Paving Questions and Answers

Frequently Asked Questions about Paving

As the leading experts in York and Adams County on paving, we hear a number of questions from potential and existing customers.  Take a look at the most frequently asked questions and our advice to homeowners and businesses.

  1. Do I really need to fill every crack right away?

 The simple answer is yes. The longer a crack goes unfilled, the more likely water will leak in and cause further damage. There are plenty of techniques you can try at home to repair cracks, or you contact a professional paving company to help with the process.

 2. How long will an asphalt driveway last?

There are a number of things that you have to take into consideration. First, your asphalt is outdoors and gets hit by sun, water, hail, chemicals, and other harsh substances that overtime cause deterioration. The best way to maintain your investment is with sealcoating.

Sealcoating is a protectant that covers your asphalt and minimizes the damage caused by these hazards. When a new driveway or parking lot is installed, you should schedule an initial sealcoating for 90 days later. Afterward, sealcoating should be completed every two years.

  1. How do I know I’m getting value for my money?

When you are looking to hire a paving company in York and Adams County, make sure you ask questions. Are they quoting a one-inch overlay or two-inch overlay? Are they quoting a patch or (full depth) patches? We specify construction parameters using the best methods to install or repair asphalt paving.  This gives you the longest life for your pavement.

  1. If my pavement was professionally installed, why do I need to worry about maintenance?

Even the best  surfaces are subject to the wear and tear caused by time, weather, and traffic. No paved surface is a permanent solution. By undertaking a program of planned pavement maintenance, you can save money in the long run.

Your pavement surface will remain sound, usable, and safe.  Extensive downtime needed to repair deep cracks and potholes will be reduced or eliminated. Proper maintenance can significantly extend the life of existing pavements, and it will help to protect your paving investment.
