● Don’t park in the same spot every day. Your vehicle is heavy, and overtime you will notice a dent, or impression, especially if you park in the same spot daily. This also includes any RV’s and trailers on the pavement. Periodically moving heavy things will help keep your pavement level, avoid cracking, and water pooling.
● Avoid driving on the edges of the asphalt. The edge is the weakest part of the asphalt. It can easily crack or break off if too much weight is placed on the edges too often.
● Don’t let weeds get out of control. The roots of weeds are very strong and will cause a lot of damage to asphalt. Weeds can cause cracks, bumps, and more, leaving your driveway uneven and unsightly! The best option is to spray any weeds close to the asphalt with weed killer before they get out of hand.
● Don’t ignore the small stuff. Small cracks should be filled or patched as soon as possible. If left alone, much larger problems can ensue.
