Visiting Clayton is a treat. Living amongst the hardwoods, many professionals and professors live peacefully in this upscale neighborhood. It’s easy to see why; close to Delmar Loop, Metrolink, Forest Park, Washington University…the list goes on and on. If your family loves to be in the middle of the action, but enjoy the quiet solitude of a street ball game on the asphalt paving Clayton is for you. One nice feature of Clayton is the many miles of perfectly maintained roadways. The City of Clayton Street Department does a fine job of filling potholes, sealing cracks and resurfacing their roadways when needed.
The homeowners and businesses in Clayton must also watch their asphalt surfaces. What was beautifully installed “only a few years ago” was actually installed 15 years ago. Life moves faster than we realize!
I have asphalt paving problems….help!
Once dips, cracks and potholes appear in your asphalt pavement, there isn’t time to waste! Each week brings more moisture to our area and moisture is the enemy. Summer and winter are especially hard on any surface. The constant hot-cold temperature fluctuations cause cracks to get wider and parking lots to fade.
If your driveway or parking lot is made with concrete, and a “dead spot” develops in the bed, the concrete will eventually crack and hold moisture. However if this happens on an newer asphalt surface, the surface becomes a dip. This is because asphalt paving is much more forgiving. The asphalt will give rather than break. However, after the moisture freezes, even the asphalt can become weak enough to fail.
Repairing Asphalt Paving Clayton
Instead of having to tear out a large section of concrete, repack and re-pour and entire slab the solution for asphalt is to just cut out the dips, repack the base and repave with hot asphalt. With concrete the job is 30 days to cure and a lot more work. With asphalt the job can be done in a day and the asphalt paving ready for use in 24 hours.
