Asphalt Maintenance Services in the Twin Cities Area
Keeping your asphalt pavement properly maintained is crucial for any business. Without regular asphalt maintenance, water, sun, air and traffic cause asphalt to erode. Although a solid foundation, quality asphalt mix, and professional installation can increase the lifespan of your pavement, it requires routine maintenance.
At Bituminous Roadways, Inc., we want to preserve and extend the life of your pavement. We do this through the following methods for asphalt repair and maintenance in the Minneapolis and St. Paul areas.
- Patching: This process is necessary when asphalt pavement has completely deteriorated in a localized area. As stress cracking or potholes develop, a surface patch may be a quick, inexpensive fix. For a longer lasting solution, the full depth of the pavement needs to be removed and replaced.
- Cracksealing: This process helps protect pavement by preventing water from entering the aggregate base layer. Cracks develop as the asphalt ages, caused by rapid temperature changes or by heavy traffic loads. Cracks should be sealed with a rubberized cracksealer after the edges have been cut to maximize adhesion.
- Sealcoating: Sealing asphalt every 3 to 7 years reduces overall repair costs, improves appearance, and extends asphalt life by preventing oxidation and water penetration.
- Overlaying: An overlay adds a layer of new asphalt 1.5-2.5 inches thick over the existing pavement. Overlays add strength to the pavement and improve its curb appeal. Prior to the overlay, areas that need attention should be repaired first.
If your asphalt develops potholes after a severe winter, we can patch the holes quickly and efficiently. Our maintenance services will ensure your asphalt keeps citizens safe and improves your property’s appearance and functionality.
