Asphalt Pavement Maintenance Cycle

There is no exact formula in how long your asphalt pavement is going to last. It comes down to many factors such as freeze-thaw cycles (how bad was the winter season), weather patterns (did you need to salt a lot in the winter, was there excess heat or sunlight over the summer), drainage conditions in your lot (are the catch basins or storm drains functioning properly), and also the soil condition underneath your asphalt.


Life Cycle and Maintenance Schedule of Asphalt

Get the most out of the life of your asphalt with the following schedule:
1-4 Years
Asphalt Emulsion Sealcoat
When minor surface erosion begins and surface begins to fade. If done earlier pavement stays smoother.
5-8 Years
Chip Sealcoat
When surface is course and to avoid water permeation and cracking with accelerates oxidation.
9-13 Years
Chip Sealcoat or Possible Asphalt Resurfacing
When multiple pavement failures occur. Surface becomes increasingly porous and coarse, increasing cracking and repairs.
14-20 Years
Heavy Chip Sealcoat or Asphalt Resurfacing
When repairs become necessary. Loss of Surface, Major Pavement Failures, and Cracking
20+ Years
Site Reconstruction or Replacement
