Pavement Maintenance: The who, what, and when

If you have pavement, you need maintenance. You. If you’re a school district, or municipality, facility manager, or property manager, you have annual capital budgets, and you must include the cost of pavement maintenance in your budget.

A pavement maintenance plan can aid you in forecasting your capital needs for the next 5 – 10 years. It can be used to help forecast the profitability of your properties, too.

To plan and forecast budgets and capital expenditures, you need accurate estimates so you can set aside adequate reserves to properly maintain your properties. We’ve seen it happen far too many times that a commercial property manager or owner has underfunded the asphalt maintenance line item in the budget. When that happens, it means maintenance is either foregone, or the right maintenance option isn’t applied at the right time. This can lead to degradation, requiring more costly intervention later. It might also put you in the hot seat for not planning ahead.

At Ace Asphalt, we do the following:

  • Conduct an initial onsite assessment/inspection of pavements on your property to develop an immediate action plan
  • Create an estimate that covers the next one to two years of recommended maintenance
  • Provide a project assessment for maintenance every 2 – 3 years beyond that point up to approximately 12 years
  • Outline our pavement maintenance solutions

From the moment your pavement is placed, the environment and its elements go to work, degrading it. With proper pavement maintenance, the life of your asphalt can be extended, thus resetting the clock. We have what you need to maximize the life and functionality of your pavement, and with smart planning, we can help make it more gentle on both your budget and property profitability. With Ace Asphalt, we’ll help you compare cost versus benefit to maximize your pavement’s life. We’re objective, and ethical, and one of the Top Contractors in the Striping, Pavement Repair, Surface Treatment, and Paving categories by Pavement Maintenance and Reconstruction™.
