It’s Summertime in North Carolina, and when it rains, it comes down hard and fast. With all of the rain we’ve experienced this year, you might be considering buying some scuba gear to help you get around. Rain can prevent you from getting around or participating in outdoor activities. Rain can also affect your pavement in several ways.
hen it comes to paving your driveway or parking lot, rain can impact your paving schedule. Paving cannot be done while it’s rain or even if it’s recently rained and the ground is still wet. This can be inconvenient as it delays progress, but it’s for the best in the long run. Asphalt contains oils that don’t mix well with water, and if pavement is laid in the rain, this can cause the pavement to crack and not lay smoothly. So, waiting a little while for the rain to clear up will prove the best option for you.
Once your pavement has actually been installed, heavy rain and sleet can still impact your pavement. That’s why it’s important to have your pavement sealcoated for an extra layer of protection against the elements. Maintaining your pavement is also equally important to preventing weather damage; that means that if you notice cracks or holes, contact your paving contractor as soon as possible to have these issues fixed. Waiting to fix these issues can lead to further damage, especially is bad weather hits.
