Three Signs That Your Asphalt Driveway Needs Repair

1. Alligator cracks or other minor cracks

One of the most common issues with asphalt driveway is the occurrence of alligator cracks. These cracks occur in spider-web shaped patterns. Usually, they are relatively shallow and small cracks. With asphalt, though, minor cracks will continue to grow until they become major issues.

If your driveway is covered with alligator cracks, you might consider investing in asphalt resurfacing in Sydney. Resurfacing your driveway can make it look brand new (for a fraction of the price of a full replacement) and can save you from having to worry about those cracks growing—for quite some time, at least.

2. The driveway isn’t level

Is your drive warping, or developing areas where rainwater pools freely? Driveways can develop levelling inconsistencies over time, whether due to heavy vehicles driving on them repeatedly or because the base was poorly installed. Either way, calling for an asphalt repair in Sydney will give you a safer and more even driveway that doesn’t have drainage issues.

3. The driveway’s colour has faded substantially

With asphalt, you can assess the health of the driveway by looking at the colour. A newly paved, sealed or resurfaced driveway will have a dark black colour. Over time, the colour will trend away from black and towards grey. An extremely faded driveway might still be in decent condition, but it is more brittle than it used to be. To avoid cracking and damage, you might consider scheduling an asphalt resurfacing appointment with Western Road Services, as a preventative maintenance measure.
