It’s hard to believe that we are already inching closer to the end of winter. Spring is right around the corner. While Vancouver winters tend to be pretty wet and rainy, springs are even worse. The added precipitation affects a lot of things around the city. Here at Burnaby Blacktop, we are especially concerned about the effects of rainy weather on asphalt and pavement. Preventative asphalt maintenance is key to preserving the longevity and functionality of your driveways and walkways. If you are already noticing standing water, cracks, or potholes now is the time to start exploring Vancouver asphalt drainage, concrete drainage, pothole repair, seal coating, and other drainage solutions.

Cracks and Potholes

Cracks and potholes in your asphalt are an easy problem to notice and a relatively simple one to fix. Obviously the smaller the crack or pothole the easier the pothole repair. With added spring rain, these weaknesses and imperfections can lead to major long-term issues. Standing water will take advantage of openings in asphalt and pavement to wreak havoc from the inside out. The sooner we catch the problems the better!


Sealcoating is another easy, and worthwhile, preventative measure as we start moving toward the increase in wet weather that accompanies the spring months in Vancouver. Again, moisture that gets into your asphalt causes the biggest problems. Sealcoating adds a thin layer over the top of your already paved surface. This will prevent damage from the sun, rain, and excessive vehicle usage. In the longterm, sealcoating helps strengthen asphalt and prevent cracks. If done every few years, this will increase the lifespan of your asphalt surface.

Drainage Installation and Drainage Solutions

The cracks in your asphalt will allow water to seep below the surface and cause damage. There really shouldn’t be any standing water on your asphalt in the first place. If you notice standing water it is time to explore drainage installation or improving your drainage solutions. While asphalt drainage and concrete drainage should have been handled upon original installation, the experts at Burnaby Blacktop are here to fix it. Standing water can be a major problem for your asphalt or pavement, and through creative drainage solutions and drainage installation, we can reroute your standing water before the spring rains hit.

The challenges of winter are almost behind us, but spring weather is right around the corner.
