Your driveway is the welcome mat to your home, enduring every seasonal change. From the scorching heat of summer to the icy chills of winter, your asphalt driveway faces a year-round battle against the elements. To keep it looking its best and ensure its longevity, it’s essential to understand how each season can impact your asphalt. Let’s discover the tips and tricks to keep your driveway pristine, no matter the season. SUMMER'S SCORCHING IMPACT ON ASPHALT During the scorching summer months in Utah, your asphalt driveway faces some unique challenges. The intense heat can make asphalt more pliable, causing it to become susceptible to deformities. Prolonged exposure to the sun’s rays can lead to the softening of the asphalt surface, making it vulnerable to scuffs, imprints from heavy objects, and even shoe marks. To counteract these effects, professional seal coating is essential during the summer. Seal coating provides a protective layer that shields your driveway from harmful UV rays and the high temperatures that can degrade the surface. Moreover, maintaining proper expansion joints in your driveway is crucial. These joints allow the asphalt to expand and contract with temperature changes, reducing the risk of cracks and warping. WINTER'S COLD REALITY FOR YOUR DRIVEWAY The arrival of winter in Utah brings frigid temperatures and a unique set of challenges for your driveway. The freeze-thaw cycle is particularly damaging to asphalt. As temperatures fluctuate, moisture can seep into existing cracks. When this moisture freezes, it expands, exacerbating these cracks and creating new ones. The result is an unsightly and potentially hazardous surface. Another winter concern is snow and ice removal. De-icing products like rock salt are commonly used to keep driveways safe during the icy months. However, these substances can erode the protective seal coating and cause more rapid deterioration. Therefore, understanding the right way to remove snow and ice without harming your driveway is crucial. For these winter-induced issues, timely repairs are necessary. If your driveway sustains damage, addressing it quickly is essential to prevent further deterioration.
