Anyone who’s ever lived in Texas—especially the Fort Worth area—knows that the heat and sun can be punishing. It causes surface damage to almost everything that gets exposed to it, including asphalt surfaces.
In fact, Texas’s high UV index and even higher temperatures are acute threats to the condition and longevity of paved roads, parking lots, driveways, and more. That’s why it pays to have a local paving contractor who grew up in the Fort Worth region and knows what it takes to protect asphalt from the heat and sun. Thankfully, that describes United Asphalt Paving to a T.
Putting Our Regional Expertise to Work
Established in 1995, we’re headquartered in Fort Worth, which is our primary service area. Additionally, we extend our services to the Houston metro. This is to say that we cover a lot of ground here in Texas, and it enables us to learn more and more each day about the climate’s effects on paved surfaces.
For example, did you know that Texas’s strong UV rays cause pavement to dry out and crack, much like skin? Cracks alone may not seem like a huge deal, but that’s not entirely true. Unfortunately, when even the tiniest crack line forms, it becomes easier for water and moisture to creep inside the asphalt and start causing more serious damage. Therefore, pavement in this region requires a specially formulated sealer that contains antioxidants and other UV-fighting components.
Again, this is why it’s so important to work with a locally owned and operated paving company that understands exactly what your parking lot or driveway needs. At United Asphalt Paving, we take our intimate knowledge of the local climate and convert that into action, delivering smart solutions to combat UV damage and keep your pavement in good health.
