    What Does It Cost To Resurface An Asphalt Driveway?

    Given this loss of resins and oils, asphalt is a lot more vulnerable to attack from the climate which causes oxidation when the oxygen in water and air attacks the asphalt binder chemically causing it to break down.

A layer of asphalt of 2″ will be enough to support vehicles and light trucks, but does this allow for the weight of delivery trucks as well as garbage trucks? The answer is that it does not, so it is best to lay a thicker level of asphalt on the locations that would certainly be used by them.

    One outstanding suggestion to expand the life of an asphalt driveway is to give it a sealing layer around 12 months after it has been laid and is completely healed. This will certainly aid considerably to stop the ingress of dampness and will also show ultraviolet light.
    If your asphalt driveway is starting to show signs of cracking then it definitely requires attention. It requires a correct examination from a professional since it may be possible to fill up the fractures with an elastomeric sealer. Bigger fractures greater than an inch) must be full of a hot mix of asphalt.
