It is recommended that an asphalt parking lot be maintained regularly to prevent the surface from deteriorating, to slow the formation of stress cracks, and also to maintain the aesthetics of your property. We recommend annual preventative maintenance such as crack-filling when new cracks occur. Sealer should be applied to your lot approx. every two years depending on the traffic and wear that you see. Corrective maintenance is necessary when excessive cracking occurs or other structurally failed areas develop. This type of maintenance includes pothole filling, asphalt removal and replacement (localized patching), overlay/resurface, or a complete removal and replacement.
Normally, 24-hours is all that is required to use your new asphalt surface. In very warm weather, we recommend staying off the fresh asphalt for 1 – 2 days, as the surface cools and cures.
Yes, it is possible to pave over concrete, but is not recommended. Reflective cracking is likely to occur as a result. Reflective cracking will typically occur along all the construction joints in the concrete or where the concrete has already cracked. This is due to expansion or contraction of the old concrete surface which then causes the asphalt above to crack as the concrete moves.
Under normal conditions asphalt pavement should last about 10 – 20 years. Pavement life can vary greatly depending on climate, base conditions, amount and type of traffic, and pavement maintenance.
Asphalt pavement mixes are typically composed of 5% asphalt cement and 95% aggregates (stone, sand, and gravel). Due to its highly viscous nature, asphalt cement must be heated so it can be mixed with the aggregates at the asphalt mixing facility.
