There are many instances when your asphalt driveway or parking lot is just been beat up. A common issue is heavy traffic hammering the asphalt and making holes. These are literally where the asphalt has broken off and either been completely removed or is detached from the rest of the pavement. In these instances it can create major problems for any cars that mistakenly drive over one of them. It is terrible for your car's suspension and can ultimately create bigger problems down the road. Not to mention it is considered a trip hazard especially if it is somewhere frequently used by pedestrians. You can check out our DIY repair page to find out more about how you can take care of these issues on your own.
Alligator and Spiderweb Cracks:
These look just like they sound. These cracks have multiple thin cracks that extend in a spider or alligator shape. These aren't that hard to fix and generally you can fill these in yourself depending on how big the area of asphalt is. These can results over time due to sun exposure and the wearing down of the pavement.
These are holes that have literally sunk into the asphalt usually after a newly paved surface. These are typically caused by a poor foundation material underneath the asphalt or they can be caused by the sun warming the new pavement and creating a soft spot. In colder areas the soft spots will generally lead to other asphalt issues such as cracks or pot holes. It depends on how severe the sink hole that determines how the repair will happen. If it's not too deep, typically we can fill the cracks and cover the hold with a new surface. Sometimes it will require that we cut a hold in the asphalt and remove the section. We then need to fill it with new asphalt to create a seamless match with the existing pavement.
These are some of the most common asphalt repairs that we handle on a daily basis. For all your needs regarding paving and pavement maintenance, give us a call and we'll be able to take care of you. Servicing Portland, Vancouver, Beaverton, Tigard, Lake Oswego, Gresham.
