There are many factors that cause any type of pavement to become worn and damaged over time. At Irish Castle Asphalt Paving, we specialize in repairing and replacing damaged asphalt.
Two of the reasons people choose asphalt over other paving options is its affordability and durability. In order to get the most out of your driveway, parking lot, sidewalk, and other black top surfaces, you should repair it when necessary.
Preventing Oxidation and Corrosion
The main reason black top asphalt becomes severely cracked or broken is moisture penetrating to its base foundation. If the asphalt’s surface is not properly maintained with required repairs and a seal coating, then:
The surface will begin to dry out, becoming brittle
The top layer will erode, thus creating visible cracks and loose stones
Moisture seeps through the visible cracks and reaches the base
The base material is shifted by the water which leads to even larger cracks and fissures
Without maintenance, this process will continue until the pavement is completely eroded away.
Exceptional Repairs and Customer Service
Keeping your sealcoating maintained is essential, but it is also important to have cracks sealed and holes filled in. We will gladly repair your worn asphalt, or if the damage is too extensive, completely resurface your paving.
