Though professional paving contractors like Ryan’s Asphalt & Concrete know how to install long lasting driveways, weather and time can cause your paving to break down. Concrete driveways are subject to damage from oil deposits, and asphalt paving can be affected by UV rays and water.
Common Driveway Problems & Recommended Pavement Repairs
While home repair stores sell crack fillers and concrete repair products, DIY pavement repairs don’t last. Let’s see how the paving professionals at Ryan’s Asphalt & Concrete can help fix some common issues with both concrete and asphalt driveways.
Cracks – When water flows down into small fissures in pavement and then freezes, those cracks get deeper and wider. Contractors can fill asphalt cracking with special filler compounds or resurface the area, and concrete cracks can be filled and then sealed.
Potholes – Pooling water causes deep cracks when it freezes, but when damage reaches the pavement underlayer, a pothole can form. Professionals remove broken pavement and debris from the hole, then fill it with high quality products and resurface the area to make it smooth.
Sinking – If there are drainage issues in the underlayer, pavement can sink in spots, which makes the whole driveway uneven. Cracks often form between the sunken areas and the undamaged pavement. In cases like this, professionals will perform asphalt milling and resurfacing or remove and replace a concrete driveway.
Edge Damage – Drainage issues can affect the edges of your driveway too. When the underlayer erodes, the edges of the pavement break down, causing unsightly crumbling driveway edges. While preventive pavement maintenance is best, paving experts can repair driveway edge damage and install decorative edge designs with bricks or stones.
