Droughts then flooding rains

rain and asphalt

With all the rain it's worth checking between your asphalt and concrete edges. Continual and heavy rain will wash out asphalt if it is aged and broken. This may seem small now but it may lead to a much bigger repair job later as the rain washes away the base and allows water to seep under the asphalt layer. Tend to it early to avoid costly repairs. Call Budget Asphalt Repairs now.

Common sense says that anything hot that comes into contact with bare skin is likely to cause some pain, so our advice is always to keep footwear on when walking on summer-beaten asphalt. Wear some thongs, enjoy the sunshine and keep your feet covered!
