It wasn't that long ago you laid that first asphalt and concrete walkway, but today it just doesn't look the same. In fact, it may be in complete disrepair, and there are often unavoidable reasons for that.
When we lay asphalt for our clients, we take the necessary steps to ensure its longevity, but we can't control old mother nature. It inevitably takes a toll, and then you may be seeing any or all of the following.
During the summer months, the sun's intense heat dries out the asphalt surface and causes it to oxidize. Soon a network of hairline cracks will develop in the surface and open the way for water and wear to further damage your parking lot.
Potholes are caused by the expansion and contraction of water after it has entered into the ground under pavement. Left unchecked they can grow continuously with ongoing traffic and use.
Damaging UV rays, vehicle fluids and water can wreak havoc on your asphalt, fading the color and leaving the surface prone to additional damage from the elements and external factors.
And while all that may seem like a costly proposition to maintain and/or repair, it's not when you consider the alternative. So what do you do?
Ongoing maintenance and timely repair can keep small issues from becoming expensive problems later. They can also increase the life of your concrete and asphalt surfaces and delay or avoid complete replacement.
Well maintained parking lots, driveways and walkways also:
- Increase property values and rents
- Convey your consideration of tenants, clients and visitors to your property
- Prevent trip hazards and falls
- Prevent car damage to suspension and tires
It's clear to see that each of those benefits can contribute to your bottom line. Properly maintaining your property is smart.
We can't keep traffic or the heat of the sun away. But we can lessen its impact.
