Asphalt is made up of various sizes of stone, sand, liquid asphalt and other elements. Some areas will look smoother than others... some surface hairline cracks, scars and ravellings are not unusual. It can take up to 12 months for the liquid asphalt in blacktop to harden and cure. You can walk on the surface immediately, but it is recommended that you keep vehicular traffic off at least 12 hours or longer after paving during our hot summer months.
Asphalt surfaces are flexible and as temperatures rise and fall you may notice the surface will harden and soften. This is normal.
Excessive weight from large vehicles or the tongue of stored campers or boats can cause depressions. Placing a piece of plywood under the tires or jack will help prevent this problem.
The inherent flexibility of asphalt allows rough areas and scars to heal themselves in time and under traffic, while larger tears can be touched up.
Once your asphalt has completely cured, it is advisable to apply a sealer to your pavement. This process is called "sealcoating".
A sealcoat is designed to protect the pavement surface from sun oxidation, moisture penetration and the loss of surface particles. Sealing slows the penetration of spills from gasoline and other petroleum products.
Unsealed surfaces remain porous, dry out, become rough and the life of the pavement is significantly reduced.
What it CAN do:
- Enhance the appearance of the pavement and the value of your property
- Slow oxidation, water penetration and surface raveling
- Resist gas and oil-type spills
- Extend the life of your pavement
What it CAN NOT do:
- Seal or fill cracks
- Provide structural help to failing or damaged pavement
- Completely fill in voids, cracks or blemishes in pavement surfaces
- Visually hide crackseal, patches and visually rough areas
- Stick to decomposed, peeling or oil-coated pavements
Hot Rubber Cracksealing:
Pavement cracks wider than 1/4" can be sealed with rubberized cracksealer prior to resurfacing the pavement. The rubberized cracksealer expands and contracts with the crack to prevent moisture from softening the soil below and causing pavement damage.
When cracksealing with hot rubberized cracksealer, some rubber will remain on the surface. During our summer months, rubber becomes soft and tacky. This is normal. Try to avoid walking and parking in these spots. As the rubber ages, the tackiness will go away.
