Maine weather can be tough on the asphalt. If left unmaintained, cracks and potholes start to form. If this happened to your paved area, Commercial Paving of Maine professionals are trained and ready to make the needed asphalt repair 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 and early summer. The primary reason for asphalt degradation is excessive water from the freezing and thawing weather cycle. Cold weather stresses asphalt pavement, making it weak, creating cracks and potholes.
Repairing Asphalt Prevents 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 occur quickly.
Repairing cracks and potholes before additional damage occurs saves you money and extends the life of your pavement. Healthy pavement means a maintenance plan needs to be in place to regularly inspect and fix small problems before they get out of hand. Contact us to discuss your maintenance plan.
