Common Asphalt Problems

Alligator cracking: This is surface damage to asphalt that damages the asphalt in such a way that the cracks form a pattern that look like alligator scales. Alligator cracking is typically caused by the effects of the sun, moisture, and movements on the surface over time.
Potholes: Potholes are holes that form in the roadway as a result of a presence of water under the surface of the road. Potholes can vary greatly in size and shape depending on the conditions of the particular road surface.
Cracking Pavement: Cracking pavement is a result of general wear and tear of the road surface over time. In addition, the presence of moisture and sun over time can cause your pavement to crack.

4 things can damage your asphalt driveway

  1. Hot weather. In extreme heat, your driveway can expand or warp.
  2. Tree roots. If your driveway was installed too close to roots, they can eventually crack the surface of your pavement.
  3. Heavy vehicles. Driving on your driveway every day with a heavy vehicle can eventually wear out the pavement.
  4. Oil. Oil stains from your car can degrade your asphalt.


Fortunately, most of these issues can be prevented or reversed. Call Twin City Striping & Maintenance at 318-397-1905 to learn how you can extend the life of your asphalt driveway.
