FAQs on Asphalt Speed Bump Repairs and Products
Our team of experts wants to ensure that you are fully prepared with the proper asphalt speed bump repair products and applications before starting your next project. With that in mind, we have compiled some answers to our most commonly asked questions about asphalt speed bump repairs.
How long does it take to complete an asphalt speed bump repair?
The duration of your asphalt speed bump repair can ultimately depend on the extent of the damage itself. For example, small cracks in your speed bump can take a couple of hours to complete and cure. On the other hand, larger projects, like pothole repair and resurfacing, can take longer than that.
Though the duration of the repair depends on the project at hand, we always advise ensuring each repair goes through the proper curing time to ensure that your asphalt speed bump repair is long-lasting.
How often should I be inspecting my asphalt speed bump?
Like with assessing asphalt pavement, our team highly recommends regularly examining your asphalt speed bumps to ensure there are no existing cracks or damage in the pavement. This will help prevent any larger issues from arising that may require a more heavy-duty asphalt speed bump repair.
Are asphalt speed bumps more durable than rubber or plastic speed bumps?
Absolutely. While plastic and rubber speed bumps need to be replaced every 1-3 years depending on their use, asphalt is extremely durable and can last as long as 30 years with routine maintenance and ongoing asphalt speed bump repairs.
What other UNIQUE products can be used for asphalt speed bump repairs?
Beyond the asphalt speed bump repair products previously listed, UNIQUE Paving Materials supplies an extensive array of asphalt repair and preservation products for diverse tasks. These products include the following:
