Resurfacing Old and Worn Asphalt

Asphalt pavement can last for several decades if it is properly installed, but even great pavement will need to be resurfaced eventually. With us at Irish Castle Asphalt Paving, we can examine your driveway, sidewalk, or patio and determine if resurfacing is the best option for your situation.

Typically, if 25 percent or more of the surface area of your pavement is damaged, resurfacing is recommended rather than repairs. The process is easy and affordable. In many situations, a new surface is poured over a patched and repaired existing surface without needing to tear-up the old.

Signs You Should Request Resurfacing

There are many indicators that it is time for fresh asphalt. Some of the signs are:

  • Cracks in the surface
  • Loose rocks
  • Large visible stones
  • Corrosion
  • Dips or divots
  • Potholes

Determining the Source of Damage

If your pavement is relatively new but has significant cracks or other structural defects, you may need to consider improving the foundation that your pavement was built upon. Rebuilding and paving from the ground up is a different process than resurfacing. A complete overhaul is more expensive, but will prevent you from needing to have your pavement resurfaced frequently.
