While asphalt paving may be done in misty conditions or light rain, it is not advisable to install a new surface or repair existing paving during a heavy downpour. The main challenges with paving in the rain involve formation of cracks and potholes that require major repairs and early replacement expenses.
The experts at American Asphalt explain why it is not advisable to undertake paving installation and repair when it is raining or when the ground is wet.
Asphalt paving projects in the Bay Area communities of Hayward, San Jose and Santa Clara are best completed in the dry, summer season. Crews have ample time to lay out paving materials and the surface gets plenty of drying time. We also recommend using slurry seal, a rubberized emulsion that contains aggregates (crushed rocks) and is therefore more resilient and durable than the traditional fog seal. When combined with asphalt sealcoats, it provides a watertight seal that will protect your paved areas from weather, erosion and oxidation. These sealcoats also improve the surface texture and provide a smooth, non-abrasive surface.
