The announcement comes as a recent study published by QuoteWizard reveals that Nashville ranks as one of the worst in the US when it comes to road pothole problems. Using durable materials, Gaddes Strategic can create a new top layer of asphalt, which is more resistant to cracking and potholes.
The basic process of asphalt resurfacing involves the removal and replacement of the existing asphalt with fresh material. How that material is applied, says Gaddes Strategic, is where the two methods and consequently the results differ.
The company offers hot asphalt resurfacing and emphasizes that hot asphalt repair has long been the industry standard, as it produces higher quality results. Hot asphalt resurfacing involves heating the asphalt mixture to high temperatures before it is applied to the pavement surface as it can endure heavy loads and resist deterioration, even when under constant use and harsh weather condition, it is the recommended method for heavily trafficked areas.
However, it is more expensive and is typically performed during warm weather conditions when the asphalt can be properly heated and applied.
For customers who need a quicker and more affordable solution, cold asphalt resurfacing, which uses an asphalt mixture at ambient temperatures, can be applied in all weather conditions. Cold resurfacing, however, may not match the durability of hot asphalt, especially in extreme weather, and is more susceptible to wear and tear in high-traffic areas.
“The seasonal nature of asphalt resurfacing is very important to understand,” said a company spokesperson. “Cold mixing is a fair short-term solution in harsh weather or when dealing with low traffic intensity but beyond that, hot asphalt resurfacing is the way to go and businesses should invest in long-term solutions.”
