A Typical Business Will Pay $213,020 EXTRA Due to Mismanagement of Their Pavement Asset
Proactive private businesses and organizations by the thousands have uncovered a strategy that saves them money while effectively preserving their pavement assets using HA5 – High Density Mineral Bond.
Whatever the use of the asphalt pavement you own or manage, remember one thing: you can manage your asphalt assets or they will manage you. If you manage them, that means a lot less out of your pocket.
Evaluating what’s proven to work in your area will help spend the least amount of money over time. The more you get educated you become on pavement and put the right strategies in place, you will benefit from:
- The lowest possible expenditures
- Higher aesthetics & property values
- Fewer premature failures
- No special assessments
- More predictable costs
- Reduced need for costly rehabilitation or reconstruction
Pavement is one of your most expensive assets. Becoming educated in pavement preservation will help you choose the treatment for your roadways that will achieve the maximum extension of pavement life for each dollar invested.
Effectively mitigating costs by extending the life of your pavement assets requires planning. Know the answers to questions like…
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.
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.
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)
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.
