There are a number of different ways to deal with asphalt damage. For the most serious cases, resurfacing or repaving are typically recommended.
As with many materials, aging can affect the strength and integrity of asphalt, rendering it more vulnerable to damage over time. The best way to give new life to asphalt surfaces that are riddled with cracks and potholes may be through asphalt resurfacing. This involves repairing the existing asphalt and covering it with an overlay to create a new surface. This method does not require the removal of any existing asphalt, which helps to cut down on time and costs. However, the new surface with have strength and integrity that is comparable to newly installed asphalt, reducing the likelihood of further problems in the immediate future.
Although asphalt is highly durable, it has a limited life expectancy varying from 5 to 25 years depending on the amount of maintenance and care it receives. As asphalt nears the end of this life cycle, it may no longer be feasible to repair the ever-growing number of problems that emerge. In cases where the asphalt is deteriorated beyond repair, the only option may be to completely repave the damaged section. Before repaving an area, the old asphalt will need to be torn out and removed. This require more time and intensive labor, which makes it the most expensive option for restoring a deteriorated asphalt surface, however, once an asphalt surface has been repaved, its life cycle resets and it will not likely require any major repairs for many more years.
