Low temperatures and snow in Colorado, are the leading factors for crack formation in your driveway. The greatest culprit is water seeping into the cracks and sitting under the asphalt which eventually destroys the underlying base of the asphalt. Once this damage has travelled, it is far more costly to address these problems than taking care of the smaller cracks as they appear.
Repairing the cracks before the snow sets in can achieve optimal bond results from the repair compound. Preparing your asphalt driveway before winter will give you many more years of good, solid use than waiting for the major cracks to appear.
5 Preparation Tips For Your Asphalt Driveway.
- Repair Cracks
If cracks are visible, repairing cracks should be on top of your to-do list to prevent erosion of the sub base. Contact us to repair and seal the cracks before the first winter snowstorm.
- Sealcoat Your Driveway
After repairing larger cracks, sealcoating will fill the smaller and tiny cracks to prevent water penetration.
- Inspect Your Driveway and the Surrounding Area
Inspecting your driveway and the surrounding area for cracks before seasonal changes can avoid bigger and costlier problems in the future.
- Check for Good Drainage
The biggest risk during winter months is water damage. To avoid water damage during winter, check for pooling and standing water and make sure your driveway has good drainage.
- Keep the Driveway Clean
Give your driveway a good clean and remove dirt and debris to improve drainage and avoid water damage throughout winter.
