Will asphalt overlay old concrete?

old concrete

Repairing old broken concrete can be very expensive if you want to return it to “as new” and replace the concrete with just more concrete. If it’s too far gone then it will have to be completely dug out and new concrete laid – you have to start over. However, a simpler and easier fix is to overlay the existing concrete with asphalt. Providing the asphalt has something to stick to, the result is often better than the original.



Asphalt inspection may save you a bundle

Anyone who manages public areas has a responsibility to keep both vehicles and pedestrians safe. Failing to address even seemingly minor problems may turn quick inexpensive issues into big headaches that will cost you thousands. Worse still, if a vehicle is damaged or a pedestrian injured to due poor maintenance, the possible law suit may be more than you bargained for. Like any surface subject to regular use, problems may arise. This is true even with asphalt, particularly if there are trees nearby or if prolonged heavy rain causes minor cracks to widen.

Before your insurance company denies your claim due to poor maintenance, take action to ensure that asphalt hazards never arise in the first place. Talk to Budget Asphalt about our asphalt inspection service. We can identify areas that need addressing, potential problems or ways you can avoid issues before they occur.
