Asphalt Maintenance Tips for Fall


Last Updated on June 10, 2024

Asphalt paving provides a smooth and durable surface for motorists – but only when properly maintained. Maintenance is the art of keeping asphalt pavements in service thus ensuring minimal inconvenience to the public. We at Top Job Asphalt have prepared the following asphalt maintenance tips for fall to ensure your pavements, driveways, and sidewalks are prepared for the cooler months ahead.

#1. Clean the Area of Debris

Fall is the perfect time to clean the area of any debris. This requires a thorough asphalt or street cleaning service. Having your asphalt professionally cleaned can reveal any issues, such as cracks or potholes, which should be repaired immediately.

#2. Pay Attention to Standing Water

Standing water is often an indication of poor drainage – and where there is poor drainage, there are potholes or the possibility of potholes. To prevent further damage, and ensure the integrity of your surfaces, make repairs now before the problem grows (literally).

#3. Sealcoating & Crack Sealing

Sealcoating requires the weather to be over 55˚F. The forecast should also predict clear skies; sealing asphalt in the rain is a no-no. This will ensure a quality job. Crack sealing helps to prevent the occurrence of further surface damage over the winter.

#4. Patching Potholes

Patching helps to control further deterioration and expensive repair of the pavement. Without timely patching, water can get underneath the pavement, causing further damage to occur. Several patching methods exist including:

  • Quick Patching
  • Surface Patching
  • Full-Depth or Deep Patching
  • Spray-Injection Patching
  • Infrared Heater Patching
  • Cold Weather Emergency Patching

#5. Extensive Pothole Repair

Crews use hot mix asphalt to create a stable, permanent solution to any areas prone to potholes. Proper compaction is key! A properly compacted area should be overfilled to ensure it is able to withstand the weight of vehicles driving on it day in and out.

Great company to work with. We contacted Top Job to repair a county road that we dug across for an irrigation line. They were very professional yet friendly. Our job was completed quickly. We recommend this company.

I’m not sure how the service actually is, but some old guy in a Top Job Toyota was riding my butt today and flipped me off, or it was maybe an aggressive wave at the red light near the Logan library. Hope his day gets better. 12/8 at 230

Did a great job on the 3" overlay for my very old and deteriorated half circle driveway. Looks brand new. All the transitions to concrete are near perfectly matched when I wasn't sure they could do it. It's almost weird now not feeling the bump driving out of the garage or over our bridge.

Top Job paved our asphalt driveways and we couldn't be happier. The service, quality and price were the best I could find and I looked everywhere! Great job guys! I'll be calling back when I start my next project.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Very impressed with the quality of their work and the organization of the company. The project estimator was spot on as to when the bid would be received and the work was professional  from start to finish. I appreciated the opportunity for a walkthrough inspection after the crack filling was completed as I had some very large cracks in the asphalt. I give this company a ten out of ten (which I really do) and highly recommend them.
