Asphalt Repair: How Professionals Do It

Hiring an Asphalt Repair Service Provider

As a business owner, you know that your parking lot is one of the most important parts of your property. When it starts to deteriorate, you have two options: do nothing and let it get worse or fix it now before it gets any worse. Asphalt Repair Holland will go over how professional asphalt repair companies fix these issues so that they don’t become a major issue in the future.

The first thing a professional repair company will do is evaluate the damage. They can use a number of different methods to determine how extensive the repairs should be.

There are two main issues that they look for:

If you have potholes, one option is called cold patching which requires them to cut out and replace only the damaged section as opposed to completely replacing an entire layer or repairing from underneath. The other method is full depth re-paving where they remove all three layers down at least six inches and repave it with new asphalt materials. This provides a much longer lasting solution but costs more money. If there are any cracks in your asphalt (known as faulting) then again we recommend having this professionally repaired by removing and reinstalling fresh material. Depending on the size and location of the faulting, this can cost anywhere from $500 to several thousand dollars.

One thing that many business owners don’t realize is that asphalt repair should be done almost immediately after noticing any kind of problem with it or else you risk further damage down the road. If left untreated for too long cracks will only get worse and potholes will continue to form until they become very difficult (and expensive) to fix.
