HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR NEW PAVEMENT

Here are some tips to keep your asphalt in good condition:

  • New asphalt is soft and pliable…keep vehicles off new asphalt for 24-48 hours.

  • Driving on/or over edges of new asphalt will cause cracks and crumbling.

  • Prevent divots in new asphalt by placing plywood under trailer wheels and tongue.

  • Avoid turning on your asphalt unless the vehicle is in motion.  This will cause divots.

  • Prolong appearance and life of asphalt by cleaning up oil and chemical spills as soon as possible.

  • When it comes to fuel spills, diesel or regular unleaded gasoline will destroy or severely damage the asphalt…clean up immediately.

  • Avoid driving heavy equipment such as large trucks on your new asphalt if possible.
