  • 2. Pavements are important landscape features in premises and they help improve the movement of traffic and add aesthetic value to the properties. However, when you install asphalt pavements, you need to make sure they are maintained properly. With the services of an asphalt company Maryland area, you can install quality-paving surfaces and repair damages in time. Asphaltic material is long lasting but it suffers from environmental and man-made effects.
  • 3. Despite the economic and aesthetic values of asphaltic material, they also suffer from structural defects. As the blacktop ages, it begins to disintegrate in strength. The binding properties of the petroleum-based binder diminish with time. A constant oxidation process takes place in asphalt pavement where the molecules are continuously shifting and re-assembling as they search for equilibrium status.
  • 4. Apparently, this oxidation process takes place in the rest of the asphalt life. It is until the oxidation is over that they life of the pavement ends. This takes many years and lasts the lifetime of the paving material. However, the oxidation is accelerated by environmental factors meaning that the blacktop can disintegrate fast than expected.
  • 5. Heavy loads cannot be supported when the subgrade is weak and soon other problems start occurring. The cracks enlarge and form potholes, and if the freeze-thaw cycle occurs, it leads to formation of many potholes. The asphaltic paving material is only as strong as the sub base in which it sits on.
  • 6. The salts are applied as part of the snow clearance process during the heavy formation of ice in winter. However, those salts can react with asphaltic material and break it down leading to damages. Gasoline products such as engine oils and transmission fluids also react with asphalt material making the binding properties loose.
  • 7. When you see the surface of pavement unraveling, it means that the aggregate mixture is wearing out. This is caused by deteriorating bonding structures of blacktop. When raveling continues, the asphaltic materials further weaken and the fine hairline cracks now spread wide as well as deepen. At this points, the cracks are clearly visible and you need a corrective measure to prevent further disintegration.
  • 8. Using overlay or resurfacing, the cracks can be sealed especially if they have occurred in an large area. The method of repairing cracks is determined by the extent of the defects and the area covered. If the cracks are isolated, then crack sealers are applied on the affected locations. However, if the cracks are spread over larger sections of pavements, an overlay or resurfacing is used to seal the cracking at once.
  • 9. If that water is allowed to remain stagnant on the surface, it can eventually enter the sub base and cause troubles. A firmly compacted base can promote the life span of pavements because it does not allow shifting of soils. A strong base helps the pavements support heavy loads preventing tearing apart of pavement surface or formation of depressions. By contacting an asphalt company Maryland area, you are able to install, repair, and maintain your driveways or parking lots in the right condition.
