Why Asphalt Maintenance in the Summer is Essential
You probably understand the consequences of failing to protect your skin from the summer sun. As your skin relies on sunblock for protection, so too does the asphalt on your commercial driveway or parking lot. Despite its durable façade, your asphalt can still be damaged by the heat and UV radiation of the hot summer sun without sealcoating protection. You can rely on this asphalt maintenance service to safeguard it against damage.
Too Hot to Handle: The Repercussions of Neglected Asphalt Maintenance
The dark surface of your pavement makes it more susceptible to damage from constant sun exposure and heat buildup. As the temperature of your asphalt rises, it becomes softer and more vulnerable to damage like gouges and potholes. These conditions also make it easy for paint to lift from the surface of your carefully marked parking lot. As time passes, the internal structure of your parking lot or driveway will break down, and simple maintenance will no longer be enough.
Preserving Your Asphalt with Preventive Maintenance
Because we know preventive asphalt maintenance will ensure your driveway or parking lot withstands the abuse of the summer sun, American Asphalt offers the following services to help you increase the lifespan of your pavement:
