At some point during the life of your asphalt pavement, you are going to notice that it is not as attractive as it once was. Perhaps the color has faded, leaving your pavement color an unappealing gray. Perhaps you notice that there are a number of cracks that have developed in the pavement’s surface. Perhaps there are low spots, soft spots or potholes. Regardless of what attracted your attention, you may be wondering whether you need paving or sealcoating.
Paving or Sealcoating | Houston, TX
Is Sealcoating the Solution?
Sealcoating may be the solution to your pavement woes if the damage is limited to a few small areas or your primary concern is the faded color. If the pavement does not show signs of widespread foundation destabilization, you will likely save money by having the damages repaired prior to sealcoating. Foundation damage typically manifests as potholes, alligator cracking or very wide cracks. If this type of damage is present over more than about 40 percent of the pavement, you will probably be better off to rebuild rather than repave or repair.
Is Repaving the Solution?
Widespread damage that does not point to a damaged foundation can often be addressed by repaving. One particularly noteworthy possibility is an overlay, which is a course of new asphalt that is placed over the existing pavement after repairs have been made. An overlay will look and last virtually the same as new asphalt pavement, but the cost is significantly less. Because repaired areas may be visible after sealcoating, overlays are ideal for subdivisions and commercial properties that require the best curb appeal possible.
