How to Plan Asphalt Pothole Repairs This Winter

November, 29, 2020 By CASSIDY PAVING 6 min read
It’s no secret that winters in Massachusetts and the rest of the Northeast are brutal. Of course, we feel it every time we step outside in the winter, but the bitter cold weather, snow, and ice, can wreak havoc on our outdoor assets, including our asphalt driveways and parking lots. Luckily, there are steps you can take to preserve the beauty and safety of your business’s or home’s asphalt by thinking ahead and working with paving experts. With years of experience, Cassidy Paving understands your exact needs. We are local and have seen everything Northeastern winters can throw at us, and have the best state-of-the-art equipment to tackle any job.

How to Preserve Your Asphalt

Because of the quick temperature changes in New England, asphalt that isn’t properly maintained is susceptible to extreme damages. Due to the expansion and contraction of moisture in asphalt, your parking lot or drive is at risk for cracks and potholes. This can leave you property filled with dangerous liabilities for pedestrians and drivers. Not only will you be a legal risk to your potential customers and guests, you will also give a bad first impression to anyone who is about to patronize your business. You can avoid a lot of the asphalt crack repair issues by planning ahead with proper asphalt maintenance. You should sealcoat your asphalt regularly. Coming up with a plan to sealcoat at least every three years can pay for itself after a single harsh winter. You’ll also want to remove standing water and fill in small cracks as they accumulate in the asphalt. Cassidy Paving can easily implement cut and patch repairs just to make sure we prevent them from getting any bigger.

What You Can Do if There Are Already Issues

If you already have to repair potholes, or need to look into parking lot pothole repairs before the snow really comes, there is still hope even if you need to do more than a few patches. For large issues, we can do a full-depth reconstruction or even recycle your asphalt and reuse it to lay it back down and create a parking lot or drive that looks brand new. Either way, Cassidy Paving will always get a full vision of your property and suggest anything we think is necessary to be proactive about pothole issues this winter or to make repairs that need to be done as soon as possible to avoid bigger issues. If it’s simply too late in the year and you have potholes already in your parking lot, we can still come out and look at the damages. From there, we will work with you to make a plan for the first of spring and repair everything as soon as the snow melts. We recommend talking to a paving contractor in the winter to get ahead of the spring rush and so you’re certain to be on the top of their list.
