Prepare for Spring with 5 Post-Winter Pavement Repairs

Learn how to prepare for spring with five post-winter pavement repairs.

Winter weather can wreak havoc on many parts of your property. The pipes, pavement, and other aspects can break down under the pressure, weight, and constant freezing and refreezing. Without the proper preventative measures and maintenance throughout the season, you could find a great deal of expensive damage that you’ll have to repair. Check out how you can prepare for spring with these five post-winter pavement repairs.

Check the Cracks

If there were any existing cracks in the pavement, it’s likely that the winter made them worse. If your pavement hadn’t been recently sealed, the water from sleet and snow could seep into the pavement and freeze. This causes the cracks to spread.  

Look for New Damage

Check for divots and potholes. Once the snow melts and the salt and other debris wash away in the rain, it’ll give you a better idea of the condition of your pavement. In addition to those existing cracks you may have already been familiar with, look for new damage from the ice and maybe even the snow plow truck.   

Is the Surface Level?

Pavement repair isn’t just about holes and cracks – it’s also about ensuring that the surface is level and safe. Uneven surfaces can cause accidents for vehicles and pedestrians alike. If you find that the surface of your pavement isn’t even, you can have professionals grind down the pavement or apply patches where necessary.  

Fills and Sealcoating

To prevent further damage, have asphalt filling and sealcoating services applied to the pavement. These have to wait until the dead of winter has passed, making them the perfect way to prepare your pavement for spring. This is a large project as it should span the entirety of your property, so be sure to plan accordingly.  

Have a Consultation

Sometimes, it’s hard to tell exactly what you’re looking at if you don’t have a trained eye. Sure, we can all recognize a pothole and cracks, but it could be more complicated to know what services are needed.  Therefore, have a consultation by professionals to get a better idea of the types of repairs that will be necessary.
