As expert paving contractors in Greenville, NC, we recommend you make sure that your asphalt paving is ready for winter. Winters here in North Carolina for the past few years have been fairly mild, thankfully. But even if snow and ice may not be as bad some winters, cooler temperatures can also have adverse impact on asphalt. Here are a few ways to prepare your pavement for the winter ahead.

1. Fix Cracks and Potholes

With winter just around the corner, and the ice and snow that comes with it, now is a great time to check for cracks and holes. If there are holes already, the upcoming moisture could ruin your asphalt even more. That’s why you should check for holes and get a paving contractor to fill them up before freezes start to occur.

2. Make a Snow Plan

Whether we get a couple inches of snow or just a little ice, you should prepare your asphalt paving for the possibility of snow plows. As winter comes rolling around, you’ll need to hire an experienced snow removal company to help take care of your needs. Without that experience, you could actually accidentally damage your asphalt. If you set up a snow plan, you won’t risk that damage.

3. Check Your Drainage Systems

Is your drainage working correctly? This is important, especially in North Carolina, because we often get more rain than snow when cold weather happens. If there is standing water, it could severely damage your asphalt. Make sure the drains and manholes are cleaned out and ready to move water from your pavement.
