If you live in the Pittsburgh / Southwestern PA area, never postpone asphalt paving repairs.
As with any infrastructure, asphalt lots and driveways do require regular maintenance to ensure functionality and an attractive appearance. Knowing when to repair a driveway or parking lot isn’t always super obvious, though.
Asphalt cracks over time. Little fractures are completely normal. But as they expand and become more obvious, issues can arise. Ice can infiltrate these openings and push asphalt out, causing bumps and holes.
As cracks become even larger, the required repairs become more significant. If you notice sizable fractures in asphalt, consider preemptively repairing these areas before issues become worse.
