What Causes Puddling?
If you notice small or large puddles around your parking lot,street access or pathway, you may be in need of professional repair services. Puddling is most often a result of basic wear and tear.
Throughout the years, your parking lot, street access or pathway may experience a lot of traffic. After some time, you may start to notice puddles forming on your property’s pavement after a rainstorm. Years of heavy vehicles and various activities can cause the pavement’s surface to develop cracks, holes, deformations, and depressions. When these damaged areas have enough time to develop, the surface will start to form potholes and puddles.
In addition to heavy traffic, puddling areas can also be a result of the changing soil beneath the asphalt. After several seasons of the soil freezing, thawing, and becoming moist, the ground can no longer support the asphalt surface the way it once could. This is why you’ll notice excess water run-off and collect in the deepest parts of the asphalt surface.
Potholes are an eyesore on your property. They can take away from the aesthetic value of your park or building. Additionally, potholes and deformations can leave people at risk for injuries. Passersby riding bikes, running, or walking may fall as a result of the uneven ground. Additionally, potholes can severely damage some vehicles, resulting in costly repairs and maintenance.
With a properly graded pavement area, water should be able to run-off into drainage systems so it doesn’t sit on the asphalt surface and penetrate cracks and deformations. If you’re noticing puddles during the springtime or after a rain shower, you should schedule a repair as soon as possible. Leaving the small cracks or potholes to worsen will only create larger issues down the road.
