All paving eventually wears down. Even frequent maintenance and proper care won’t stop time from weakening your asphalt. When asphalt repairs don’t quite cover it anymore, or you have many, widespread repairs that are the result of structural damage on your pavement, you should consider getting your driveway resurfaced.

Signs You Need to Resurface a Driveway
Damage appears on your asphalt all the time, but when do homeowners need to consider resurfacing driveways? Here are some indicators that the time is coming:
- Unevenness in the surface of your driveway
- Frequent asphalt repairs
- Major damage
- Old age
- Small, thin cracks across the surface (called alligator cracks)
What Does Driveway Resurfacing Fix?
Often, your asphalt will gradually develop structural damage over time. Even if you’ve been sealcoating and maintaining your asphalt regularly, it just naturally breaks down from the elements and age. These structural damages can be temporarily fixed by a regular asphalt repair service, but when they keep popping up or the damage is extensive, resurfacing might be your best option.
Resurfacing asphalt driveways provides a new structure to build upon, and is less expensive than a complete repaving job most of the time. Since the foundations are already there, asphalt resurfacing reinforces the work you’ve already had done. It will add an entirely new layer of asphalt to your existing area, providing you with about 2 inches of extra height.
