Assuming that the initial asphalt pavement was designed and constructed properly, the primary cause of failure is the penetration of water into the asphalt base. Asphalt failure often begins with the oxidation of an untreated pavement surface which causes the asphalt to become dry and brittle. The top layer of fine particles erodes, exposing the larger aggregate and leading to small cracks on the surface. These cracks will grow if left untreated, allowing water to penetrate to the base of the pavement. When water penetrates the underlying base, the base material softens, shifts and settles, leading to further cracking and a depression in the surface. As water pools in the depressed area, the asphalt further deteriorates and becomes unstable. When the pavement reaches this stage, removal and replacement of the old asphalt, along with the replacement and compaction of the underlying base material, is often the only remedy. We are happy to provide you a free onsite inspection to help you identify any early signs of asphalt degradation before they lead to major asphalt failure. By performing these annual inspections to identify and correct any problems at their earliest stages, you will maximize the useful life of your parking lot.
