EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR ASPHALT Thinking about how to extend the life of your driveways or parking lot. The short response is to invest in regular maintenance. An average quality pavement can last 15-20 years, whereas properly maintained, asphalt life expectancy can endure over two times. Regular maintenance can be broken down into 4 things: AVOID WATER DAMAGE Prevent it from standing water as much as possible is a good way to avoid water intruding into your asphalt. In Utah, the freeze and defrost patterns of water can make harm the asphalt. Maintaining proper water spill over with catch bowls and bioswales on an annual basis will help ensure drainage. CRACK FILLING Fill the cracks in your asphalt intermittently or as frequently as possible to decrease oxidation. Leaving cracks in asphalt untreated can lead to additional deterioration of your pavement. Whether you fill the cracks yourself or you hire a local asphalt crack filling company. SEALCOAT Applying a sealcoat to your asphalt driveway or parking lot will help to protect the asphalt from water, oils, and U.V. damage. Sealcoating each 2-3 years (contingent upon climate and vehicle traffic) will extend the life of your driveway for a long time.
