As soon as an asphalt pavement is constructed, it starts the process
of deterioration. If it is properly constructed, of course, it will need
very little, if any, maintenance within the first couple of years.
if there are some soft spots in the pavement or if maintenance is
deferred for a period of years, potholes or alligator cracking (which
indicates failure of the base layers as well as the surface layers of
the asphalt) will need to be addressed.
In the old days, asphalt repairs consisted merely of cutting out the
deteriorated area, re-compacting the sub base, and installing a full
depth asphalt patch, or crushed stone and asphalt. While this is still a
viable option for many projects, new technology has given the
progressive paving contractor many more options. We can now tailor a
repair program specifically for your parking lot, keeping downtime to a
minimum and creating the greatest cost benefit ratio for you.
Pavement Network professional has at his disposal a full range of
repair options, from basic remove and replace, to partial depth patching
using milling machines, to infrared patching using extreme heat to give
the asphalt new life. Of course it takes a trained eye to know when
each of these techniques is best for the job. Call your Pavement Network professional for a free estimate.
