Asphalt Maintenance Baltimore Winterc

Over time, asphalt pavement begins to deteriorate. In fact, it begins to deteriorate the moment it is first laid. Constant exposure to the elements – sunlight, rain, sleet, and snow – along with normal wear and tear can slowly (and sometimes not very slowly) cause asphalt pavement to break down, resulting in cracking, potholes, or worse.

Combat Winter Pavement Damage: Concrete Repair throughout Maryland

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Concrete Repair MarylandConcrete is a durable material that’s excellent for sidewalks, curbs, dumpster pads, and similar structures: durable, but not indestructible. Concrete repair is in every business owner, facility manager, or home owner association’s future. That’s just the way it is.

Freeze-Thaw Damage

We probably sound like a broken record, but winter, snow, and ice can wreak havoc on your pavement. Period. With the help of our good ole friend the freeze-thaw cycle, water works its way into even the smallest cracks, freezes, expands, and widens cracks. And this happens countless times during the winter months here in Maryland where the temperature goes up and down more than a rollercoaster.

“Any time you have weather where it is 60 degrees one day and 20 degrees the next, you’re going to have a significant impact on the pavement,” warns Rob Morosi, spokesman for the Michigan Department of Transportation.

Snow Plow Damage

As helpful as snow plows may be, they can also be a nightmare on your concrete pavement. Because snow plow operators can’t always see what lies beneath that fresh coat of snow, they sometimes hit curbs, speed bumps, wheel stops, and signage.

De-icing Chemical Damage

De-icing chemicals can wreak havoc on concrete. These chemicals, while great for melting snow and ice, also “interact with concrete, resulting is cracking, strength loss, and eventually pavement failure,” according to a 2002 federal government-funded study. Click Here to learn more.

The Solution to It All: Concrete repair.
