What Does It Cost To Resurface An Asphalt Driveway?

home wash iconRight here are some facts concerning asphalt. Like many various other things, asphalt is not just as good as it used to be due to the fact that it has oils and resins that are of a lot higher value when utilized in various other products, and advances in technology have actually found methods to remove them. So the asphalt that we have today doesn’t hold so much of the “adhesive” that it used to do.

Given this loss of resins and oils, asphalt is more at risk to attack from the weather condition which creates oxidation when the oxygen in water and air attacks the asphalt binder chemically triggering it to break down. This causes cracking which will result in more rain entering the process. Asphalt is also attacked by ultraviolet light from the sun which breaks the links between the carbon bonds. Salt also functions as a driver, so this may be worth taking into consideration if you live by the sea. In addition, fuel and oil leakages will certainly penetrate asphalt making it soften.
