Protect Your Asphalt!

Protect Your Asphalt!

Independence Day has always been a special day for our country. Not only do we celebrate the day as a free nation with friends and family but some people also take the time to reflect on the ‘American dream.’ The American dream may look different for everyone, but it usually means anyone can achieve their version of success through hard work in a society with few barriers. For some, being a business owner is a huge part of that success. 

Your place of business means space to call your very own and can be designed to your liking. When it comes to your asphalt paving projects, Tibbs Paving has the expertise, manpower and equipment to get the job done right the first time. After installation, maintenance is key. Here are some tips to ensure you are caring for your asphalt investment the right way:

  • Keep It Clean: Regular cleaning will help to remove the debris and dirt that will inevitably accumulate. If there is any hardened mud, make sure it is fully dry before washing it off. 
  • Stains Are Unsightly: Spilled gas, oil and brake fluid can leave stains if not attended to promptly. Be sure to use a non-toxic, biodegradable cleaner then rinse it clean using a hose. 
  • Avoid Parking Heavy-Duty Vehicles: Repeatedly driving and parking heavier vehicles like construction equipment or RVs can cause shifting. To protect your investment, we advise you to avoid this as much as possible. 
  • Sealcoating: Your parking lots should be sealed every two to five years to protect against moisture and oxidation. Cracks should also be tended to immediately to avoid future costly issues. 

Your asphalt investment can last up to 20-25 years if properly maintained. The paving experts at Tibbs Paving can guarantee a professionally done installation but it is also up to you to do your part in maintaining it. If you would like to learn more about our services, just contact us!
