Having a Haines City parking lot paving means having your own specific set of asphalt related problems. Each type of problem has its own corresponding method of repair. Knowing and understanding the kind of asphalt problem helps you determine which type of repair is best carried out. Each type of repair has its own set of procedures, tools, and skills in order for it to be carried out, so it’s important not to mix up the different types of asphalt repairs. To give you a hand, here are the different types of repairs that are carried out on your parking lot paving.
Asphalt resurfacing can be done to prolong the lifespan of your parking lot paving, as long as there is no visible foundation failure or excessive damage. This is a great way to clear up any surface damage and cracking, as well as give your asphalt surface a new, clean finish. When this particular method is carried out, the surface must be cleaned of any debris before the new surface is applied.
Removal and Replacement
Sometimes, no matter how well you keep your paving maintained, there are times when too much damage, or too heavy damage has been done that the best thing to do is remove the top layer of the asphalt and replace it entirely. Depending on the level of damage incurred, you may have to replace the top layer, or the entire thickness of the asphalt layer. More severe problems that involve damage up to the foundation of the paving may require the removal and replacement down to the subgrade layer. Depending on the amount of traffic that the paving receives, you may have to add another inch or two, and the asphalt will be compacted in the replacement.
Crack filling and crack sealing are two types of repairs that must be performed regularly. If you find any cracks on your paving, it is important to get them sealed or filled as soon as you can as this may potentially escalate into a more severe level of damage and end up costing you more. This type of repair can be used to maintain the overall condition of your paving in order to extend the lifespan of your parking lot paving.
Asphalt sealcoating is not a type of repair that has to be done every time a specific issue or damage occurs. This type of repair work should be done every three years or so, depending on the amount of damage your paving has incurred. This is is great way to fix any surface issues on your paving and make its surface seem like new again.
