Regardless of the age or condition of your asphalt, BorderLines recommends regular maintenance on your pavement in order to protect and maintain the surface quality throughout the life of your driveway, and to avoid future repair costs.
The primary reason for asphalt failure is the penetration of water into the base beneath the pavement. Sun, wind and water cause the asphalt to harden, or oxidize. When the pavement becomes dry and brittle it begins to crack and break down. Sealcoat acts as a waterproof layer on your driveway, similar to what wax does for your vehicle. It not only slows the oxidation process but helps the water to run off the pavement, preventing it from entering the base material. In fact, regular sealcoating and crack filling could double the life of your pavement.
BorderLines provides preventive maintenance for residential driveways to reduce future repair costs while enhancing your home’s curb appeal. Customized to the condition of your driveway, our residential maintenance services include sealcoating, crack sealing, asphalt repairs and asphalt paving.

Filling the cracks and joints will temporarily get rid of the any ant holes in the asphalt crevices. However, the ants can eat through the rubber and re-make their holes. For a more permanent solution, it is best to contact an exterminating service to help rid the driveway of ants prior to our arrival.See More
