Being a responsible home or business owner means getting in front of minor issues on your property before they become larger problems. One of the most proactive steps you can take to protect yourself and your budget is taking the time to check your asphalt driveway paving conditions regularly. This can help you avoid the shock that being unprepared brings. Asphalt pavement is easy to manage and control if you know what to look for and what to expect. Here are the top reasons why you should prepare yourself for asphalt repairs long before they are needed.

Benefits of Asphalt Preparation

Asphalt Pavement Weather Preparedness

New England is notorious for frigid winters and hot summers. This not only affects you but your asphalt pavement as well. In winter, the melted snow can loosen your pavement from the gravel as water seeps below. If temperatures freeze over and create a freeze-thaw cycle, your pavement will harden and crumble. And don’t forget about the summer’s impact on your pavement. Direct exposure to the beaming sun can cause oxidation. During oxidation, your pavement will begin experiencing cracking. These issues can happen quickly and can cause widespread and costly damage if not addressed in a hurry. By preparing your maintenance and repair plan ahead of time, especially one that considers the various needs for different seasons, you can predict and address unnecessary issues. Preventative measures like an asphalt seal coat application can extend your pavement lifespan to avoid replacing an entire parking lot or driveway.

Avoid the Rush for Service

Generally speaking, spring and summer are the best seasons for asphalt paving repairs since the weather is ideal, allowing hot mixes to settle in a more timely fashion. Because many don’t realize this, there are often increased asphalt service requests during the warmer months. Some people may even seek asphalt driveway repair companies to improve their driveways to match their freshly landscaped lawns. If you wait too long, though, you may have to postpone. Asphalt companies are often pre-booked and overbooked throughout the season, leaving those without a plan waiting extended periods. And if your needs are more functional than cosmetic, waiting can lead to more damage (especially if you already waited longer than the experts suggest.)

Customer Safety and Satisfaction

If you are a business owner, you should understand the value of having scheduled parking lot maintenance services. Your ability to provide safe parking that complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act will impress your clients and could also bring in new business. A revamped parking lot also prevents small potholes from spreading into larger ones, which can be a liability if a customer trips and falls or even damages a tire on the neglected pavement. Remember, the experience you provide customers starts from the moment they pull into your parking lot until the time they leave. Those who rely on ADA accommodations will never forget the ease your business’ parking provided for them or their loved ones, and this leaves a lasting impression sure you benefit your business.
