One Thing That Can Ruin Your Pavement This Summer

Summer 2015 Pavement Survival Guide

Though winter has passed, there are many parking lots still suffering from cracked pavement and deteriorated surfaces. You might think all the damage has been done as summer approaches, but think again. You see, ultraviolet light from the sun can damage the surface of your asphalt, deteriorating the pavement, cracking painted lines, etc. So, to help our Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill neighbors ride smoothly through the North Carolina summer, Raleigh Paving offers our summer 2015 pavement survival guide.

How to help your lot combat UV rays

Luckily, there are ways to protect your lot from sun damage this summer, and Raleigh Paving has the necessary expertise and experience to help you do so. Our sealcoating and line striping work in Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill has salvaged countless lots across the Triangle, and we’re eager to make the same a reality for your asphalt this summer. Here’s what we can do for you:

  • Sealcoating: Sealcoating reinforces the binder in your pavement to protect your asphalt from sun damage and disintegration. It’s important to note that sealcoating does not have any adhesive components, so it won’t repair cracked and crumbling pavement. However, if applied every 2-3 years by the professionals at Raleigh Paving, sealcoating will shield your lot from ultraviolet damage, corrosion, and will boost the aesthetics tenfold.

  • Line Striping: Another victim of UV rays on your asphalt is paint. Striped lines will succumb to sun erosion and begin to fade or crack. To prevent that annoying and dangerous damage, you need line striping services from Raleigh Paving. We can brighten existing parking lines, apply reflective properties and develop new traffic flow patterns for your parking area. We’ll begin applying our first coat immediately after sealing your pavement, decreasing downtime and quickly getting your lot back up-and-running.
