Here are some signs that your asphalt surface needs a repair:

1. Pesky Potholes

Even though Elsa is known for its blistering heat, the temperature on a winter’s night goes down to as low as 49 degrees. Water below the asphalt surface freezes and then melts during the day, leading to a cycle of expansion and contraction. This repetitive cycle causes repeated contraction and expansion to happen which then, over time, causes the ground to weaken.

When the ground has weakened enough, it breaks apart and creates potholes.

Potholes are the main reason why vehicles end up with flat tires and superficial car damage. And the only way to repair potholes is by resurfacing and repaving to ensure smooth and leveled-out driveways and roads.

2. Large Bothersome Cracks

Large cracks on the road are the bane of every driver’s existence. They cause water to seep in and later freeze when the temperatures are extremely low – which then leads to potholes. Large cracks are also open invitations to oil, salt, and gas to enter. This causes large cracks to get even larger, wider, and deeper if not resurfaced or replaced on time.

3. Faded & Discolored

Scorching Texan weather will cause your driveway to fade in color. Intense sun rays and harsh UV rays will – and do – discolor your asphalt surface and cause it to weaken. This is why we stress getting your asphalt surface seal coated to prolong the surface’s life and help maintain its color for several years to come.

4. Drainage Issues

Water pooling on your driveway is another sign that your asphalt surface needs either a repair or replacement. Drainage issues result from your asphalt surface not being at a uniformed level. When your ground is uneven, it will naturally collect water into sunken areas and create a pool.

This water pool, which now has been sitting still for several days and weeks, weakens your asphalt surface and breaks the surface apart. With an asphalt repair or replacement, your driveway surface will be leveled-out to ensure water pools, cracks, and potholes aren’t formed in the future.
