The typical lifespan of a high-quality asphalt driveway is 15-20 years. However, with regular maintenance and upkeep, your driveway may last up to 30 years. At Xsealer Asphalt Maintenance we pride ourselves on top-quality work and customer service. From line painting to asphalt sealer and crack filling, we have the tools to handle all of your asphalt needs.
How to Increase the Life of Your Asphalt Driveway
The first step to increasing the life of your driveway is to avoid water damage, which is the largest cause of damage to pavement. To do this, you must prevent water intrusion as much as possible. With the fluctuating temperatures and the freeze-thaw cycles that occur during the winter, water can significantly damage the pavement. Also, by maintaining catch basins and bioswales annually, you can ensure proper drainage of water during the thaw cycle.
Next, fill in cracks as soon as you notice them. The damage will get worse the longer you leave it and lead to unsafe driving conditions.
You should also use an asphalt sealer on your driveway each year to prevent deterioration and oxidization. This is the best way to significantly increase the lifespan of your asphalt.
Lastly, repair potholes when you first notice them as they’ll get larger as time goes on. Not only do they pose a safety threat, but they’ll cost you a significant amount of money the bigger they are. Repairing potholes also increases curb appeal. They’re a total eyesore for your home or business and make it look rundown.
If you’re still not satisfied with your asphalt driveway after repairs and maintenance it may be time to replace it. This is especially true if it’s not draining properly or it’s not as smooth as it used to be. Don’t hesitate to reach out to the professionals at XSealer Asphalt Maintenance to create a plan of action.
