Regular asphalt maintenance prolongs the life of your asphalt pavement and protects your initial investment by minimizing the cost of repairs that will ultimately be necessary, one way or another, to preserve the asphalt. Regular maintenance is significantly less expensive in the long term than having to more frequently perform major repairs such as removal and replacement.
Asphalt deteriorates over time because the asphaltic binder that holds the loose stones of the asphalt together breaks down due to wear and tear and exposure to the elements. This breakdown causes cracks and eventually potholes to form in the asphalt surface. Left untreated, these problems can become much worse, affecting the base and subbase of the asphalt and weakening the entire pavement structure. Once these serious problems occur, the lighter maintenance procedures are no longer an option. Total removal and replacement eventually becomes necessary. The more basic asphalt maintenance and repair procedures, such as sealcoating, crack sealing and patch repair, take care of the initial problems before they get worse and more expensive.
