Winter is the most damaging time of year for paved surfaces. The freezing and thawing process rips through any solid substance, and pavement is no exception. Winter cold can shatter anything, but if asphalt is applied to hard surfaces, it can delay the effect of ice and snow. However, it is important to lay asphalt in good time to get the best results.
When paving in the winter, the paving process requires extra care. The temperature of the asphalt mix must be at a constant 92-95°F, which means that the paving contractor must be vigilant and maintain the proper mix temperature to complete the project successfully. Nonetheless, with a little preparation and training, paving contractors can still complete projects without a hitch.
If the asphalt mix has been stored, it can be used to repair existing paved areas. However, in the winter, the asphalt mix may cool down, making it unsuitable for paving a new surface. Paving during the winter is more expensive and requires more time than desired. A temporary layer of hot mix asphalt must be applied on the surface before the asphalt is installed. This layer should be at least two inches thick and must be clearly marked.
Although the winter climate can make it difficult for paving, it is still possible to finish the work. However, if the pavement is too frozen, the process will take a break for a few days and the temperatures are warm enough. For this reason, some homeowners may want to consider hiring a professional contractor to complete the project. A good option is TrustedPros, an online directory that connects homeowners to trustworthy contractors.
Although asphalt driveways can be paved during the winter, it is not advisable to do so in cold climates. The combination of frozen ground with moisture will result in a poor job and large cracks. Whether or not you use the best repair kits and sealcoating tanks will not help if the ground is frozen or below freezing. In most cases, it is better to wait until the conditions are right.
If it is too cold for paving to be done in the winter, you should schedule the work at the beginning of spring. The asphalt will last longer when the climate is dry. This will help it stay in good condition. It is also necessary to make sure that the asphalt mixture is not too hot to avoid cracks and potholes.
There are several factors that will affect the time required for paving. The ambient temperature is an important factor in paving, but it is less important than the ambient temperature. The temperature of the ground and the moisture level affects the flow of the hot-mix asphalt. In addition to the ambient temperature, the amount of sunlight that hits the Earth will also affect the compaction time.
Winter is also a good time for restripe parking lots. It is important to keep the asphalt as clean as possible, and this includes removing debris that has accumulated over the past few months. Moreover, it is necessary to remove any items that might impede the plowing process. If you can’t avoid paving during the winter, you can contact a company that specializes in winter asphalt maintenance.
The winter can expose the weaknesses of most materials, including asphalt. As a result, pavement can suffer significant wear throughout the winter. Cracks and ice can weaken the surface, causing it to buckle. Even the best asphalt can be affected by snow during the paving process. It is vital to get this work done early in winter to avoid further problems. Learn about us.
