Have you been wondering whether or not it’s time to have your driveway re-asphalted? Are you looking for someone you can trust to handle your re-asphalting in Vacaville and the surrounding area? For decades, we’ve offered re-asphalting services among many, many other asphalt services. That said, there are some who aren’t sure whether or not it’s time to have asphalt on their driveways dealt with. Below are some of the signs to look for to determine whether or not it’s time to reach out for re-asphalting services.
How Long Has it Been?
When’s the last time the asphalt in your driveway was replaced? Can you even remember? If you think it’s been twenty years, then you definitely should have them re-asphalted. Two decades is a very long time. If it’s been that long, then reaching out to an experienced asphalt company is imperative. That said, you certainly aren’t recommended to wait until it’s been 20 years to call an asphalt company. Rather, if it’s been two decades, you should contact an asphalt company no matter how great your pavement looks.
How Does the Pavement Look?
With that in mind, ask yourself how your pavement looks? Do you see cracks in the pavement? Are they significant cracks, almost that come in a shape reminiscent of an alligator? If you answered “yes” to the last question, that’s a very bad sign for your pavement. Indeed, so-called “alligator cracking” is something that tends to occur when the deterioration in your foundation is quite advanced. As this cracking is a result of extensive damage, it often can’t be filled in in the same way. If you have real problems with cracks, it’s worth reaching out to us.
Do You See Any Water?
There’s nothing wrong with a bit of water on your driveway after rain, but, if your pavement has sunken, if the water is “standing,” (“not moving,”) then that too is a sign that your asphalt is weak and needs to be dealt with. Unfortunately, that water doesn’t just “sit there” when it’s standing. Instead, it can seep into your foundation, ultimately leading to lasting damage to your asphalt that could be permanent. Enormous potholes that collect water, large cracks where water pools, and similar concerns should be dealt with.
