Cracks Kill Tires: The Importance of Asphalt Maintenance

the importance of asphalt maintenance

Damaged pavement, regardless of where it is, can cause all kinds of hassles. Depending on the material of the pavement, cracking can be so bad that vehicles are susceptible to tire damage, especially at high traveling speeds. Here is a look at two of the most common areas where paving repair or replacement is often needed.

Parking Lot Paving

Whether you are a customer using a parking lot or the business owner who maintains it, we all know how frustrating damaged asphalt, or in some cases concrete, can be. Oftentimes cracks and potholes are hard to see when searching for a place to park. For those unfortunate people, this can often lead to a mishap with your vehicle’s tires. Parking lot paving jobs are among the most frequently scheduled services due to wear and tear from high traffic volume and the need to keep businesses looking clean and professional. Every business knows that first impressions are everything and a customer’s experience starts in the parking lot. Damaged asphalt or concrete looks ugly, unprofessional and can, in some cases, cause consumers to question the ethics and quality of a product or service.

Driveway Paving

In most cases, people travel in and out of their driveway multiple times a day. While it may not seem like enough traffic to affect the rate of deterioration, over time it adds up, especially in households with more than one car. Repaving a cracked or damaged driveway is important and can prevent tire damage. In addition, damaged and unkempt driveways look sloppy and can even affect the value of your house as well as the surrounding homes in your community. At the first sign of a cracked or damaged driveway, call your local paving company and have the damage evaluated. In most cases, cracks can be filled and asphalt seal can be sprayed to avoid deterioration. Paving a driveway is a relatively quick job compared to larger paving projects, and in most cases your driveway can be used within a day or two of completion.
