Asphalt maintenance is not an easy patch job. Repairing potholes and damaged areas is critical for protecting your asphalt investment. If not properly maintained, even the smaller cracks become larger holes that undermine the whole pavement. For one, you need to be educated about additives and sealants for asphalt. Adding Sand When doing asphalt repair, you can ask your contractor to add sand. Sand has many benefits for asphalt repair such as increased solid content, skid resistance, durability, decreased sun glare, and minimized minor deformities.
The patio that was behind my house when we bought our house four years ago was in terrible condition. The previous owner seemed to have installed patio stones himself and didn't do a very good job doing so. The stones were all cracked and uneven and made it difficult to enjoy the little time that I did spend out there. I decided that the old patio had to go and that I would have a new patio professionally installed. If you are considering a new paved patio, visit my site. There, you will find several great ideas that can help you create the patio that you love spending time on.
