Are You Ready for Asphalt Repair Season?

Asphalt Repair Contractors Grand Rapids, MI

It’s asphalt repair season! Are you ready? Our contractors offer asphalt repair to help you maintain the appearance and function of paved surfaces. Whether you need to fix a pothole or maintain your paved surface, you can trust us for excellent results.

Unlike other asphalt companies, we use specialty equipment for asphalt repair. We also have a milling machine to mill and replace asphalt.

Here’s what you need to know about getting ready for the asphalt repair season.

Main Causes of Potholes

Asphalt expands and contracts with fluctuating temperatures, which is why it’s important you call our parking lot and driveway contractors as soon as you notice a problem. Potholes are often the result of cracks that were left unrepaired the previous season.

As asphalt contracts, cracks widen and allow water to seep underneath the paved surface. Once the temperature drops, this trapped water expands as it freezes. When the temperature rises, the ice melts and leaves behind an empty space beneath the weakened surface of your parking lot or driveway.

At this point, all it takes is the weight of a vehicle to make the weakened surface collapse and form a pothole.

Pothole Repair

We offer pothole and asphalt repair to keep your driveway or parking lot in good condition. We understand that potholes can be dangerous to drivers and pedestrians. The last thing you want is to have someone trip over a pothole and sue you to cover their medical bills. Fortunately, our contractors offer asphalt repair when weather permits so you can maintain safe parking lot conditions.

We recommend that you fill potholes as soon as possible for your peace of mind.

Catch Basin Repair

Our asphalt contractors are knowledgeable and experienced in catch basin repair so you don’t have to worry about standing water in your parking lot. Catch basins are designed to collect runoff from your asphalt parking lot, including solids like leaf litter.

Since catch basins are essential for preventing standing water in your parking lot, it’s important to monitor their condition over time. If you suspect you need catch basin repair, don’t hesitate to call our asphalt contractors as soon as possible. We’ll be able to determine if your catch basin drain is the cause of standing water in your parking lot. From there, we’ll be able to recommend your next steps for catch basin repair.

Drain Repair

We’re able to repair your catch basin drain so you can have peace of mind the next time it rains. We understand that you depend on your catch basin to avoid standing water in your parking lot, which is why we offer our asphalt repair services for customers just like you.

The sooner you repair a catch basin drain, the less likely you’ll have long-term damage to your driveway or parking lot. The longer that water stands on your asphalt pavement, the more likely it’ll seep into the foundation below. Once the foundation is damaged, the pavement will need to be replaced.
