Benefits of Asphalt Crack Repair for Residential Driveways
Water is among the worst culprits when it comes to causing damage to driveways: once water makes its way beneath the surface of asphalt, it can wear down the driveway’s foundation. If the water freezes it can cause heaving, which causes cracks to form. Once that starts to happen, the cracks will collect debris and dirt and permit weed growth to appear – and the roots of the weeds can lead to even more signs of decay. Repairing driveway cracks before they turn into deep potholes is the most sensible thing to do – plus it also saves on money by prolonging the lifespan of your residential driveway or lot.
When Should I Call Black Pearl for Residential Driveway Sealcoating or Crack Filler Solutions?
Is your residential driveway starting to show cracks, discoloration and other signs of asphalt deterioration? Following the winter season – particularly one that experienced periods of severe cold – the natural thawing process can result in blacktop pavement forming cracks and showing decay. This is particularly true for asphalt surfaces that have not been professionally sealcoated. As we mentioned above, the key to preserving asphalt paved surfaces is to fill cracks as soon as they appear. Delaying repairs will only result in even more damage and perhaps the need for total asphalt replacement.
In some cases asphalt cracks can form as a result of a substandard driveway foundation, or if the layer of asphalt is not thick enough or was not blended correctly at the time it was applied. Soil movement, heavy vehicle traffic, invasive roots from plants and trees, as well as yearly freeze/thaw cycles are also common causes of asphalt breaking apart. With annual crack filling services by our experienced team, you can prolong the lifespan of your driveway and keep it looking good.
