Often enough errors are made while constructing an asphalt pavement which causes premature deterioration in a long run.
Applying asphalt is a project that should only be completed by a professional and licensed company to avoid any complication in the future. But even if the job was done flawlessly, unfortunately there are many other factors like excessive water, cold temperatures, oil spots, and sunshine that can harm it. Of course with proper care and maintenance majority of serious damages can be prevented, but in reality, asphalt pavements are being taken for granted therefore often enough are neglected before the damages get too obvious and in some cases can even become a potential safety hazard to pedestrians and cars.

Most property owners get intimidated by such outcome, assuming that the entire pavement area needs to be removed and replaced.
