October 2017 – Fairfield, Ohio – Mt. Pleasant Blacktopping is pleased to announce its latest blacktop paving in Fairfield services. The company, which provides both commercial and residential paving services now provides both blacktopping and asphalt paving for customers throughout Fairfield, Butler County and South Western Ohio. Mt. Pleasant Blacktopping wants to make sure customers understand the importance of blacktopping and asphalt over leaving a road or driveway exposed to the elements.
The Importance of Blacktopping
Mt. Pleasant Blacktopping recommends the utilization of blacktop paving in Fairfield to improve safety for both drivers and pedestrians. Unpaved roads and driveways can develop major holes and ruts, which can cause damage to a vehicle. It also increases the chance of a driving mishandling their vehicle, leading to potential accidents. Additionally, unpaved roads may flood, turn to mud, and become problematic when attempting to navigate in undesirable weather.
A common material used instead of paving is gravel. While initially less expensive, gravel does not stay in place and, eventually, will need to be completely replaced. Pavement does need an occasional new coat, but this is less frequent than the need for additional gravel.
Mt. Pleasant Blacktopping stresses the importance of paving a roadway to boost visibility. If left unpaved, a dusty road may cause visibility problems for both pedestrians and drivers. For roads that see several dozen cars a day or more, it is beneficial to take advantage of pavement as it reduces roadside hassles and potential visibility issues.
Property owners usually wait too long, 20-25 years, before making asphalt repairs to save money. The cost of maintaining your asphalt pavement can be doubled over this time. Mt. Pleasant Blacktopping recommends resurfacing your pavement every 12-15 years for the best surface and to save expenses. Added thickness during resurfacing improves the performance by adding strength and longevity to your pavement. Areas needing patching from neglect cost 5X more than resurfacing. Have Mt. Pleasant Blacktopping inspect your property for the best care and maintenance for worry free performance.
