Is your Concrete or Asphalt in need of repair? Here are a few simple ways to determine if you need to contact a professional (432-315-2390).
Whether you're a business or homeowner, you most likely have concrete or asphalt in the form of a parking lot, patio or garage. Most often than not we tend to dismiss and not pay attention to these materials throughout the year. Of course concrete is a very strong material, however, due to its constant exposure to the elements and or vehicles, the material will begin to show signs of wear and tear sooner than you think. So, when is the right time to call for repairs? We have compiled for you a few signs to look out for that can aid you in determining if a repair is needed.
Cracks & Pooling
One of the most obvious signs of concrete in need of repair is the appearance of cracks. Often these are caused by sudden climate change such as a harsh winter or an extreme summer that causes the earth underneath the concrete to expand and detract evidently causing cracks on the concrete. Therefore, having professional driveway Pavers would be the best possible route for your home or business. Indoor concrete isn't immune to this type of damage, in fact, this might cost you more in the long term if it goes un-repaired. Concrete Pavers would be the recommended route in this instance as well. In addition to cracking, another sign to look for is pooling. What exactly is pooling? Pooling is the collection of water in one or more spots on concrete surfaces. If not repaired by pavers, the water can and will further damage the concrete.
Crocodile Cracking & Asphalt Paving
What exactly is Crocodile Cracking? This term refers to the appearance of cracks on neglected asphalt and it is one of the most costly repairs people find themselves in. This can easily be prevented by patching the cracks, however, most times the damage is just too much for a simple sealant treatment. Therefore we urge business and homeowners to pave their asphalt by means of a professional company that can re-do the whole thing. A professional company will recommend re-paving the whole asphalt area and not just the damaged area as the damage is most likely present all over your lot.
