By conducting two assessments each year, one in the spring and one in the fall, defects can be detected early and corrected while they are still minor, long before they lead to the failure of the asphalt. The assessments identify the overall condition of the asphalt and locations where spot repairs are required. It is also recommended that a sealer be applied every five years to slow the rate of loss of oils from the asphalt due to heat and exposure to the sun.
