St. Louis Asphalt Sealing & Striping is committed to asphalt repair whenever possible. Not only is the repair option cheaper, it’s faster too! If your asphalt surface has a few potholes, waves, wrinkles and cracks, you may be resigned to completely tearing out your old asphalt paving and replacing it. STOP!
First, the problem may not be as bad as you think. Potholes can be filled; waves and wrinkles can be ground down. Cracks can be filled. However, time is not on your side! The longer your driveway or parking lot degrades; the chances of an asphalt repair lessen. Cracks widen, the road base deteriorates and then you are stuck with a complete tear out and replacement.
In addition, many “home improvement” stores sell products to “permanently” fix your asphalt paving problems. While those types of products have their place, the problem will only resurface worse than before. While the product may sit in the hole and smooth out the pavement, the underlying water control issues will still be rotting the surface from the inside. Without getting to the root of the problem, the entire surface foundation is placed in jeopardy!
Think of an asphalt surface like a boat on a lake. If any holes crop up, the boat begins to sink. A piece of bubble gum may stop the leak for awhile, but sooner or later the gum will give way and water come gushing in worse than before.
Don’t let water sink your boat!
