WHY IS MY ASPHALT DAMAGED?

Asphalt has remained one of the most popular paving materials in the U.S. for decades. This smart surface choice is cost-effective, adapts well to a wide range of projects and looks great. Regular asphalt maintenance will help preserve the beautiful look and stable surface of your project. 

 

Here are some of the most common causes of asphalt damage:

Lack of Maintenance

Sealcoating is an essential component of proper asphalt maintenance. Sealcoating fills surface voids, protecting against sun and water exposure and slowing the oxidation of oil. The cost of sealcoating always pays off in the long run by prolonging life of your asphalt surfaces.

UV Radiation

UV rays have a detrimental effect on asphalt. Sunlight oxidizes oil that collects in asphalt which weakens the materials bond within the product. Although it’s nearly impossible to avoid the effects of sun in Southern California, proper sealing and maintenance of your asphalt will ensure your surfaces last a long time with safety and uncompromised quality.

Chemical Staining

Although asphalt is an oil based material, additional oil and other chemicals will have a detrimental effect on your new surfaces. Unaddressed standing oil will soften asphalt surfaces, resulting in accelerated decay and decomposition of asphalt. Damaged asphalt is vulnerable to crumbling and cracking at a significantly higher rate than unaffected asphalt.

Trees Roots

Tree roots have the potential to compromise the structural and aesthetic integrity of asphalt surfaces. Tree roots grow shockingly quickly and commonly extend far beyond the actual radius of your tree canopy. Mitigating underlying roots is difficult, as they are virtually undetectable on the surface. Left unaddressed, roots cause extensive damage and create unwanted hazards in hardscape environments.

Extreme Temperatures

Although more malleable than concrete, extreme heat or cold can affect the surface of asphalt, making it susceptible to sloughing, pitting, cracking and bruising. Be aware that when experiencing extreme temperature variations your asphalt is more vulnerable to damage. This is a good time to avoid heavy loads or use of tools and objects that can scratch and dent softened asphalt like automotive jacks, lifts etc.

Water

Both standing water and groundwater create risk for asphalt surfaces. Seepage causes softening, displacement and cracking and groundwater can actually displace asphalt and it’s base, triggering more significant issues like cracks, collapsing asphalt and potholes. Awareness of water-related issues allows your asphalt partner to recommend repairs that support adequate drainage and minimize the risk of water-related damage.

Heavy Loads

Excessively heavy loads have the potential to damage asphalt surfaces, particularly on hot or cold days. Borders and seams of asphalt are particularly susceptible to the negative effects of excess weight. Leaving heavy loads in areas for extended periods of time increases the risk of permanent impacts to your asphalt surface, including indentation, cracks and chipping.
