New asphalt in the fall

As the manager of a public park or city, you are probably aware that asphalt services are most common in the spring and summer. But fall is also an excellent time to get your park’s maintenance plan in order and do any asphalt repair and sealing before winter rolls in. Because of its brisk temperatures, fall is the perfect time for the public to get out and enjoy their town’s parks and outdoor spaces. Therefore, you have a unique requirement to keep these areas in usable condition. From an asphalt paving perspective, here are the best things you can do to keep your park’s asphalt clean and maintained this fall.

How to Maintain Asphalt

Upkeep with Proper Cleaning

One of the best things you can do to keep your park’s asphalt paving in good shape year-round is to have a cleaning schedule. Asphalt road paving, which includes walking trails in parks, requires frequent and unique cleaning methods to keep the accumulation of dirt and grime to a minimum. Especially in a park setting, your pavement may often have an excess of dirt, leaves, limbs, and natural debris that piles up. Not only does decomposition happen with organic debris like leaves that speeds up pavement deterioration, but they can also act as an abrasive substance that erodes the blacktop sealcoating. Over time, these can cause significant deterioration, such as asphalt potholes.

Schedule an Inspection

It can be much easier to get an inspection scheduled in the paving off-season. Because most asphalt paving contractors complete the big jobs in the summertime, fall is reserved for inspections and planning asphalt maintenance services. One way to ensure that your park’s paving stays usable is to have it inspected at least once a year. Your asphalt maintenance company will check the condition of the sealcoat, the curbs, and the drainage and take a specialized approach to detect cracks or other signs of degradation. Sometimes it can be hard to spot issues in paving with the untrained eye. Because of this, to protect your city investment and keep pedestrians safe, you must work with professionals to address problems with your park’s pavement as soon as possible.

Planning for Repairs

Often, an inspection will result in an asphalt paving repair recommendation. The key to repairs is that you should have them done even when the job is small. For cities and towns specifically, frequent repairs are the best way to be a good steward of taxpayer dollars. Small and routine repairs keep the costs low and the disruption to your public areas minimal. You can expect at least yearly crack filling and sealcoating every 1 to 3 years from when your park’s paving is installed. With the right help, municipalities should find it easy to follow the maintenance plan for walking trails and other park asphalt surfaces.
