As an asphalt paving customer, you have a unique responsibility to keep your lot(s) safe and functional all year long. Cassidy Paving uses the winter as planning time for the upcoming spring since cold weather is not optimal for successful asphalt paving services. You should also take this time to take inventory of your property’s needs and the condition of your driveway, parking lot, or any other asphalt surface. Planning ahead is sure to save time and money when you can get our team out in warmer weather. Here are the top considerations to take when planning your next asphalt paving repair.
What Asphalt Repairs You Need in Winter
Have you noticed any cracks in your asphalt paving? If these cracks were small at the beginning of the winter you should be prepared for them to have increased in size due to the Massachusetts freeze-thaw cycle. Asphalt Magazine details several types of cracks so that there is a better understanding of the type of repairs needed. The types of cracks you may see are:
Although each of these repairs requires a specialized treatment plan, Cassidy Paving can come out early to access the cracks and give you a better idea of what to expect over the winter.
Another byproduct of winter is the appearance and acceleration of asphalt potholes. If you have weakened asphalt going into an intense freeze, you can expect further weakening as the temperatures fluctuate. An already existent pothole will also become larger as the months pass into spring. Depending on the overall condition of your asphalt, our experts can help prepare you for spot patching or in some cases, a total replacement. Additionally, to help you keep costs down, we can follow the reclamation process to reuse the removed asphalt.
If there are issues with your asphalt pavement, but overall it’s in good condition, you may need to prepare for the possibility of lot milling. This asphalt process is very common after winter and most issues can be completely resolved when using the proper equipment to remove the damaged layers of asphalt. This allows you to save both time and money since you aren’t replacing the underlying layers.
Don’t Forget to Seal
If you have prepared yourself for extensive asphalt repairs during the warm months, you will also want to consider adding a sealcoat to your service. Sealcoating is provided as an add-on with other Cassidy Paving services in order to keep your asphalt in its best condition for as long as possible.
