Over time, there are several different things that happen to an asphalt surface that, if not dealt with in a timely manner, can become big problems. These are the result of traffic, weather, and temperature and any delay in repair can end up costing far more in the long run. Here are some of the possible issues you may be facing:
Alligatoring Is a sign of severely deteriorating asphalt, and is very common in the Amarillo area. It occurs when moisture gets into existing cracks and compounds the problem by continuing to erode the asphalt base, causing the “alligator” look. With the unpredictable nature of the weather in Amarillo and the Texas panhandle, this is a constant threat to your paved surface. With continued moisture a pot hole will soon follow, and in a few short months your problem only escalates. Application of “Gator Seal” will protect from moisture and extend the life of your surface.
Along with unsightly “alligatoring” and those frustrating pot holes, cracks, which are very common to Amarillo, allow moisture to erode the base and asphalt. Application of “Crack Seal Stretch” (Hot Pour) will protect from further moisture as well as reduce a safety hazard. This is your first line of defense against further damage from the harsh Amarillo climate.
The hot Amarillo sun takes its toll on any paved surface, and faded asphalt doesn’t always appear to be damaged, but it shows its age, and is a sign that the petroleum base is breaking down on the asphalt surface. This is the first step to asphalt damage. Application of “Gem Seal” Seal coating is an affordable step to restoring the beauty and extending the life of your investment.
Vehicle fluids penetrate and break down asphalt strength and durability. Many companies remove these spots and patches which is costly. Application and regular service of “ACT Bioremediation” microbes clean up these areas quickly and effectively. This product is a very cost effective way to address those unsightly oil spots.
