Let 2022 be the Year of Asphalt! Keep your asphalt looking it’s best by following these resolutions, and stick around to see what Sunrise Asphalt is setting our sights on!
You Should Resolve…
To Not Let Water Pool
If you’re only going to take one of the things from this list to heart, let it be this one! We have talked at length, a bunch of times about how water is the number one enemy to a solid asphalt structure. It finds its way into microscopic cracks where it waits to freeze, expand, melt, and wreak havoc. Letting water sit and pool after a storm is just accepting potholes in the months to come. Instead, clear it away quickly when you see it, be proactive!
Not Let Debris Gather
Similar to letting water pool, letting debris accumulate is just asking for problems down the line. Debris that gathers will allow moisture to get trapped, again creating the potential for potholes. Debris also left to gather can be run over with a vehicle, pushed aside or dug into the asphalt itself (especially if it’s a particularly hot day, and we’ll have those soon enough!) damaging the surface and the integrity of the asphalt. If you have leaves and branches, clear them away, keeping a clean and clear driveway goes a long way to keeping your asphalt strong.
To Fix Holes Quickly
The best offense is a good defense, and that means making repairs to damage when it first crops up, even if they seem ‘too small’ to worry about. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure (there sure are a lot of sayings about being proactive!) so patch a crack or dent before it becomes a full-blown undercarriage destroying crater of a pothole. It might feel like more work, but really it’s just a little bit of work potentially more often. Don’t believe us? Let one pothole go and see how repairing the asphalt and the car suits you. Yeah, we don’t want that either!
To Seal (or Reseal) Your Asphalt
Getting your asphalt sealed can do you a whole lot of good, whether it’s sealing your personal driveway or a parking lot! Sealing your asphalt helps fight oxidation and keeps water from working it’s way into the asphalt structure which of course, leads to potholes! So seal (or reseal) your asphalt to keep your surfaces sturdy and stable for years to come.
There are other steps you could take but for now we’ll stop there. If you do these things you’ll extend the life of your asphalt surfaces for years!
But you’re not the only one making resolutions! Here at Sunrise Asphalt, we’re making them too.

To Be Tucson’s Asphalt Partner
Sunrise Asphalt has been operating in Tucson for over 40 years, and with our 55+ years of combined experiences it’s safe to say we know these roads like the back of our hands. And we always want it to be that way! We’re locally owned and operated, and our family has been a part of the Tucson community for decades with no plans to change that. In 2022 we’re going to continue to be Tucson’s asphalt partner, whether it’s for driveways or parking lots, we’re happy to build these streets.
All of that to say we resolve to provide the best service around! No matter your asphalt needs, give us a call and we’ll see what we can do to help make your dreams a reality!
