Asphalt Resurfacing Myths

Whether you have a business with an asphalt parking lot or you have an asphalt driveway at your home, you will face deciding whether or not to get it resurfaced after years of wear and tear. Some make the mistake of just replacing the asphalt completely because of the following myths. Know the truth so you can decide if asphalt resurfacing is for you.

Resurfacing is Too Expensive

Many people are under the impression that resurfacing the asphalt is just too expensive. Additionally, they feel that their money would be better spent just replacing the material completely.

The truth is that as long as the asphalt isn't beyond repair, it is better to just resurface it. It takes less time and is less expensive than replacing it. Resurfacing the asphalt prevents further deterioration as well. You should consider a replacement when you have severe ruts or breaks in the asphalt. In these damaged areas, the asphalt will look similar to the hide of the alligator. At this point, you should replace it.

Resurfacing Does Not Repair Holes and Cracks in the Asphalt

For some reason, it is a common misconception that resurfacing the asphalt will leave the cracks and holes as is. They won't be repaired or even hidden, so it's pointless. This is not true. First of all, cracks and holes of any size are bad news for asphalt. They let water settle into the pavement and cause the structure to weaken and become even more damaged.

If you hire a professional, they will work to make sure that all of the cracks and holes are properly sealed, otherwise the entire job would be pointless.

Resurfacing Doesn't Change the Look of my Property

After years of damage, your asphalt driveway looks pretty rough. Resurfacing is an option, but you heard that the asphalt doesn't look any better when the job is done. Before you make a costly mistake, you should know that this is just a myth.

A damaged, worn, faded driveway looks really bad and doesn't do anything positive for the look of your property. Resurfacing the asphalt will fill the holes and repair the cracks so you have one smooth surface. Furthermore, it will bring your driveway back to the rich black color it once was.

One Important Tip

After you decide to resurface your driveway, talk to a professional (such as Phend & Brown) about having it sealcoated as well. Sealcoating protects your driveway against the elements and makes it last longer before it needs repairs.

Now you can make an informed decision about resurfacing your asphalt so that you can get the most bang for your buck and time.
