5 Signs Your Asphalt Needs Replacing

Gann Asphalt & Concrete is a trusted name for commercial paving and maintenance in Kansas City, Missouri. They offer some of the latest repair methods, including asphalt resurfacing. However, many KC area property owners don’t know that this service may not work for their parking lot or driveway.

The Gann Asphalt Resurfacing vs. Replacement Guide

06 Asphalt Resurfacing Blog 2

Knowing whether to resurface or replace your parking lot is a game-changer. Our team is dedicated to helping our local property owners understand their options. Here, we’ll explore the differences between resurfacing and replacement to help you make an informed decision.

 

Resurfacing
Also called overlay, the process involves removing the surface and applying a new layer. If the underlying structure is intact, this process can add 8 to 15 years to the life of your parking lot or roadway. Choosing a reputable paving contractor like Gann Asphalt & Concrete ensures the resurfacing is done correctly.

Replacement
Replacement involves completely removing the pavement and essentially repaving. Our experts recommend replacement when the repair cost outweighs the benefits, but how do you know if it’s right for your paved area?

Signs Your Asphalt Needs Replacing

  1. Alligator Cracking: Resembling an alligator’s skin, these cracks indicate severe structural damage.
  2. Discoloration: Faded, flaking, or stained blacktop suggests oxidation and deterioration.
  3. Crumbling Edges: Eroding edges point to foundational issues that resurfacing can’t fix.
  4. Rutting: Depressions where vehicles commonly drive signal underlying problems.
  5. Uneven Surface/Sinkage: The foundation is compromised if your pavement is uneven or sinking.

Even if it doesn’t result in pavement failure, damage like this will show through an overlay, so it’s vital to get timely asphalt repair. Replacement can be a long, involved, expensive process, so you want to avoid it if you can.

The Importance of Regular Pavement Maintenance for Kansas City Metro Businesses

Commercial parking lots with potholes, cracks, and other damage are unattractive and dangerous. Regular and ongoing pavement maintenance is essential for preserving and protecting these surfaces for commercial property owners in the greater Kansas City metro area. Gann Asphalt & Concrete Inc. helps local businesses keep their parking lots and sidewalks in good order.

pavement maintenanceEffective pavement maintenance helps you stay ahead of surface damage, preventing minor issues from becoming major, costly repairs. The more deteriorated a paved surface, the more expensive and complex the repair process. Services like sealcoating and parking lot striping can help avoid these extensive projects, and local businesses save time and money.

Reasons KC Businesses Should Call Gann Asphalt & Concrete for Pavement Maintenance

  • Safety: Well-maintained paved areas reduce the risks of injuries, liability issues, and vehicle damage. Bright, visible traffic lines are essential for ADA compliance and safety, so get parking lot striping regularly.
  • Cost-effectiveness: Large or deep repairs can be costly, but services like crack filling and sealcoating are more affordable and less disruptive.
  • Extended lifespan: Regular services like sealcoating protect and preserve pavement, reducing the need for early replacement. This saves time and money in the long run.
  • Curb appeal: Damaged parking lots can be unattractive and deter customers. Maintaining smooth, even surfaces enhances your property’s appearance and, therefore, its value.
  • Prevention: Continuous asphalt upkeep helps control potholes, cracks, and chips. Pavement preservation solutions like sealcoating or crack filling ensure these problems are addressed before they escalate.

A robust pavement maintenance program should focus on prevention to keep surfaces in optimal condition and prevent damage. However, it’s equally important to be prepared for repairs when necessary. This dual approach ensures you can address unforeseen issues promptly, maintaining the structural integrity of your pavement. Therefore, a comprehensive asphalt maintenance strategy should incorporate preventive measures and repair capabilities.

Our recent project for a winery owner in Excelsior Springs, MO, epitomizes this blend of functionality and beauty.stamped concrete

Elevate Your MO Property with Stamped Concrete Solutions by Gann

The client sought a paved pathway that looked just like real wood but with pavement’s longevity and low maintenance needs. Our customized paving solution? A meticulously installed stamped concrete walkway that emulates wood grain and promises durability for years to come.

stamped concreteWe started by excavating the designated area to the required depth, ensuring proper drainage and a solid foundation. Next, we laid down a compacted gravel base layer, meticulously graded to provide optimal support. Once the base was in place, we strategically positioned rebar reinforcement throughout the pathway’s layout. This additional reinforcement strengthens the pavement, minimizing the risk of cracking and enhancing structural integrity, especially in high-traffic areas like wineries.

With the groundwork meticulously laid, our skilled paving craftsmen applied the artistry of stamping and staining. Using high-quality stamps  crafted to resemble natural wood grain, we meticulously imprinted the paved surface, capturing the rich texture and intricate details of real wood.

After stamping, we applied specialized stains, carefully selected to enhance the wood-like appearance while protecting the elements. This staining process adds depth and dimension and ensures long-lasting color retention, maintaining the pathway’s visual appeal for years to come.

The hotel’s parking lot, though structurally sound, had a weathered surface, faded parking lines, and noticeable cracks.
