Spring Maintenance Tips for Asphalt Pavement

If you have asphalt on your property, you likely understand the importance of maintenance to make it last longer and avoid big expenses later.

Spotting Problems Early

In the spring, asphalt often cracks or sinks from winter damage. It’s a good time to check it and fix any problems before they get worse. Small fixes now can save you from costly repairs later.

Easy Asphalt Maintenance Tips

Here are some easy tips to keep your asphalt in good shape this spring:

  1. Check It Out: After winter, look closely at your pavement for any damage. Even small cracks can get bigger over time. Fix them quickly to stop water from getting in and making things worse. For businesses, fixing potholes isn’t just about looks—it’s also about avoiding accidents that could lead to lawsuits.
  2. Seal It Up: Sealcoating your asphalt every couple of years is important to protect it. If it’s been a while, do it now while the weather’s good. It helps keep your asphalt safe and looking good. It’s best to hire a pro to do it right, instead of trying to do it yourself and maybe causing more damage.
  3. Fresh Paint: If the lines in your parking lot are fading, paint them again. It makes your lot look nicer and shows customers you care about safety. Make sure important areas like parking spots and fire lanes are easy to see.
  4. Stop Weeds: Grass and weeds can grow through asphalt and weaken it. Keep the edges clear to stop this. Adding curbs can help, too.
  5. Keep It Clean: Sweep away rocks, leaves, and dirt regularly to keep your asphalt looking good and safe. Clean drains to stop water from building up and causing damage.

Following these tips can help your asphalt last longer and look better. If you need professional help with paving, repair, or maintenance, contact Falcon Contracting for quality service. Call (662) 327-2053 for a quick response during business hours, or ask for a free quote today.
