What Are The Three Important Items To Consider When Evaluating Your Pavement?

Asphalt Performance

When considering what you need to be aware of when it comes to asphalt performance, it is important to evaluate the current status of your pavement. While conducting this assessment, it is important to note any failures within the parking lot that need to be addressed. This includes noting any alligator cracking, potholes, or other visible damage on your pavement. 

Are There Any Drainage Issues?

If you notice continual sitting or puddling of water on your road surface, you most likely have a drainage problem. This is a good time to take into consideration any feedback your residents have given you about standing water in the parking lot or private roadways that need to be addressed. Drainage issues can also come from blocked drains or sinking pavement. Water can be highly destructive to any surface, particularly asphalt pavement. 

Have Traffic Levels Changed?

It’s important to consider if the traffic volume or heaviness of the vehicles driving on your pavement has changed. Higher-volume and heavier loads can cause problems like alligator cracking and potholes. Things to consider here could be the change in frequency of trash pickups by garbage trucks or delivery services if you have had an increase in new residents moving in or doing any kind of renovation on their home or property.
