What to Know About Asphalt Maintenance
Why Have a Maintenance Plan?You might not see why an asphalt paving and maintenance plan is worth it for your small driveway. There could be some confusion between maintenance and making repairs as needed. But, especially in the New England area, maintaining what you already have is critical for your budget. Repairing as you go will mean that you’re calling a driveway paving contractor more often and spending more. When you’re only making the bare minimum repairs when needed, you’re more likely to have deterioration beneath the blacktop. This is where major problems happen, like drainage failure and shifts in the subbase. Maintenance plans are essential because your asphalt driveway contractor can see early warning signs and repair them well before they spread during preventative service calls.
What to Include in Your PlanConsulting with your asphalt maintenance company should be the first step in making a preventative maintenance schedule. Experts can evaluate your driveway, tell you what the recommendations are, how often service is needed, and answer your specific questions. Some typical asphalt services include in residential maintenance plans are:
- Crack filling
- Asphalt pothole repair
- Pressure washing
