After having your new paver installation Greenwich CT it is important to keep up with maintenance for optimal results. Asphalt driveways are known for their durability and endurance with the proper care. There are certain things which may cause damage to your new asphalt driveway such as water, poor installation, using rock salt and heavy loads.
It is important to allow your driveway to fully cure after installation before use. This could take three to five days and even after this time it could use more time to be completely cured. It is also important to keep up with the cleanliness of your asphalt driveway in order to avoid early decomposition and oil loss. Water should not be sitting on the asphalt due to the mixing of chemicals and damage it will cause the asphalt.
Extreme heat and cold can also be detrimental to a newly paved asphalt driveway. If the asphalt becomes too hot it can cause softening and deformities. Very cold temperatures will cause the asphalt to become hard and more brittle making it more susceptible to cracking. In the case of extreme temperatures, the asphalt should be avoided and not be subjected to holding heavy weights. In extremely hot temperatures, cars should not be sitting in one part of the asphalt for too long in order to avoid overexposure to heat and UV rays in one spot. Excessive UV ray exposure can cause top asphalt layers to dry and become damaged. Too much heat and UV ray exposure also has the ability to cause the asphalts oil to evaporate and become very brittle. A sealing coat should be applied to the asphalt once a year, especially prior to the hot summer months.
