Rain and how it affects asphalt and bitumen

RAIN! We need it here in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast and all over QLD. However, we live in the land of droughts and flooding plains and I must say that I believe in climate change and it is having an effect on asphalt and bitumen also. The longevity of your asphalt and bitumen car-parks, walk-ways and all asphalt and bitumen areas is directly determined by sun, wind and rain as well as the wear and tear of vehicle and foot traffic.

  • Rain - seeps under asphalt if it doesn't have runoff ...
  • Rain - seeps into cracks and disperses the underlying sand, soil and screenings and corrodes rea also ...
  • Rain - seeps into potholes ...
  • Rain - washes out road base if it is not sealed ...
  • Rain - feeds weeds that grow into asphalt ...
  • Rain - feeds trees roots that lift and split asphalt and bitumen surfaces ...

All of the above result in costly asphalt and bitumen repairs if left unchecked. Avoid the risk of unnecessary major asphalt and bitumen repairs by contacting Budget Asphalt now.
