An asphalt driveway is one of the most important and expensive investments you’ll make for your home or commercial property. Maintaining your investment will extend the asphalt’s lifespan and keep it protected from different elements. Having your asphalt driveway effectively cared for by a professional and experienced paving company in Toronto could have your investment last for several years.

How often do you need asphalt paving services and what services do you need? West York Paving unpacks it for you to help keep your driveway or parking lot maintained and long-lasting.

Signs To Look For

Your asphalt pavement may begin to show signs of deterioration or damage as a result of harsh climate elements. The Canadian winters can be harsh on the asphalt and summers can be scorching, both of which will wear on your asphalt. It’s important to monitor your investment for any dramatic changes earlier on to avoid more costly repairs later. Here are some of the signs to look out for:

  • Minor cracking in the asphalt
  • Fading on the surface
  • Warping or severe sinking
  • Significant asphalt cracking, including potholes

What Services Do You Need?

If you’ve spotted the previous signs in your asphalt pavement, it’s imperative to take immediate action in restoring it to prevent future, expensive damage. If you’ve only detected minor cracks on the pavement, you may not need to have complete re-paving services applied. West York Paving offers a wide variety of asphalt paving services, including preventative and maintenance services to ensure the surface is cosmetically appealing. For more serious asphalt damage, you may need to have the asphalt resurface. If you’re completely unsure, leave it to West York Paving to assess your driveway or parking lot for damage to determine exactly what services you’ll require by us.

How Long Should My Asphalt Pavement Lot Last?

If you have your asphalt installed by one of the more professional, highly experienced paving companies in Toronto, like West York Paving, you can trust your investment will last for several years. Our asphalt paving company in Toronto can install an asphalt pavement parking lot or driveway that will last about 20-30 years. However, it’s crucial to keep your pavement maintained often and resurfaced when necessary. Resurfacing the lot should occur when about 30-40% of the surface was deteriorated to alligator cracking. Our resurfacing process can restore the asphalt and add about 8-15 years to its lifespan.

Your asphalt driveway or parking lot may require a replacement if both the surface and overall design of it has degraded and is now a safety concern.
