The Key to a Long-Lasting Driveway

When it comes to maintaining your driveway, it’s important to focus not only on fixing problems as they arise, but also on proactively preserving your asphalt installation to prevent issues from occurring in the first place. This is especially important in Adams County, where the weather can be harsh and unforgiving, with temperatures ranging from extremely hot in the summer to cold and snowy in the winter. This is where pavement preservation comes in. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at what pavement preservation is, why it’s important, and some of the techniques used to preserve pavement, helping you to keep your driveway safe, functional, and looking great despite the weather.

What is Pavement Preservation? Pavement preservation is a proactive approach to maintaining and prolonging the life of your driveway. It involves regularly inspecting and maintaining the pavement to prevent issues such as cracking, potholes, and erosion from occurring. By proactively preserving the pavement, you can extend the life of your driveway, save money on repairs, and ensure that it remains safe and functional for many years to come. Additionally, you can improve the curb appeal of your home and increase your property value.

There are several techniques used in pavement preservation, including:

  • Crack sealing: this involves filling in any cracks in the pavement to prevent water from penetrating the surface and causing damage.
  • Sealcoating: involves applying a protective coating to the surface of the pavement to protect it from the elements, water penetration and UV rays.
  • Pothole patching: is the process of filling in any potholes in the pavement to prevent further damage.
