With over 25 years of experience in the asphalt paving industry, we can tackle even the worst deteriorated pavement using only the highest quality products and the most advanced pavement repair methods. We were recently contacted by a property management firm about a parking lot on a multifamily residential property. Their asphalt was, put simply, old, since it had been in place for over 20 years.
The sad fact is that no matter how well your parking lot is installed or how many asphalt repair and pavement maintenance services you perform over its lifespan, asphalt pavement will break down over time. But how? Sunlight leeches important chemicals from the asphalt, weakening it. Tires wear away the surface, exposing the aggregates like gravel inside the asphalt. Water flows into minute cracks in the pavement, then freezes and cracks it. When the ice melts, the water leaves the cracks, washing away bits of asphalt, weakening it further. Then, like our Fresno CA parking lot, you’re left with brittle, cracked, gray pavement.
After a thorough pavement inspection and a consultation, we determined the best way to fix the parking lot was to remove and replace the asphalt. This sounds like a long, difficult job, but the Tri County Asphalt team got the job done quickly, removing and replacing 1,000 tons of asphalt!
