Now that we’ve gotten into the full swing of winter, you may have started to notice its effects around you. While this season may bring holiday cheer and cozy fireside gatherings, it also brings challenges for property owners, especially when it comes to their asphalt driveways and parking lots. At Total Asphalt Paving, we understand the unique challenges that winter weather poses to your asphalt surfaces, and we're here to offer solutions and assistance to ensure your property remains safe and functional.

The Freeze-Thaw Cycle: A Silent Culprit

One of the primary ways winter weather affects asphalt is through the freeze-thaw cycle. When temperatures fluctuate above and below freezing, the water that has penetrated the porous surface of your asphalt expands and contracts. This continuous expansion and contraction can lead to cracks and surface deterioration, ultimately compromising the integrity of your driveway or parking lot.

The Perils of Snow and Ice Removal

While it's essential to keep your property safe by removing snow and ice, improper snow removal techniques can also damage your asphalt surfaces.

Potholes: Winter's Unwanted Gift

Potholes are a common sight on roadways during winter, and your asphalt surfaces are not immune to their formation. The freeze-thaw cycle, combined with the weight of vehicles driving over the weakened asphalt, can create the perfect conditions for potholes to develop. These unsightly and potentially hazardous depressions not only detract from your property's aesthetics but can also lead to costly vehicle damage and safety concerns.
