Guidelines for Maintaining Asphalt Surfaces:
Asphalt’s semi-flexible nature is what makes it an exceptional paving material, particularly suited to our climate. Its flexibility, while advantageous, means that the surface can sometimes soften, leading to potential marks or indentations. To help you maintain the appearance and functionality of your asphalt surface, here are some key guidelines:
Initial Curing Period: Avoid driving or parking on the paved surface for 5-7 days during summer months. The time needed for the asphalt to cool and harden may vary with weather; cooler seasons typically require less time. Be mindful of potential tire marks and depressions, which may result from parking on asphalt that has re-softened due to hot weather, parking near the edge, or not staggering parking. Even years after paving, heat waves may soften the asphalt.
Steering Considerations: Always ensure the vehicle is in motion when steering, as dry steering (turning wheels while stationary) can damage the surface.
Preventing Chemical Damage: Avoid allowing gas and oil to contact the paved surfaces. Using an asphalt sealer may reduce damage from oil-based products.
Avoiding Indentations: Refrain from placing pointed objects such as ladders, lawn chairs, tire chains, or narrow-heeled shoes on the new asphalt surface. These can concentrate weight on a small area, causing indentations. If needed, use a board to distribute the load.
Sealing Practices: Avoid using sealer for the first three years, unless otherwise advised. For more information or an estimate on sealing, please contact us. If you choose a DIY option, an asphalt emulsion type sealer is recommended.
Weed Control and Edging: Keep the sides of the asphalt edged to prevent weed growth. If weeds appear, treat them with a weed killer solution (e.g., vinegar, dish soap, salt). In some cases, it might be beneficial to backfill over the tamped edge of the asphalt for stability, as the tamped edge can be covered without issue.
Heavy Vehicles and Equipment: Avoid having very heavy vehicles or equipment drive on your asphalt, unless specifically designed for heavy use, as it may cause damage. Most driveways are engineered to support regular vehicles and light trucks.
By adhering to these guidelines, you can preserve the quality and appearance of your asphalt surface, making the most of your investment. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
