Why You Should Fill Driveway Cracks

Asphalt is a durable material, but even great asphalt driveways are likely to develop cracks over time. Dealing with them promptly is the best way to maintain the integrity of your driveway. Here’s a look at why asphalt repairs are important.

Asphalt Crack Filling Calgary Helps Prevent Moisture Damage

When small cracks appear in the asphalt, they allow moisture to penetrate the surface. The water can then work its way down to the subgrade; if that water freezes, it will expand and create new cracks on the surface of the driveway. Water freezing in existing cracks also expands and makes the cracking worse. If daytime temperatures rise high enough to melt the ice, it may freeze again during the night and expand to do a little more damage. Repeated freeze/thaw cycles can cause significant damage to Calgary paving.

Asphalt Repairs Reduce Vegetation Growth

Dust and dirt can accumulate in small cracks in asphalt. When enough has collected, small weeds can grow in the cracks. Their roots push against the asphalt and make the crack bigger, allowing for further plant growth and asphalt damage that can quickly ruin Calgary paving.

An Asphalt Paving Company Helps You Avoid PotHoles

Allowing water to sink under the surface of an asphalt driveway often creates a soft spot. This weak spot can become a pothole without prompt asphalt repairs.

Protect Calgary Paving with Regular Crack Repair

As you can see, allowing small cracks to remain can quickly compromise an asphalt driveway. Asphalt crack filling Calgary helps maintain the surface and avoid the above problems. Keeping the material in excellent condition with prompt repairs by an asphalt paving company can save you money in the long run because it helps avoid bigger repairs and keeps the surface looking its best.
