Many people anticipate winter to make driving to work more challenging, with potholes often appearing due to snowfall that causes major disruptions in our daily lives. Severe snowstorms not only leave roads messy, but they also expose asphalt pavement to cracks and potholes – leaving homeowners, businesses, and municipalities with few options for preventive maintenance from these cracks and potholes. But what can residential homeowners, associations, businesses, and municipalities do about it?
It may be the dead of winter right now, but soon enough all of the snow will melt, the temperatures will begin to rise, and we will find ourselves on the verge of spring. With that comes more light during the day, flowers blooming, grass growing but also a large number of potholes. The winter weather does significant damage to the asphalt surfaces in our area. Moisture finds its way beneath the surface and causes cracks which get bigger and bigger and lead to nasty potholes. These potholes can appear in your driveway, sidewalk, parking lot or anywhere else on your property with asphalt.
There may not be much you can do about these cracks and potholes now, but as the snow melts and the temperatures rise, it will be the perfect time to repair your asphalt surfaces to prevent driving and walking hazards for your guests

It may come as a surprise to some, but professional sealcoating of driveways and parking lots is not done for only cosmetic reasons. The services we provide can actually extend the life of a driveway or parking lot. For example, if your driveway is damaged, and one of the problem areas is the apron that connects your garage to your driveway, you could have a potential safety issue on your hands.

If water is able to penetrate the seam between the garage apron and the driveway, the asphalt will eventually
