What Happens When You Neglect Asphalt Maintenance & Repair

Asphalt is preferred for constructing roads and pavements due to its durability, strength, and highly resistant nature. However, that doesn’t mean that it won’t begin to wear out over time. If timely repairs are not performed, cracks will become potholes and potholes will turn into craters. Repairing a completely deteriorated asphalt surface is far more expensive than regular, timely repair. Furthermore, water can enter the subgrades without timely repair, causing severe pavement failures. The pavement distresses multiply if timely maintenance is not scheduled.

Damage Caused to Asphalt

Asphalt is known for its longevity but is constantly subjected to conditions that cause damage. If these damages are left untreated, the asphalt can deteriorate completely from inside to out and must be replaced. To implement effective repairs, it is important to understand the causes that can lead to asphalt damage:

  • Extreme heat: Asphalt, being more malleable than concrete, is prone to damage under intense heat. This can result in softening, sloughing, pitting, and structural damage, especially under heavy loads.

  • Extreme cold: Asphalt becomes stronger but more brittle in extremely cold conditions. The edges may chip or break off under heavy loads, making them susceptible to damage.

  • Standing water: The penetration of standing water into the asphalt can lead to issues like softening, displacement, and cracking, compromising the integrity of the surface.

  • Groundwater: Groundwater has the potential to displace both asphalt and its base, causing problems such as pits, cracks, collapsing asphalt, and the formation of potholes.

  • Oxidation: Fresh asphalt, initially sporting a black charcoal colour that flexes under varying traffic loads, undergoes oxidation when exposed to oxygen. This results in a fading colour, turning the asphalt from black charcoal to gray. Additionally, the breakdown of asphalt cement reduces flexibility, leading to cracks under vehicle loads.

  • UV rays: Sunlight contributes to oil oxidation in asphalt, diminishing its ability to bind the asphalt rocks together and gradually affecting its structural integrity.

  • Construction work: Regular hammering on asphalt surfaces during construction can cause cracks and breaks.

  • Oil stains: While asphalt is oil-based, excess oil, especially diesel stains, can harm its health, impacting its longevity and appearance.
