What Causes Cracks in Asphalt Driveways?

The worst thing that you can see in your driveway is cracks. Cracks develop slowly over time. Plus, each new one damages the integrity of your driveway. Eventually, if you ignore them you will have weeds sprouting through the cracks and the entire surface will not be smooth or level. For a new, crack-free driveway, A&M Paving provides professional repair and asphalt paving in Millersville MD and the entire Baltimore area.

What Causes Cracks in Asphalt?

Unfortunately, eventually most asphalt cracks. Even the most well-maintained driveway in a temperate location is likely to develop cracks. Cracks are usually caused by one of two things: tree roots or shifts in the ground below. It is hard to prevent either of these things from occurring. However, a properly installed driveway usually experiences less cracking. Here lies the difference between choosing a handyman vs. a professional paving company to install a driveway.

How to Properly Deal with Driveway Cracks

The good news is, if you act quickly your driveway cracks will not turn into craters. Once you start to see cracks appearing you need to call in a professional to repair and seal your driveway. This will smooth out the cracks, preventing new ones from popping up where the driveway may now be compromised.
