Best Time for Asphalt Resurfacing

Asphalt resurfacing could include any and all aspects of asphalt maintenance, including fixing cracks and potholes, cleaning and sealing, and re-striping it. While there is no better time than the present to fix some major asphalt issues for the safety and appeal of your pavement, there definitely are more preferable times to schedule your project. The best time for asphalt resurfacing is now!

Best Time for Asphalt Resurfacing

It’s true that in the event of a pavement emergency, it is best to deal with it then, no matter what season it is. However, the best time for asphalt resurfacing is between spring and fall. All stages of asphalt maintenance, including road striping, sealcoating, and crack filling, tend to have the best results in warm temperatures with low humidity. Thermoplastic road paint, crack sealant, and sealcoating material all are applied at high temperatures, so the weather must be above 40 degrees Fahrenheit to avoid chilling too quickly.

Avoid Winter Damages

In the winter, a freshly renewed parking lot or road can easily become scratched up by snowplows. Likewise, snowplows can get damaged by hidden pavement cracks and potholes! These concerns make it more pressing for pavement managers to take care of their asphalt before winter comes. Maryland might not get much snow, but one can never predict for certain what the season will hold. 

Take Advantage of Longer Work Days

Summer allows the best conditions for asphalt resurfacing. It also opens up longer days for outdoor projects. Some projects might require more extensive measures or multiple steps, such as multiple layers of thermoplastic paint. 

Schedule Ahead of Time

The wise choice is to schedule your asphalt maintenance for any time between spring and fall while the weather is warm and the forecast predicts clear skies in the following day or so. One strategy is to schedule when it is still winter. In winter, you could get more flexible and optimal project dates and rates. On the other hand, you could also schedule any time you need to!
