Here are some frequently asked questions & answers about our asphalt and concrete services.

The roads we drive on are most commonly made of asphalt. Asphalt is derived from natural crude oils that give it a dark, sticky texture yet durable enough to withstand heavy traffic loads.

You can prolong the lifespan of your asphalt parking lot through routine maintenance including crack filling, seal coating, line restriping, and more. Reach out to our professionals to see what maintenance services your commercial asphalt parking lot could benefit from.

Routine maintenance comes after many years of wear and tear, as properly installed asphalt parking lots should last anywhere from 10-30 years, delivering a solid return on your investment. However, It’s crucial to choose a company to install new asphalt with tried and true results—see our gallery to see our beautifully completed asphalt installation projects.

The time it takes for crack filling to dry will depend on the weather, the temperature of the ground, and the size of the crack. With these factors, it could take anywhere from a few minutes up to 24 hours before the crack filling dries.

There are a couple of factors that cause asphalt to deteriorate including:

  1. Water: Rainwater or runoff seeps through the cracks of asphalt, damaging its base layer.
  2. Heavy traffic: 18-wheelers and large trucks with heavy weights will gradually wear down asphalt surfaces.
  3. Poor soil: poor quality soil around asphalt pavement can shift and settle, leading to cracks and structural instability over time.

We recommend seal coating asphalt every 2-3 years, depending on the level of traffic and exposure to weather conditions. Regular seal coating will protect asphalt from damage caused by UV rays, water, and chemicals, ensuring a longer lifespan and maintaining a smooth, attractive surface.

The best time of year to seal coat your paved surfaces is between May and October when temperatures are moderate and precipitation is minimal. Seal coating in the winter increases the chances of frozen ground or rain interfering with the process.

Although it’s possible to complete asphalt repairs or paving in cold or rainy weather, the process is best performed in dry conditions. Paving in warmer temperatures allows for asphalt to adhere and dry whereas rainy weather can delay the paving process and cause potential issues with the final result.

Concrete offers several benefits, including durability, low maintenance, and versatility. It is resistant to fire, water, and pests, making it a long-lasting choice for various applications. Additionally, concrete can be customized with different finishes and colors to match your design preferences.
