Maine weather can be extremely hard on asphalt. If left unmaintained, cracks and potholes will start to form. If this is happening to your paved area, Commercial Paving of Maine professionals are trained and ready to make the needed repairs to get your asphalt back in shape.
Harsh Weather Weakens Asphalt
You’ll notice that cracks and potholes start to appear during the late winter months, continuing through spring into early summer. The primary reason for asphalt degradation is excessive water from the freezing and thawing weather cycle. Cold weather stresses asphalt pavement, making weak, which creates cracks and potholes.
Repairing Asphalt Will Prevent Further Damage
If you have cracks and potholes in your parking lot or driveway, Commercial Paving of Maine recommends having it repaired as soon as possible. Cracks and potholes let water into the sub-surface of your asphalt pavement. Once this happens, additional damage can happen quickly.

Healthy pavement means a maintenance plan needs to be in place to regularly inspect and fix small problems before they get out of hand.
