How Paving Contractors in Vancouver Help Battle the Winter Weather

  March 16, 2017


As anyone will know who has owned or had to maintain an asphalt driveway in the past, the winter periods can be a particularly troubling and damaging time.

While there are a number of people who will attempt to perform repairs and maintenance work themselves, using professional paving contractors in Vancouver is the most effective way of preventing damage, helping to prolong the life of your driveway or paved area.

How Paving Contractors in Vancouver Help Battle the Winter Weather

Analyzing your driveway

One of the first steps that paving contractors in Vancouver can take is to analyze the current state of your asphalt driveway, allowing them to provide advice and guidance on the maintenance required.

If the driveway is in relatively good shape, or there are only very small cracks starting to appear, a light repair job is likely to be advised. For problems or damages that are more severe, however, it may be best to have an entire new asphalt driveway installed.

This may depend on a number of variables, however, such as the age of your asphalt driveway, which may shape the decision about whether you repair or replace.

Repair jobs

Paving contractors in Vancouver are well versed in dealing with the cracks and holes that form after a long and wet winter. Additionally, if it has been especially cold over this time, freezing conditions can quickly cause large scale damage, turning small holes and cracks into much larger ones.

Whether you require resurfacing, a paving extension, asphalt seal coating, or general maintenance, paving contractors in Vancouver are able to provide these services in the most effective manner.

New asphalt driveways

For the more damaged asphalt driveways, professional paving contractors in Vancouver are able to install an entirely new one.

Depending on the severity of the existing damage, this can often work out to be the best option. Not only can this be cheaper than conducting extensive repairs, it also means it will be less expensive to maintain in the long run. Additionally, it will also give a much longer overall lifespan to the driveway, ensuring that it can last through many more Vancouver winters.

Summing up

Whether you need to engage in a repair, or a complete replacement, choosing professional paving contractors in Vancouver is the most highly advised option.
