Whether your asphalt needs repairing, resurfacing or maintaining, we’ll get the job done right the first time.

In Australia, when we talk about bitumen and asphalt, we tend to use the words interchangeably. Typically, we think of our road surfaces as being ‘bitumen’. But in fact, bitumen is used to make asphalt – the substance commonly used in the construction of road surfaces.

Bitumen is a black viscous mixture of hydrocarbons, obtained naturally or as the residue from the refinement of crude oil. Once melted down into a sticky substance, it can be combined and mixed with crushed rock to make asphalt.

While we’re talking about the terms of our trade, once the asphalt is laid, it’s referred to as a ‘pavement.’

Why asphalt maintenance?

Over time, asphalt deteriorates due to a number of factors, such as:

  • Age
  • Traffic
  • Weather
  • Tree roots
  • Oil spills
  • Heavy objects

Asphalt maintenance can also be required following the installation of plumbing pipes or electrical conduits.

Maintenance of driveways and car parks.

It’s important to act quickly to repair your driveway or car park, otherwise the problem can get bigger and more expensive to fix. It also gives a poor impression of your home or business, and can be hazardous.

Potholes are a consequence of failing to repair cracks in the asphalt surface – they occur when water gets through the cracks and expands in the sub-base below the surface, pushing the asphalt pavement upwards. With traffic, the pavement will then break down and collapse into the void, becoming a pothole.
