When your asphalt needs repair, a paving contractor is the right person to call. Not only does having an expert on hand make the process smoother and quicker, but having one on site also reduces downtime and disruptions to your business operations.
Pavement maintenance and repairs are essential to keep your property looking its best and running optimally. That’s why it’s so critical to get them done before they become too big and expensive to fix. Check out for small paving jobs adelaide.
No matter if your road needs a simple pothole filler or more permanent repair, we offer several options. These include cold-lay asphalt mix that can be applied by hand or using a compactor, as well as semi-permanent repair methods.
Pavement deteriorates over time due to sun, heat and vehicle traffic. But water is the biggest enemy of roads: it seeps in through cracks or around the edge of a street, weakening and breaking down its surface.
Water that freezes and expands during winter can push against and under the pavement, separating it and creating a pothole.
Pothole repair can be an efficient and economical solution. Additionally, it helps prevent larger areas of pavement failure that pose a higher risk for vehicle damage.
Cracks allow moisture penetration from rain, snow, salt and ice which erodes your pavement’s base. This leads to pavement deterioration resulting in potholes and more serious damages to its asphalt.
Pavement that has been crack sealed protects your parking lot, road and driveway from this deterioration, saving you money in the process by delaying costly repairs and extending the life of your asphalt.
Sealing is a method that involves injecting hot sealant into working cracks, such as transverse ones, to stop water intrusion and reduce pavement movement. Once set, the rubberized sealant can expand and contract with temperature changes for flexibility that prevents further cracking.
Routing cracks before sealing offers cleaner edges and creates a reservoir for the sealant, improving material adhesion and doubling its service life. Routing should be done prior to crack sealing in spring and fall when pavement expansion and contraction is most common due to temperature changes.
Sealcoating is the application of a liquid coating to pavement such as roadways, parking lots, driveways and patios. It fills in cracks and chips in asphalt while strengthening it against harsh weather conditions like chemicals, water damage, oil spills or UV rays.
Regular sealcoating can dramatically extend the life of your pavement surfaces. It also shields them from harmful petrochemicals which soften and weaken them, leaving them susceptible to cracking.
The material used in the process is a blend of bituminous or acrylic-based liquids with water silica sand, polymer additives and other fillers and solids. It can be applied to the surface using either a squeegee machine, spray application or by hand.
For optimal effectiveness, applying sunscreen during appropriate weather conditions is key. Ideally, it should be done during spring or fall when temperatures remain above 50 degrees for no less than 24 hours before and after application.
Resurfacing is an economical way to extend the life of asphalt pavement. It can also be used for repair cracks, cosmetic improvements to roads or parking lots, and even adding curb appeal.
Resurfaced surfaces are more durable and reliable than old asphalt, offering decades of protection for roads, driveways, and parking lots. Furthermore, resurfacing makes your asphalt surface safer to drive on by making it smoother to grip.
The process begins by scraping away the top layer of asphalt. After that, workers will inspect the area and correct any issues with its underlying foundation.
Resurfacing is the ideal compromise between light-duty patching and full replacement. If your pavement has reached 20 years, has few deep or wide cracks, and is in generally good condition, this could be a suitable option.
