Frequently Asked Questions
What is asphalt made of?
Typically, asphalt pavement is a mix of 5% asphalt cement, but the majority of it is a variety of aggregates. These can include stones, sand, and gravel.
How long should I stay off fresh asphalt?
A safe bet is to stay off the pavement for a day or two so the surface can cool and cure. This is especially a concern during warm weather.
What maintenance lengthens the life of pavement?
Annual maintenance includes filling cracks as they appear and sealing your lot approximately every two years to keep up with traffic wear. Corrective procedures, such as patching, removal, and replacement may need to occur if there are potholes or excessive cracking in your lot.
