which leads to additional damage. The best asphalt repair solution is to fix cracks in asphalt and potholes early.
Yet it doesn´t make sense to completely repave a parking lot where problems exist on a small percent of the pavement. This is why asphalt repair is not only economical, it is far more practical.
