It is never too early to plan to have a trusted and reliable asphalt repair contractor like Cassidy Paving help with your asphalt pavement maintenance. You may find yourself needing repairs for your asphalt residential driveway and even your commercial paving lots if you are a property manager. Just think of the physical stress our driveways and roads across New England face with the usual winter weather. Snow and ice are a big culprit for asphalt repair. You might already have your preferred snow clearing services saved in your phone’s “Favorites”, but have you considered having a preferred contact for your favorite asphalt paving contractor?
What to Know About Hiring Asphalt Contractors
Potholes and the Causes
Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire alike are no strangers to harsh winters, and it is always great to have a plan in place for the damage that can be caused by Mother Nature each year. If you notice your driveway beginning to crack and peel, it is time to seek asphalt driveway crack repair services. As the colder months set in and snowstorms hit our areas, it is the standard to reach for salt to help provide safe driving conditions. Consequently, excessive amounts of salt that we use to clear our driveways and roads can also cause the pavement to deteriorate. According to Drexel University, the usage of salt can increase freeze-thaw damage. Once the snow melts into water then becomes frozen, that ice can expand its volume by up to 9 percent, causing an unstable foundation in the pavement from the ground.
The Price for Prolonged Repair
By not tending to initial signs of wear and tear in your pavement, you may find yourself having to repair large cracks in an asphalt driveway or even worse, having to focus your attention on damage caused by asphalt potholes of various sizes. Even after the potholes develop, vehicles will continue to travel back and forth across these surfaces. The once small potholes have now not only become a nightmare to the pavement around it but also to your personal and business vehicles. This is a liability you don’t want to bring with you into the springtime. Those expanding potholes will cause the pavement around it to crack further, and your vehicle may soon face problems ranging from punctured tires, a damaged exhaust system, steering system misalignment, and even engine damage!
At this point, not only are you paying more when you could have addressed the problem early on, but you now have motor vehicle repairs to factor into your budget. Simply put: time is money, so repair early.
