    What Does It Cost To Resurface An Asphalt Driveway?

    home wash iconRight here are some realities about asphalt. Like many other things, asphalt is not as good as it used to be since it contains oils and resins that are of a lot greater worth when used in various other products, and developments in technology have discovered methods to remove them. So the asphalt that we have today does not hold a lot of the “glue” that it used to do.

    Given this loss of resins and oils, asphalt is much more susceptible to attack from the weather condition which triggers oxidation when the oxygen in water and air attacks the asphalt binder chemically causing it to break down. This brings about breaking which will certainly bring about more rain entering the process. Asphalt is also struck by ultraviolet light from the sun which damages the links between the carbon bonds.
