Even if the weather in autumn is not too harsh in Atlanta, there are still several ways to take care of your asphalt pavement.
To start with, a thorough inspection of your pavement, driveway, or parking lot is a good start to detect early signs of wear and tear. Rains can cause pooling which in turn causes a deterioration of your surface.
This inspection will also focus on the aesthetics in order for your pavement to remain attractive and give a great impression to your guests or customers. Image is key for many businesses not only in Atlanta but also in the rest of Georgia and you don’t want your employees or prospective customers to get the wrong impression when they enter your premises. The same is true for any homeowner, it is a matter of self-respect.
Asphalt Repairs Before Winter
Once summer is over, autumn is the ideal time to perform the necessary repairs, especially if your pavement is starting to crack or if your line marking is fading. Applying a fresh layer of sealcoat and repairing cracks, and filling potholes are the bare minimum you should do in order to preserve your pavement this upcoming winter.
The change of weather can have some natural effects on your asphalt paved surfaces and our goal as a professional asphalt paving company is to fight those effects and to protect your pavement against the change of seasons and the slow degradation of your driveways and parking lots.
Tips for Asphalt Maintenance in Autumn
Relocating the trees that are too close to your driveway can avoid tree roots damaging your asphalt in the future. Clean up all chemical and oil spills because they might damage your surface and the sealant too.
You can also make sure that the gutters don’t drain directly on your pavement.
And last but not least, heavy vehicles can cause important damages to your residential driveway or parking lot so you should avoid parking these type of vehicles there.

It is time to make sure that your asphalt pavement is ready for winter, the same way your house and your car are! Cold temperatures and occasionally ice can and will damage your pavement if you haven’t taken the necessary steps to protect it.
The weather might be generally warm here but it puts your pavement even more at risk of reacting violently to harsh weather. Don’t let that happen to you!
With the recent hurricanes and storms hitting our coasts, many people are asking themselves if they are ready for the next one.
There are a few things you can do to ready yourself for an upcoming hurricane. We would like to share here a few tips on how you can achieve that successfully on your own.
The first thing you can do is to take a closer look at your catch basins or storm drains. Make sure they are not blocked or obstructed by debris, leaves, or trash of any kind. If they are blocked, the probability of flooding will greatly increase. Actually, blocked drains are the number one cause of flood damage.
Once it is done, you can perform a quick inspection of the area surrounding these same catch basins and storm drains. The pavement must be in good condition in order for them to work perfectly well. If the pavement is in poor condition, chances are that the storm drain won’t perform as it should.
Asphalt and Concrete Pavement Repairs Before and after a Hurricane or Severe Storm
If your asphalt pavement needs repairs, you can always call us and ask for a free estimate. Our paving specialists will be happy to help you. Readjusting your drain or completely repaving your driveway or parking lot might be required in some cases.
Water is the number one nemesis of everything asphalt and it’s easy to understand why after any storm, hurricane, or even heavy rain, paving companies have so much work.
Sealcoating can offer better protection to your asphalt pavement against severe weather and thus save you money in the long run. It is a lot cheaper than repaving.
Keep in mind that standing water can create cracks and damage your driveway. If some areas of your pavement are lower, you might have some “bird baths” or worse, some water ponds. In that case, it is wise to call a professional paving company in Atlanta to fix the problem.
Protecting your Driveway Against Water Damage
Water saturation is bad for any asphalt or concrete driveway, parking lot or any other surface. Heavy rain might weaken their integrity and create holes and cracks. Water will also be absorbed by the ground and the porous rocks situated under the roads, weakening the foundation of the roads and paved surfaces themselves.
A ruined pavement doesn’t look good but it is also dangerous for your car when you drive on it. You don’t need to wait until you have a huge pothole to think about preventive measures. Very often, the damage is not visible from the surface.
