The best way to maintain your asphalt and keep costs down is to create a basic “Preventive Maintenance” plan that keeps the pavement looking good and performing at a high level.
- Be proactive and perform patch repairs appropriately.
- Think long term-don’t defer necessary repairs.
- Sealcoat every 4-7 years with two coats of sealer.
- Crack seal as necessary.
- Ensure water runs down and away from the asphalt.
- Deal with oil spots before they cause permanent damage.
