One of the most damaging elements to asphalt is water. If there are cracks in your pavement, water can seep in and eat away the foundation. Eventually, this will cause some parts of the asphalt to sink. This is what usually leads to the creation of potholes. Over time, water can also erode the edges of pavement and driveways. Thankfully, there are ways to protect your asphalt work from the damaging effects of water.
Before even laying foundation for asphalt, we examine the land to determine factors such as:
Possible sources of water and the drainage system on the property
The amount of rainfall and even the number of storms an area normally gets
Whether a slope on the property normally causes water to settle in a particular spot
How we can redirect potential water issues before they become a problem
