Driveway paving Vancouver is usually necessary after the sun’s rays create a chemical reaction called oxidation in your driveway, causing it to fade and break down prematurely. The ultraviolet rays and oxygen combine and begin to cause the deterioration of the asphalt’s binders. This causes it to become weak, to crumble, and this is how you get cracks and potholes.
Look Out For Signs
Your asphalt will begin to look faded and cracks will start to show up, especially if it’s a particularly hot summer. The heat will cause it to bend and warp from the weight of your vehicle, causing even more damage.
If you notice these signs, take action to preserve the integrity and strength of your driveway immediately. Acting fast can be cheaper in the long run, minimizing chances of needing a full asphalt removal and replacement or driveway paving Vancouver. If your paving is fresh, a simple seal coat will usually do the trick.
Get Your Driveway Sealcoated
A seal coat acts as a protective top layer for your driveway, protecting it from the effects of weathering, gasoline and other chemicals on roads, and from the effects of the sun. This method will be inadequate if there is too much structural damage already.
Get Your Driveway RePaved (Removal & Replacement)
In the case of severe damage or in cases where a seal coat will not be sufficient, full removal and replacement is necessary.
Get an Overlay
When a seal coat is not enough, yet there is not enough damage for removal and replacement, an overlay provides the look and feel of a brand new driveway, being the perfect solution to renewing an old asphalted surface.
