Asphalt Repair

Westminster Asphalt Repair Contractors

Asphalt is durable and reliable, a reason that it’s a popular choice for roads, driveways, and parking lots. But durable doesn’t mean indefectible, and everything needs to be fixed eventually. Our Westminster asphalt repair team serves both home and business owners throughout Carroll County. 

The Signs Your Asphalt Needs Repair

There are some common telltale indicators that the asphalt needs repair work done. Keep an eye out for signs like these: 

  • Growing Cracks: Initially, tiny cracks may develop due to natural wear and tear or weather changes. However, if left unaddressed, these cracks can expand and spread throughout the pavement, leading to more severe problems.
  • Buckling and Warping: This occurs when the asphalt surface becomes uneven, with sections rising or sinking. Buckling and warping can result from underlying issues, such as poor asphalt paving installation or heavy loads on the pavement. Not only does it compromise the aesthetics, but it also poses a safety risk for pedestrians and vehicles.
  • Faded Color: Over time, asphalt can lose its vibrant color and fade due to exposure to sunlight, harsh weather conditions, and regular use. Faded color is not just a cosmetic issue--it can also be an indication of surface deterioration. When the protective top layer of the asphalt erodes, it leaves the pavement vulnerable to further damage from sun rays, moisture, and chemicals.
  • Drainage Issues: If you notice standing water or poor drainage on the pavement, it could be a sign of underlying problems. Improper grading or damaged drainage systems can lead to water pooling, which weakens the asphalt structure and accelerates deterioration.
  • Sinkage: Sinkage refers to areas of the asphalt surface that have sunken or depressed. This can occur due to poor compaction during installation or underlying soil issues. Sinkage not only affects the aesthetics but also disrupts the functionality of the pavement, causing potential tripping hazards and further damage over time.

Acting quickly when you see these and other signs of damage can allow our team to prevent that damage from widening and perhaps becoming more costly.

DIY Asphalt Maintenance Tips

There are several constructive steps that property owners can take on their own to maintain an asphalt surface. All of these DIY tips may prove helpful: 

  • Sweep and Wash: Regular sweeping and washing of your asphalt surface can help remove debris, dirt, and leaves that can accumulate and cause damage over time. 
  • Fill the Cracks: Small cracks can develop due to weather changes or natural aging. It's important  to address them promptly by filling them with asphalt crack filler. This prevents water from seeping into the cracks and causing further damage.
  • Watch the Water: Ensure proper drainage by clearing any obstructions in gutters and downspouts. It’s also a good idea to fill any low spots where water tends to accumulate to prevent pooling and potential deterioration.
  • Apply a Fresh Sealcoat: Sealcoating your asphalt provides an extra layer of protection against the elements. A sealcoat helps to restore the color and appearance of the pavement while increasing its resistance to cracking and damage.
