Asphalt is the preferred material for the construction of 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, the cracks will become potholes and the potholes will turn into craters. Repairing a completely deteriorated asphalt surface is far more expensive than regular and timely asphalt repair. Furthermore, without timely repair, water can enter the subgrades, causing severe pavement failures. The pavement distresses multiply if timely maintenance is not scheduled.
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 the inside-out and have to be replaced. To implement effective repairs, it is important to understand the causes that can lead to asphalt damage:
Extreme heat: Asphalt is more malleable than concrete, making it susceptible to damage under extreme heat that can cause softening, sloughing, pitting and ultimately damage the asphalt under heavy loads.
Extreme cold: Asphalt becomes stronger and harder but brittle under extreme winter conditions. Edges of the asphalt might chip or break off under heavy load.
Standing water: It can easily seep down the asphalt and cause issues like softening, displacement, and cracking.
Groundwater: Groundwater can displace asphalt and its base, leaving you with pits, cracks, collapsing asphalt, and potholing.
UV rays: The sun oxidizes the oil in your asphalt, degrading its ability to glue the asphalt rocks together.
Oil stains: Asphalt is oil-based, but extra oil is no good for your asphalt, especially diesel stains.
