Rain and potholes

It's the middle of the Brisbane monsoon season again with hot humid days followed by late afternoon storms and torrential rain - it's a perfect mix for asphalt problems. As the asphalt heats under the beating sun and air expands, water is allowed to permeate and run off. This is great when it's just a light shower however a deluge of water is a different thing. Heavy rain can cause potholes to occur. Exacerbating this will be any tree roots that may be in the subsurface which swell and push the asphalt. Deal with your potholes early to avoid further issues. A quick inspection by Budget Asphalt may mean just a quick repair now rather than an expensive overhaul later on.
