Are you a homeowner and not sure of the best way to handle your driveway’s asphalt? This is a common issue, and according to the experts, even the smallest driveways will need care from time to time. If you’ve recently invested in upgrading, sealing, or repairing your residential paving, there are steps to take to make sure that it lasts its full lifecycle. There’s nothing more stressful than unexpected and costly home repairs, and with the right amount of preparation, you can avoid surprises in your asphalt driveway.

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 Plan

Consulting 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: And there could be other services that make sense for your situation. It is also crucial that you work with a company that understands any specifics regarding asphalt construction within your city, neighborhood, and even your homeowner’s association. These are essential guidelines and laws that must be followed prior to any level of repair.
