Pickens Construction Offers Asphalt Care Winter Tips in Anderson, SC
Pickens Construction in Anderson, SC wants to help South Carolina and Georgia residents care for their asphalt services this winter season. Asphalt surfaces can wear during the extreme winter conditions, however, home and business owners can take precautions to keep their paved surfaces safe and durable throughout the entire year.

ANDERSON, South Carolina – Pickens Construction is wishing South Carolina and Georgia residents a safe winter season through some useful tips for preparing and maintaining asphalt surfaces.  Asphalt is a highly durable, multi-functional surface that can last home and business owners for years if properly cared for throughout the calendar months. Pickens Construction offers the following tips for proper asphalt pavement care:

  • Avoid the overuse of heavy vehicles and machinery, to include snow plows, on paved surfaces to prevent pothole and crack damage.  Adequately treated surface areas such as highways can bear the heavy weight of such machinery; however, the use of these vehicles and equipment on parking lots, driveways and sidewalks should be limited.

  • Limit asphalt repair to warmer spring and summer months when possible.  Cracks and holes on asphalt surfaces often expand during the colder months.  In addition, sealants and fillers normally do not dry well in the cold. Saving Anderson pavement repair jobs for warmer days, at least above 40 degrees Fahrenheit, will improve the chances of crack and pothole repairs lasting years to come.

  • Finally, home and business owners should choose salts and other traction chemicals wisely as some may serve their primary purpose well but damage asphalt as well as vehicles and other surroundings.  Pickens Construction encourages those with paved areas to consult professional construction companies and salt vendors prior to making any purchase.
