Improve Your Asphalt Driveway’s Lifespan
There are a number of things you can do that will help your asphalt driveway to last longer. They include:
- Choose an experienced and reputable asphalt paving company. You want your asphalt driveway installed correctly, so you’ll want to choose a company that has the experience and reputation to stay in business year after year. Going with the company that gives you the cheapest bid may very well mean that company may no longer be in business when problems start to occur with your asphalt driveway in a year or two.
- Maintain your asphalt driveway. An asphalt driveway is low maintenance, but there are still a few steps you should be taking. Clean any stains or debris on your driveway as soon as possible. Most importantly, make sure to have your asphalt driveway seal coated ever two or three years or so. This is where a thin protective coating is added to your asphalt driveway. It reseals your driveway and protects it from the elements. Another option down the line is adding a new overlay to your asphalt driveway; this is where the top layer is removed and replaced, renewing your asphalt to like new.
- Take care of problems right away. Little problems become big problems if you don’t take care of them in a timely manner. Make sure to fix issues like cracks, spots with standing water after rain, and crumbling asphalt as soon as they appear.
