The Pavement Life Cycle
Stages of Asphalt pavements
Pavement failure is caused by a number of variables including, water intrusion, stress from heavy vehicles, expansion and contraction from seasonal temperature changes, and sun exposure. It is important to keep up with proper maintenance like crack and asphalt sealing along with asphalt inlays or overlays to extend the life. Pavements will however eventually decline to the point where they need to be replaced.
Asphalt pavements properly designed should last 25 years or more. The life of the pavement can be substantially extended with the professional advice from the team at Biondi Paving & Engineering.
Having a contractor, with decades of experience, evaluate your pavement to determine its specific maintenance needs will help the customer spend its money wisely.
Without knowing the age of the pavement determining where the pavement is in the life cycle is not easy to determine. An expert opinion then becomes invaluable.
As a general rule of thumb using the following five stages you can get some idea of the type of maintenance work that may need to be performed.
