Why Petromat Installation is Important in Tampa, Florida

Petromat Installation is the Solution to Your Pavement Woes

Plenty of Tampa Bay property owners are unaware of the fact that their pavement gradually deteriorates due to moisture exposure. This weakening induced by water has the potential to cause significant damage to your Tampa Bay property. It can wreak havoc on the surface your clients see as well as space below. In many instances, the presence of excessive moisture below the surface of your pavement will spur the formation of cracks. Do not panic if you see cracks along the surface of your pavement. Reach out to our team of asphalt paving experts to rectify the problem with a petromat overlay.

Crack Causes

An inferior base atop a subgrade that is especially sensitive to moisture can spur shrinkage and swelling within the subgrade. This reflects to the base material and moves up to the asphalt, spurring the formation of visible cracks along the surface. The movement of moisture through these cracks as well as dried out portions of the asphalt hastens the damage. There is also the possibility that the current aggregate base and pavement portion lack the girth necessary to endure heavy traffic.

How a Petromat Overlay Helps

Let our team apply a petromat overlay to your compromised pavement to slow the rate at which surface water seeps down below. This reduction in moisture will preserve the integrity of your pavement across posterity. Petromat is a formidable barrier between each portion of the pavement. This is the protection your Tampa property needs to stay in tip-top shape in the months and years to come.

Petromat systems are made with a unique asphalt coating of cement combined with a polypropylene fabric. This unique design forms pavement in between each segment of the pavement. It is the barrier your Tampa property needs to avoid excessive water exposure. The resulting reduction in water exposure and ensuing stress will stop the formation of those ugly cracks.
