Do you need help from a professional Chatham paving company? No paving project lasts forever because even the best asphalt needs maintenance. As soon as your Chatham paving company leaves you with a freshly laid asphalt pavement, time begins the process of wearing it down. Below are the top signs your parking lot needs service from a professional:
Do You Need a Chatham Paving Company?
Cracks: All paving wear and tear starts with a crack. Cracks in asphalt are primarily caused by the effects of the environment: sun exposure, moisture, and ground movement. Once a crack starts, moisture invades and contributes to making it worse by freezing and thawing.
Oil spots: Oil spots cause your asphalt to ‘unbind’ because oil reacts with the materials that combine to give asphalt its strength. An asphalt sealant will protect your parking lot from the effects of oil drips from parked vehicles.
Raveling: This is when stones are coming out of the asphalt surface, giving the surface of your parking lot a very rough texture. An asphalt sealant will help stop this if the degradation is minor, but in severe cases, Chatham paving company services may be necessary.
Grass or weeds growing through: Grass can actually cause a lot of problems with your asphalt. Before a parking lot is coated or cracks are filled, the grass beneath must be destroyed.
Base problems: If you see standing puddles on your parking lot, that’s usually a sign of a problem with the base. Water is asphalt’s biggest enemy and standing water will eventually destroy the asphalt where it sits.
