Has the asphalt on your Lakewood property incurred a crack or fracture? The area may need an asphalt resurfacing or replacement. Between these two procedures, which one is more appropriate for your needs? Contact your residential or commercial paving service for an evaluation and to determine the remedy.
What Is Replacement?
If the asphalt is badly damaged and unrepairable, then you might require a whole replacement. In areas like parking lots and driveways that get daily car and foot traffic, you may need to replace the asphalt every two to three decades.
What Is Resurfacing?
Another remedy is resurfacing the asphalt. Under this procedure, technicians remove the top-most layer of the asphalt and pave it over with fresh material. Resurfacing is plausible when the asphalt’s base is still in relatively good shape. Resurfacing will extend the surface’s life by upwards of 15 years.
When Is Resurfacing Possible?
You may be able to resurface the asphalt under these conditions:
- 70% or more of the asphalt is in healthy shape
- the foundation is largely intact
- the asphalt is no more than 20 years old
- there are no cracks that are more than one-fourth of an inch in width
- the cracks aren’t that deep and don’t reach the foundation
