The most important aspect of any asphalt project, from driveways to parking lots, is to be sure the basis of the installation is properly done by qualified technicians, such as Sunrise Asphalt. Like concrete projects, asphalt must have a well compacted base of gravel and sand to withstand time and earth movement. For those who buy a property that already has an asphalt surface that is in disrepair, the cracks and other damage that may exist can be fixed with rubberized crack filler. Remove any plant material so its roots are too far away to encroach under the asphalt surface and find their way topside.
