Winter Warriors: Protecting Your Asphalt from Cold Weather Damage

February 13, 20243 min read

If you live in the GTA and own a home or business with an asphalt parking surface, you understand the importance of year-round pavement maintenance in Toronto.

As the harsh weather rolls in, the drop in temperature can be tough on asphalt surfaces like driveways and parking areas. Knowing how to prepare can keep your pavement in great shape.

Here are some essential steps to shield your asphalt from the cold weather's harsh effects. From preventative measures to ongoing care, we've got you covered.

Prepare Before the Cold Hits

Getting your pavement ready before winter is essential. Look over your parking lot for any cracks or damage. Fixing these issues early can stop water from getting in. Pooling water can cause more significant damage during the freeze-thaw cycle.

Use a high-quality sealant for extra protection against moisture and the cold. Sealcoating protects against moisture, UV rays, and harmful substances, making your asphalt more durable.

If it's been a while since the last inspection, it's worth having a professional take a look. They can spot potential problems you might miss and recommend the best course of action. 

Keep It Clean

Leaving debris like leaves and twigs on your asphalt doesn't just look messy, it can actually damage your pavement. These materials hold moisture, leading to dampness and deterioration. Regularly sweeping and cleaning your pavement keeps it free from these damaging elements.

Moreover, a clean asphalt surface is safer to walk and drive on, reducing the risk of slips and vehicle damage during cold spells. Make a habit of checking for and removing debris, especially after storms or windy days, to keep your pavement in good condition.

Ensure Good Drainage

Water is a major problem for asphalt, especially with the freeze-thaw cycle in winter. Make sure your pavement has good drainage to avoid standing water. A good drainage system helps keep water away from your pavement, protecting it from damage.

Improving drainage might involve clearing out gutters and drains near your pavement or even adjusting the landscape to ensure water flows away from the asphalt. 

Fix Damage Promptly

Even with all these precautions, your pavement might still get damaged. Fixing potholes and cracks quickly stops them from getting bigger. Fast repairs keep your pavement strong and can save you money by avoiding more extensive repairs later.

It's also important to choose the right materials and methods for repairs, depending on the damage and the type of asphalt you have. Sometimes, a simple patch might be enough, but other times, more comprehensive work may be needed. Regular checks can help you catch and fix problems early.

Pavement Maintenance Made Simple 

Keeping your pavement safe from winter damage takes a bit of effort, but it's well worth it in the long run. By following these pavement maintenance steps, you can help ensure your asphalt stays in good condition, no matter the weather. Remember, a little care now can prevent big headaches in the future.

Asphalt is a popular choice among homeowners for driveways due to its durability and cost-effectiveness. Many companies use recycled asphalt for the base layer, which is environmentally friendly and more affordable than fresh asphalt. These factors make asphalt the ideal material for your driveway.


You don’t need to worry about compromising the aesthetic appeal of your property as asphalt gives a seamless finish.


Asphalt is known to withstand harsh weather conditions and natural elements better than other materials and is less likely to get damaged easily.


It is an easy-to-manage option as it requires little maintenance and stays intact for extended periods.


This is one of the primary reasons why asphalt is a preferred choice among homeowners. 


Asphalt is more flexible than concrete, making it less vulnerable to significant cracking.

"Asphalt overlay" or "Resurfacing" refers to paving asphalt on top of existing asphalt. It is generally done after comprehensively examining your current asphalt pavement for cracks, faults, or problem areas. If your pavement is in good condition, the top layer is removed for improved grip and a fresh layer of asphalt is laid on top. Sealing may be ideal if your existing asphalt is in good shape but needs renewal.


Cold mix asphalt is typically used in the off-season or for minor repairs. We employ hot mix asphalt most of the season for optimal results.


Asphalt aftercare requires you not to use or drive over it for 24-48 hours. The duration is longer for hotter seasons. It should be followed with the standard regular seal coating and resurfacing maintenance.


A homeowner can expect the driveway to last 30 years or longer if they use good products. Many projects can survive 40 to 50 years if properly maintained. Regular maintenance and vigilant care of your pavement or parking lot can considerably extend your property's life.
