How To Prevent Asphalt From Cracking

Asphalt is pretty durable, but is still susceptible to cracking. Cracking can not only make your driveway look bad, but damage it. Here are some things you can do to prevent your asphalt from cracking:

  • Sealcoat your asphalt: You should sealcoat your asphalt every 2-3 years to reduce cracking and extend the lifetime of your asphalt. Sealcoating provides your driveway with an extra layer of protection against spills, chemicals, UV rays, and debris.
  • Distribute weight evenly: You can distribute weight evenly on your asphalt driveway by parking in different spots on your driveway. This is important to do because asphalt can crack under constant weight or pressure.
  • Clean your driveway regularly: Cleaning your driveway regularly of debris will help to prevent cracking in the future.
