Asphalt pavement, like skin, can show signs of aging and deterioration due to exposure to natural elements and stress. This can result in cracks, discolorations, and uneven sections that are dangerous to drivers and bring down property values.

How Professional Pavement Repair Combats Damage
Our experts offer repair methods based on four categories of asphalt damage, ranging from mild to severe.
Mild Surface Damage
The elements aren’t kind to parking lots, roads, and driveways. UV rays and oxidation weaken the chemical bonds in the asphalt, causing deterioration. In addition, water can cause cracks when it freezes inside the pavement layers. Luckily, paving professionals have services to reverse and prevent this kind of surface damage.
- Crack Filling – We seal cracks with high-quality rubberized filling compounds so they don’t worsen.
- Sealcoating – Recommended after crack filling, sealcoating creates a protective barrier over a paved surface.
More Serious Damage
As mentioned, water is a big culprit for pavement breakdown. It can soak into the paving materials, getting into the various layers. Water expands and breaks down the pavement when it freezes, causing severe cracks.
- Patching – When deterioration is localized, it can be cut away, and more asphalt poured as a patch.
- Infrared Repairs – This method uses infrared heat to melt the pavement to ensure seamless repairs.
Pavement at the End of Its Lifespan
Unfortunately, asphalt has a lifespan, usually around 25 years. There is compounding damage despite regular maintenance, and the repairs that have already been completed are no longer viable. Property owners with old pavement have some options:
- Resurfacing – Removing the top layer with special machines and replacing it creates a fresh, smooth surface.
- Replacement – When more repairs aren’t enough, we can demolish and repave your property.
