It’s probably happened to you: The remaining snow from another frigid winter has melted, receded in spring’s warmth, and then you see it: a crack or pothole in your driveway. But it’s just a crack, right? How bad can it be?
While a small crack in your driveway or parking lot may seem like a minor inconvenience, it can be the first step leading toward bigger problems. Freezing water, excessive heat, the expansion and contraction of its sand base, or the shift of the ground, tree roots and overloading can all put pressure on asphalt. Cracks that are half-an-inch or bigger allow water to reach the sub-base of your driveway or parking lot. From there, as water collects, freezes and thaws, it leads to greater cracking and further deterioration. Potholes in parking lots can also lead to damaging customers’ vehicles, and a bigger headache for you.
