Asphalt deteriorates over time, this is accelerated with neglect and/or poor maintenance and oddly enough infrequent traffic. Over time the asphalt will begin to crack, which creates openings for water to infiltrate the substrate and sub-surface of the asphalt. Water freeze expansion and erosion will cause the asphalt to crack even more creating holes and large gaps in the sub-surface layer. The longer this goes without prevention “alligator” cracks can develop or even more severely large chunks of the asphalt layer can break away creating potholes.
Asphalt Replacement & Patching
When a larger area of the asphalt surface is damaged then the best course is often removal and replacement. Essentially the damaged area is removed and cleaned. The asphalt mix is then played and rolled level. The edges are sealed with crack filler to prevent water from infiltrating the area in the future. Typically the repair will not even be noticeable the next time the parking lot or traffic area is sealed.
