Orlando, Jacksonville & Tampa Asphalt repair or patching
If the asphalt surface has begun to deteriorate it should be removed and replaced. The first step is saw cutting or milling the deteriorated asphalt. Our Orlando asphalt company will then haul the material off site to be recycled. After repairing any damaged base we apply tack coat to all edges to seal against any future water penetration. The hot asphalt mix is then installed and followed by the use of either a vibratory plate and/or a multi ton vibratory roller for compaction.
How to prolong asphalt life expectancy
Asphalt is sand, rock, and oil. The oil is the glue that holds it all together and is highly susceptible to problems with sun, water, and traffic. To keep the asphalt from drying and cracking it needs to be sealcoated. Sealcoat is a sun block for your pavement. New pavement should be allowed about six months to cure before sealing. Applications at approximately every three years will help to stop solar damage to the binder material. Sealcoating is a very cost effective preventative maintenance measure for extending the life of pavement. It resists damage from the sun, petroleum spills, and water penetration.
