The #1 priority for HOA members should be gaining a basic understanding pavement preservation. The stakes are high because mistakes are expensive and often followed by lawsuits.

"Every $1 spent keeping a good road good precludes spending $6.00 - $14.00 later."
- American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials



Understanding the right treatment, for right road, at the right time ensures:

  • Lowest possible expenditures
  • Higher aesthetics & property values
  • Fewer premature failures
  • No special assessments
  • More predictable costs
  • Reduced need for costly rehabilitation or reconstruction

The #1 priority for HOA members should be gaining a basic understanding pavement preservation. The stakes are high because mistakes are expensive and often followed by lawsuits.

"They helped us better understand what strategies to consider for extending the life of our pavement." – Granetta B. Red Canyon HOA President.

Effectively mitigating costs by extending the life of your pavement requires planning. If you have questions like...

  • When do I initiate a pavement preservation program? (The latest research shows the oxidative damage to pavement happens surprising early in a pavement’s life before visible cracking occurs. Proactive planning versus reacting reduces the cost of pavement ownership.)

  • I’m not sure if all options are being presented by my contractor? (Many contractors only tell about you what they offer, not necessarily what’s best for extending the life of your asphalt. You need to be aware of all the options before making a decision.)

  • Previously applied treatments didn’t last. Why? (Often it is just the nature of the treatment installed. For example, seal coats are becoming a less valuable option due to the development of High Density Mineral Bonds that have a considerable longer life. See HA5)

  • How do I know if I’m getting a quality treatment? (Only time will tell, so the wrong treatment can be a very costly mistake. The best assessment of what works is visiting projects that are four and five years old.)
