Long-Term Benefits  

1. Durability and Strength

 

Concrete is known for its durability and strength. Made up of a mixture of water, cement and sand, its aggregation is a result of the least moisture and increased amount of cement. It has a high density that grows stronger when dry and binds over time for the most stable foundation.

2. Low Maintenance

 

  Concrete doesn’t require much maintenance, though it should be inspected regularly to ensure strength and check for damaging areas or cracks. Atlas offers services in lifting of concrete and concrete restoration.

3. Environmentally sound

 

Concrete’s porous material allows natural moisture and water to saturate into the ground. This minimizes erosion and flooding. Concrete is also known to be able to withstand fires, hurricanes and tornadoes.

4. Manages Temperature

 

The properties in cement are able to withstand fires and reduces other causes of heat. It also lowers cooling costs, managing its own temperature.

Why Should You Seal Your Pavement? 3 Potential Damages

Why seal your pavement?

Sealcoating benefits your concrete against three main causes of damage:

Sun Damage

Roads are subject to increases in temperature, due to natural and artificial heat during convocation with the surface. The surface layer of asphalt can reach a calefaction of 172 degrees Fahrenheit. This reaction with the material melts down the top layer which can result in sinking, potholes and cracks.

Sealcoating aids in the maintenance the integrity and strength of your asphalt. When you decide to sealcoat, you are adding a layer of sealant to the surface layer which acts as a protective solvent much like sunscreen does to our skin. Even more so the same, sealcoat will extend its longevity and slow down its aging process, that would result through its reduction.

Liquid/Moisture Damage

Pavement is extensively affected by natural elements of moisture (like rain and snow) leading to cracks, potholes and its base layer’s degradation. An accumulation of liquid pools seep into the pavement resulting in depression of the surface layer.

Sealcoat helps eliminate these issues and proactively prevent future ones from occurring. Potholes, sinking and alligator cracks can be avoided as a result of the application’s properties working against oxidation, chemicals and water penetration. In addition, this process will fortify the primary layer’s strength and durability against moisture.

Traffic Damage

Not usually thought an impairment, the travel of vehicles often leaves the mass beneath them affected. Larger traffic loads, oversized vehicles, including garbage and delivery trucks’, and tire tracks summate pressure on the pavement. Over time, this layer begins to oxidize and lead to cracks and decay in the road.

The wear and tear of natural and manmade elements greatly can affect the surface of the material. You can think of sealcoat as a barrier against these elements and also an abettor against friction, rust and skid. This process will greatly extend the life of your asphalt and  leave it with a clean, fresh appearance.

An average lifespan of pavement will include several seal coats. Sealcoating is applied either by squeegee or spray to the surface of the pavement slowing down the reduction process. It also protect the top layer from the above common elements of damage and even, color fading or decomposition. It is important to consider this service every 3-5 years to lengthen the lifespan of your pavement. Need help getting started?

Pavement Maintenance: To Maintain or Not To Maintain

To maintain your pavement or not to maintain and as the line finishes, “that is the question?”

At times, it may be difficult to find an assured answer to this question, especially if you are not familiar with all aspects behind concrete maintenance.

As the property manager of your commercial or residential property, though, you are concerned with the the longitude of your concrete, from intentional and unintentional damage. Some of these induced elements include but are not limited to:

  • Oxygen
  • UV Heat
  • Wind
  • Rain
  • Snow
  • Traffic

Though the average lifespan of your concrete and asphalt project can be anywhere from 20 to 30 years, the maintenance during this time is critical in preventative action against damage. These should take place intermittently every three to five years.

These are some main maintenance options you should consider during those periods of time:

Sealcoating the surface.

An average lifespan of pavement will include several seal coats. Sealcoating is applied either by squeegee or spray to the surface of the pavement slowing down the reduction process. It also protect the top layer from the above common elements of damage and even, color fading or decomposition.

Repairing cracks and fissures.

Cracks, whether great or minor, will spread and lead to further cracks or holes. While still isolated, it’s good to address these, while resources for repair are manageable. Crack fills the asphalt with moisture induced from natural elements and traffic. It affects the base layer and when it freezes, the damage expands. We offer an assessment for your concrete that can detect early sights needed of repair on cracks and alligator cracks. Our specially formulated material for fill reduces spread or further damage.

Replacing concrete.
