We get asked a lot of questions about products, service lines, processes, & materials frequently. We hope these answers to common inquiries will help you below. Feel free to reach out to us directly.
Q: What are some common symptoms to help identify pavement needs?
A: There are many visual signs that indicate your asphalt pavement may need some attention. There are other signs too that may not be so obvious to you. That’s why we’ve compiled a checklist (click here) to help you. Should you need a pavement consultant to take a look, just give us a call – 843-734-0622.
Q: How often should I treat my asphalt pavement?
A: This is going to depend on a few variables, but a good rule of thumb to protect and help preserve the asphalt is with a sealcoating treatment about 2-3 years after pavement installation. And, 2-3 years continuously after that. Ask us about our pavement preservation plans today to set up for ease of mind and continuous protection.
Q: Why do I need an asphalt pavement maintenance plan?
A: Like anything else that goes through constant wear and tear, asphalt pavement needs to be protected and preserved. Constant traffic, harmful chemicals, and environmental factors like rain and sun, are the worst enemy of your pavement. Protecting it is key in order to get the most useful life out of it. Having a plan in place will help to eliminate this wear and tear.
Q: What is the difference in sealcoating and rejuvenating?
A: Sealcoating is a protective coating which forms a barrier between your asphalt pavement and harmful external elements and chemicals. Once applied, the sealer protects the asphalt against the sun’s ultra violet rays, gasoline, oil, battery acid, salt, sun, and water. Sealcoating is a proven, economical way to improve the appearance of your property and maintain and extend the life of your pavement investment.
Asphalt rejuvenator is another alternative and can be an attractive option for those looking to save money on the front-end and implement a quick fix. While we do not recommend this option for every situation, there are many instances where this could potentially work. There are different options for rejuvenators out there – so ask your contractor what he recommends or has in his product line, first.
Q: Once the work has been approved, is there anything I can do to help streamline the process?
A: Absolutely. The process tends to be a lot smoother and more efficient if the property owner or manager can do a few things in advance of our work beginning. A few helpful tips:
Remove any and all materials, equipment and cars from the work area prior to scheduled work date.
Notify tenants of scheduled work and any potential lot and/or driveway closings or re-routing.
Turn off all irrigation systems 48 hours prior to scheduled work.
Treat excessive grass/weeds before scheduled work.
Notify scheduled deliveries or other contractors of scheduled work and lot closures.
