Is the asphalt on your Lakewood property visibly damaged? The spot may be due for an asphalt resurfacing or replacement. Between these two methods, which one is more suitable for your situation? Contact your local residential or commercial paving company for an assessment and a determination of the best course of action.
What Is Replacement?
If the asphalt is damaged beyond repair, then you may need an entire replacement. In areas like parking lots and driveways that receive a lot of vehicle and foot traffic, you may need to replace the asphalt every 20 years or so.
What Is Resurfacing?
Another option is resurfacing the asphalt. Under this method, technicians remove the upper-most layer of the asphalt and pave it over with new material. Resurfacing is possible when the asphalt foundation is still in solid condition. Resurfacing will prolong the life of the surface by 10 to 15 years.
When Is Resurfacing Possible?
You may be able to resurface the asphalt under the following conditions:
- 70% or more of the asphalt is still in good condition
- the foundation is relatively undamaged
- the asphalt is under 20 years old
- there are no cracks that exceed a quarter of an inch in width
- the cracks are relatively shallow and don’t reach the foundation
