Asphalt Life Cycle

Understanding The Pavement Life Cycle

Asphalt, prized for its durability and affordability, is a common choice for all asphalt assets. Yet, like any material, it undergoes wear and tear, necessitating eventual replacement. Understanding the crucial stages of the asphalt life cycle is essential to help you keep your asphalt looking great for years to come. The asphalt life cycle refers to the stages and timeline of an asphalt pavement's existence, from its initial construction to eventual replacement or rehabilitation.

Maintenance Phase

The asphalt life cycle consists of several phases, with maintenance being one of the most crucial yet often overlooked aspects. Regular maintenance practices are pivotal in extending the longevity of asphalt assets. Once your new asphalt is installed, it requires consistent inspections and preventive measures to preserve its condition. Ongoing maintenance is necessary to address wear and tear, ensuring the asphalt remains resilient and protected from the damaging effects of weather and traffic. Asphalt rejuvenation is the most proactive, valuable, and cost-effective tool in your maintenance toolbox.

Planning for the future

This chart contrasts the traditional model with the pavement preservation model. The first descending curve on the left represents the traditional model, in which unchecked pavement deterioration eventually triggers the need for major road rehabilitation. The wave-like pattern of curves at the top of the figure represents the concept of preservation, in which pavement receives preventative maintenance regularly while still in good condition.
