Small Works Pavement Repair
For a facility manager tasked with health and safety compliance, cracked pavements need to be fixed as quickly and efficiently as possible to ensure public safety and to mitigate liability. Even a minor crack in the pavement can be the cause of a health and safety hazard which may have severe financial implications for both organisations and individuals – as clarified by recent statements from The Health and Safety Executive, which indicate personal liability for professional Health and Safety failings.
If you notice a crack in your asphalt, don’t wait for it to create bigger problems. Take the time to find the right team before making any hasty decisions and find a company that will back up their work with an industry leading warranty. Contact OUTCO to learn more about how our experienced team can prevent that unsightly crack from becoming a much bigger problem in the near future.
Why do pavements deteriorate?
Pavements deteriorate for a variety of reasons, from surface cracking to weather damage and underground issues. In cases of asphalt pavements, lack of foundation, winter and heavy usage bring about different cracks and damages. With concrete paths, fine cracks on the surface indicate that the concrete dried off too quickly when it was poured. The constant exposure to environmental stress such as dirt, air, and water can work on the cracks and make them wider, and improper drainage can cause water to seep into cracks that freeze in early winter, causing a widening of the cracks. If your walkway already seems to be collapsing, its cause may also be underground. For example, the roots of a nearby tree might be pushing your footpath, and for that, slab replacement won’t work.

Common types of pavement damage
Pavement repair might seem like something you can leave for another day, but if you notice a crack, you’d be well advised to take action immediately. Cracks in your pavement can lead to much more severe issues later. While you won’t have a problem finding a pavement repair team in the UK, it’s worth noting that there is a gulf in the quality, standard and professionalism in the industry. Repairing or replacing pavements is not as simple as filling it with sand and hoping for the best. Learning a little about what to look for in a pavement repair specialist will help ensure that your project gets done the right way the first time.
Cracks alone aren’t often a source of great frustration. The real problems arise when water seeps through the crack. Once water flows through a crack in the asphalt, the two biggest and most frequent problems are depressions and heaving. Ensure that your car park catch basin is in good repair in order to achieve adequate drainage of your parking area. This way, water flows where it needs to go rather than sitting on your pavement, eroding it.
Depressions are commonly caused by water getting under the pavement through a crack. Once the asphalt has been penetrated, there is often nothing stopping the water from eroding the foundation soil. Should the foundation soil migrate, the pavement no longer has anything firm to rest on, which can cause it to sink in. Depressions can very quickly become potholes, and potholes can be hazardous to employees, customers, and vehicles.
Water that gets under the pavement may not cause the soil to erode. It can instead saturate the earth. Should the soil be saturated during a freeze-thaw cycle, the expanding ice can heave the surface asphalt up, creating dangerous obstacles over the surface.
