A worn, battered driveway can be somewhat expensive to replace. So, it’s no wonder that many homeowners choose driveway resurfacing to extend their driveway’s lifespan. However, for this residential paving service to prove effective, it is essential that resurfacing takes place before moisture-related problems damage the driveway’s foundation. The following are some of the top indicators that you should invest in pavement resurfacing immediately.
Top 3 Indicators That It’s Time For Driveway Resurfacing
1. Alligator Cracks
“Alligator cracks” is a term used to describe the shallow, scaly cracks that often appear on a driveway after a few years. These cracks are less than one quarter of an inch in width; as such, they are generally not yet deep enough to cause damage to the foundation. Driveway resurfacing will fill these smaller cracks before they have a chance to grow.
2. Stained Surfaces
Oil drips and other chemical spills can leave noticeable stains and even eat away at asphalt. Without regular sealcoating, exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays can also cause your driveway to take on a faded appearance. Resurfacing will restore a solid black color and mitigate the damage caused by chemicals.
3. Drainage Issues
After a heavy rainstorm, you don’t want to see puddles left behind on your driveway. This greatly increases the risk of potholes or large cracks forming in the asphalt. Resurfacing can address these drainage issues so that water doesn’t linger on the asphalt surface after a storm.
