Asphalt vs. Concrete

While some clients may assume concrete is a better choice for projects, the truth is properly designed asphalt is a superior option. By using asphalt, you'll be able to achieve the same service life as concrete. Plus, you get the benefit of having a material that is easier to seal and repair than concrete surfaces.

Cracks happen with any type of service, but repairing cracks in concrete results in a poor appearance, and there's not a lot you can do to improve the look. With asphalt, you can repair cracks so the surface looks brand new.

Have a pothole to fill? When you use concrete, you would have to break out an entire section and will still end up with an obvious and unattractive repair. With asphalt you can fill, paint and seal to achieve a beautiful, pristine result. Another major benefit is that snow melts easier on asphalt with less need for chemicals.

Extend the Life of Your Asphalt

Asphalt pavement is a practical, long-lasting investment. It should provide your property with many years of use. Yet, it doesn’t last nearly as long if it isn’t maintained and cared for properly. If left untreated, the asphalt faces exposure to the temperature swings common in the St. Louis area. Over time, weather conditions can take a heavy toll on the asphalt's surface.

Needing to repair or replace asphalt only a few years after installation represents a heavy financial burden. Luckily, premature deterioration is completely avoidable. All you need to do is take the right preventative measures and use good maintenance practices. The simple solution? Call Leritz Busy Bee!

It can also manifest as potholes that damage the cars themselves. Don’t let this happen on your property!

Why Professional Maintenance Is Important

Trying to save money by skipping out on maintenance could end up costing you dearly. Trip and fall lawsuits, which are very likely with bad asphalt, could lead to settlements valued in the tens of thousands. Some property owners wait until they’re dealing with a trip and fall incident before scrambling to fix the issues with their lot. Being proactive allows you to avoid the whole mess—there’s also some savings to be had. Insurance rates can reflect good care in regards to asphalt. This means that maintenance comes with direct financial benefits as well.

From a property value standpoint, it is always in an owner’s best interest to maintain a safe parking lot. When it comes to commercial real estate, that is where curb appeal begins. If there's a choice between a store with a well-kept parking lot and a competitor with a deteriorated one, customers gravitate to the nicer option. A beautiful asphalt lot is one worth driving to, and regular maintenance ensures it stays that way.

Our asphalt repair and maintenance services include:

  • Asphalt sealing: Sealing of your paved asphalt surfaces is the key to prolonging their lifespan. Asphalt is out in the elements 24 hours a day, which means a constant beating from sunlight, snow, rain, ice, and the man-made materials we use every day. Sealing keeps damage due to these forces at bay.
  • Asphalt repair: Throughout its lifetime, your asphalt will be subject to wear-and-tear that could require repairs. Even with proper care, the changing seasons and road traffic will eventually lead to deterioration. Leritz Busy Bee has a full crew on call, made up of professionals with years of experience. We deal with cracks in varying sizes, potholes, and replacements for entire sections of damaged asphalt. We also provide leveling for areas that have sunken in over time.
