Has your driveway recently cracked? Is your pavement looking decrepit? When was the last time you inspected it? Asphalt maintenance in autumn?
For many consumers, maintenance is an alien concept.
Once they have installed a driveway or a pavement, they tend to overlook the maintenance it requires.
The primary reason is to save money, which is understandable, however seasonal maintenance not only increases the life of asphalt pavements/driveways but it also adds to your asset’s aesthetics.
In Derry, Hampshire, autumn cut short with high precipitation levels and chances of snow as early as October.
As discussed in previous articles, damp weather conditions are not suitable for installation of asphalt as it requires a sizable duration to cool down.
The weather plays an important role in maintaining the pavements.
The best time to get your driveway done or maintained when the air temperature is around 45 Fahrenheit.
There should be no chance of rain which cancels out almost 5 months in Derry, New Hampshire.
Furthermore, as confirmed by weather reports, the weather should not be cold as it interferes with the cooling down of asphalt way quickly than its desirable.
The snowy temperature in Derry stays for around 6 months however most of the snow concentrated in January. Hence it is always advisable to go for your pavement maintenance before the temperature starts to go south.
Sunny weather does help with the settling in of asphalt, and also its maintenance. Derry, New Hampshire gets around 200 sunny days annually with the hottest month being July.
Therefore early summer is the ideal time to get done with your pavements. If you can’t do it in the early summer, then you can delay it till autumn but not any further.
Therefore the fall season is the last bout for you to maintain your asphalt pavement and save it from potential trouble.
If you delay it, then you may be too late and your pavement may get damaged beyond repair by the snow, hale, etc.
Furthermore, if any contractor does agree to repair your driveway or pavement in winter, the asphalt may not settle as well as it should and your driveway may end up all bumpy and looking battered.
The repair and maintenance also depends on whether your contractor is using cold-mix or hot-mix.
Hot-mix needs ample time and sun to cool down compared to the cold-mix, however even the latter needs a couple of weeks to cool down properly.
