There are some very good reasons to take care of your asphalt paving in Tampa Fl. With the right care asphalt paving will easily last for 30 years or more, even in our hot weather in Tampa. Here’s what happens if you don’t maintain your asphalt paving.
Asphalt Pavement starts to deteriorate the day it’s installed. Cars and trucks with gasoline and oil leaks and heat are the worst offenders.
Florida Asphalt Solutions in Tampa offers full service asphalt sealcoating and Asphalt line striping that will extend the life of your asphalt parking lots and driveways for years in Tampa.
Asphalt pavement is the the most cost effective parking lot for large commercial parking lots and we can show you how to keep your asphalt looking like new and protect it from the elements and cars and trucks.
Asphalts original black color will begin to fade the first year and the asphalt will lose its plasticity, which keeps it from cracking. You’ll notice hairline cracks in the beginning and in five years asphalt will begin to oxidize and asphalt that is unsealed can easily lose half its thickness in 15 years.
When left unsealed asphalt cracks can go all the way through the asphalt pavement. Loose asphalt and subbase on the top surface will deteriorate when water works its way down into the base rock below the surface.
As the base rock under the asphalt begins to fail, water will cause potholes and after 15 years the asphalt will begin to fall apart over all areas.
There’s no reason for this to happen when you can reseal asphalt parking lots for a very small amount of money.
Asphalt that is sealcoated every 4 to 5 years will easily last for 30 years or longer. If you’re trying to decide if it’s time to reseal, look for areas of asphalt that are rough looking with the aggregate showing, as well as cracks in the asphalt and line striping that has faded so badly it’s hard to tell where to park.
