Many people believe that autumn is the best season of the year. The leaves are turning beautiful shades of orange and red, temperatures are neither too hot nor too cold and the slight nip in the morning air serves as a reminder that the year is quickly drawing to a close. Soon, however, autumn will yield to winter. If your asphalt pavement is not ready for the snow and ice that winter will bring, you could find yourself facing a substantial asphalt crack repair bill when spring arrives.
Crack Repair Is Vital for Asphalt Maintenance -Prepare for Winter
If you do nothing else this fall, you should have all cracks in your asphalt pavement repaired. Cracks will worsen over the winter due to the freeze/thaw cycle. In addition, water will leak through the cracks and weaken the foundation. If the foundation suffers, the condition of your pavement will suffer. Depressions can form, the pavement may develop alligator cracking and potholes will be more plentiful. Furthermore, cracks increase the likelihood that the blade of a snowplow could catch on the edges of the crack and tear out a significant chunk of your pavement.
Crack Repair Is Fast and Economical
When you have an asphalt professional repair the cracks in your pavement, you will encounter minimal disruption as the process is quite fast, and the area can often be opened to traffic immediately. Compared to the cost of resurfacing your pavement, crack filling is also extremely economical. However, you should ensure that your contractor has the expertise to repair the cracks correctly. There are a variety of filler materials that can be used to repair cracks in asphalt pavement, but not every type of material is ideal for all types of cracks or all types of pavement. For example, parking lots and pedestrian areas may require a different filler material than the type that is used to repair cracks on a busy interstate.
