Even the best of asphalt surfaces will eventually need to be repaired. Exposure to weather conditions and continuous wear and tear as vehicles pass over your asphalt paving may begin to cause cracks to appear on the paving. If not fixed on time, cracks may turn into potholes that may continually grow in size. These will not only affect the appearance of your asphalt paving but will also lead to bumpy rides and may even cause damage to vehicles that drive over such surfaces. At Memphis Asphalt Services, we have all the right tools and the experience needed to carry out high-quality asphalt repairs services to restore the appearance of your asphalt surface and prevent the problem from growing larger with time.
How we repair asphalt surfaces
There are various methods of repairing asphalt surfaces. Our skilled technicians can apply any of these techniques to fix your asphalt surface depending on the type of damage and how much work needs to be done. Before we proceed with the repairs, we will evaluate your asphalt surface and determine the best method to fix the damage. We can do what is known as a patchwork on your asphalt. This involves cutting the damaged portion of the asphalt surface away and replacing the cut area with new asphalt. This is the most commonly used method of asphalt repair. Another method we use is the infrared method. This involves heating the existing asphalt surface before adding a new mix on top of it. Another method we use is the heat and shoe method. This involves adding a hot asphalt mix directly to the area in need of a repair then compounding it so that it bonds with the old surface.
When cracks are left unattended, they eventually expand into potholes that continually grow in size as you continually interact with them. This will only leave your asphalt surface torn-up and very difficult to navigate. Asphalt potholes repair should be carried out promptly to prevent this from happening. Our skilled repair contractors can carry out a pothole repair job on potholes of any sizes to restore the appearance of the surface. Every asphalt surface will require pothole patching at some point. When this happens, you must call in experienced contractions that will carry out a quality patch job to prevent deterioration and help you save money in the long run.
Asphalt Sealing and crack filling
When cracks appear on your asphalt, it may seem like it is no big deal now. But leaving the crack unattended can lead to serious structural issues down the lane. Cracks eventually grow bigger leading to more costly repairs. Crack filling and sealing are vital asphalt maintenance and repair services that can prolong the life of your asphalt surface. By filling and sealing the cracks early, you prevent water from seeping through the crack and causing further damage. To seal or fill cracks, we can apply a hot-poured sealant or asphalt crack filler that effectively fills the crack on the asphalt surface. A well-executed asphalt sealing can give you up to 8 more years before the cracks appear again.
We also carry out asphalt overlay services. Even when your asphalt surface seems old and worn, you may not need to replace it entirely just yet. If we inspect your asphalt paving and find out that it still has some integrity, all that is required will be an asphalt overlay. We will add a new layer of asphalt over the old one. This is an economical way to restore the appearance and functionality of your asphalt surface.
