Q: How do you maintain asphalt parking lots, roads, and walkways?
We recommend having asphalt maintenance done professionally. Although there are DIY asphalt maintenance products available, they do not offer the same value and standards our team of asphalt paving repair specialists.

Repair products require skill to apply and when done incorrectly can actually cause damage which may result in a project that is more expensive than what you would have spent having a professional repair and maintain your asphalt.

Q: How do I maintain my asphalt to keep it black for years to come?
Cracked or grey asphalt can make your property look old and dated.

To keep your asphalt looking black and new we recommend sealcoating and regular maintenance.

Things you can do on your own is applying weed killer along the edges (you can also pull the weeds yourself if you aren’t a fan of chemicals). Make sure to quickly treat any oil or gas spills. We regularly fill potholes and cracks so the pavement is sealed. This will avoid water damage while extending the life of your asphalt pavement.

Q: Can you repair asphalt potholes or cracks in the winter or cold weather months?
Yes. We use infrared asphalt repair technology to heat the asphalt and provide repairs to potholes or cracks. Depending on the condition of the pavement and the weather sometimes a temporary repair is required. When the weather warms up, a complete repair is done.
