If there are huge puddles on the surface after rain that do not drain away fast, or if rough fractures occur, the asphalt has been damaged. The risk for harm to your property from a poorly maintained driveway cannot be overstated.

Reasons to invest in asphalt resurfacing in Ottawa

Asphalt resurfacing is the process of removing and replacing the top layers of your existing asphalt. The new surface, which is usually between 1-2” thick, typically extends the lifespan of your driveway or parking lot by 8-15 years. Even better, it makes your pavement look brand new at a fraction of the original cost.

Over time, asphalt parking lots and driveways deteriorate to the point where simple fixes and patching are no longer sufficient. In contrast to sealcoating, which is used as preventative maintenance, asphalt resurfacing involves adding new asphalt to your existing pavement to repair damage. It’s time for resurfacing if there are any cracks, potholes, water pools, or other issues.

In order to provide a smooth, long-lasting final surface, our procedure makes sure that asphalt is correctly laid, tamped, and compacted while it is still warm. Contact us today to get started on resurfacing your Ottawa property.

“Great job! I gotta say I was a bit leery about buying from a company selling door to door but since there was no contract or deposit required up front I was willing to take a chance on them. And it paid off. The team that arrived to do the work were very professional in their look, their speech and in their work. On time, clean, respectful and great work for a fair price. What more can you ask for?”

Applying a fresh layer of asphalt over an existing pavement surface is known as asphalt resurfacing. This fresh layer, also referred to as an overlay, offers a smooth, long-lasting surface and is normally 1.5 to 2 inches thick. The beauty and functionality of worn-out or decaying asphalt driveways, parking lots, and roads can be restored affordably.

If you detect a number of deterioration indicators, such as extensive cracks, potholes, surface depressions, fading, and rough texture, you might require asphalt resurfacing. Additionally, it’s a good clue that your pavement can benefit from resurfacing if it’s older than 15-20 years and shows symptoms of wear.

Yes, to a certain extent, potholes and cracks can be fixed by resurfacing the asphalt. The surface is normally cleaned and any significant cracks or potholes are patched before resurfacing. It’s important to remember, though, that resurfacing works best when the base beneath it is structurally strong. There may be a need for more involved repairs if the base is seriously damaged.

To prolong the life of a resurfaced asphalt surface, regular maintenance is key. This includes:

  • Sealcoating
  • Crack Repair
  • Proper Drainage
  • Regular Cleaning
  • Avoid Heavy Loads
  • Periodic Inspections

By following a proper maintenance regimen, you can maximize the lifespan and appearance of your resurfaced asphalt pavement.

Not always! We’ll pay a visit to your home or commercial property and inspect the premises to determine the best course of action. When possible, we will recommend asphalt repair, sealing and perhaps some repainting. In other cases the pavement is at or beyond its useful life cycle and the parking lot needs to be repaved.

We gladly invite you to read our reviews on Google and other trusted review sites. At Patch and Seal, we take great pride in the commercial property paving & repair work we do, and we’re proud of the reviews, referrals and repeat business we’ve earned for our Ottawa asphalt repair & paving services.

Asphalt resurfacing, also known as overlaying, is a process of applying a new layer of asphalt over the existing surface of a driveway or road. There are numerous steps in this procedure: initially, the old asphalt is cleaned, and any underlying repairs are performed as needed. After that, a fresh layer of asphalt is laid down evenly, often measuring 1.5 to 2.5 inches thick. The driveway now has a smoother, newer surface, which enhances both the driveway’s beauty and usability.
When the base of a driveway is still in good condition but the top layer has visible wear, such as cracks, small potholes, and surface roughness, asphalt resurfacing is frequently chosen as a cost-effective option.
When the foundation of your driveway is sturdy and in quite excellent shape but the top layer of asphalt is beginning to age or sustain minor damage, you should think about resurfacing it. Widespread cracking, tiny potholes, surface degradation, and fading are some indicators that resurfacing may be required.
Resurfacing can revitalize the beauty and functionality of your driveway without the need for a complete replacement if these problems are mostly cosmetic and the base is still solid.
The quality of the materials used, the local environment, the maintenance procedures used, and the volume of traffic the driveway sees all affect how long an asphalt resurfacing project will last. A professionally done asphalt resurfacing operation often lasts 10 to 15 years, sometimes even longer.
The lifespan of the resurfaced driveway can be increased with routine maintenance, such as swiftly filling in small cracks, avoiding heavy or pointy objects that could scratch the surface, and occasional resealing. However, it’s critical to remember that adequate upkeep and care are essential to guaranteeing the longevity of the resurfacing project.
