Fatigue cracking is also known as ‘alligator’ or ‘crocodile’ cracking, and it is one of the most common ways that asphalt pavement can break down over time. The cracking patterns caused are extremely distinctive and resemble the scales on a reptile's back, hence the amphibian reference in the name.

Alligator cracking is also one of the more serious problems that an asphalt surface can develop, and it will only get worse over time if not addressed.

Unlike surface-level asphalt damage, alligator cracking is almost always caused by problems beneath the asphalt in the underlying layers, which are supposed to support the asphalt. When the pavement is carrying burdens that the supporting structure can't hold up, like heavy trucks or machinery, alligator cracking occurs.

While a small crack in a paved surface may not look dangerous, it is the sign of a potentially huge problem. Though small, when the freezing rain and snow hits, water will make its way into the crack and freeze, causing a much bigger issue to brew. Soon that tiny crack will become a much larger gap, or a chunk of broken-off asphalt.

What can you do to prevent a big headache? Call Xpress Sweeping for a free repair estimate. We will come to your commercial property, investigate the obvious problems and those that may be hiding beneath the surface, and give you an estimate for complete repair. Your property may need to be seal coated, or it may need a total regrading and resurfacing.

We offer comprehensive paved surface repair services, are family owned and operated, and serve a wide area in Rhode Island, parts of Massachusetts and parts of Connecticut. Click here for more information.

Now that the winter is finally over, our crews have been hard at work at our commercial clients' properties around the state cleaning up the last of the sand and debris. We know how important it is to present a clean, welcoming property to your customers, employees and visitors and we work around the clock to make it happen without disrupting your day-to-day business operations.

The first step to winter cleanup is eliminating the salt and sand left by plows throughout the winter. To do that, we use our sweeping and vacuuming trucks, along with a crew of dedicated and careful employees who use gas powered blowers to assist the larger machines.

Next we come through and inspect the property for damage such as potholes, cracks in the surfaces, or missing/damaged barriers. We also assess the landscaping. The end result is a welcoming commercial property ready for a busy Spring and Summer season!

We are preparing our sweeper and vacuum trucks for a busy cleanup season. After a long snowy winter, lots of salt, sand and debris still remains on paved areas all over the state, and we are looking forward to beautifying our customers' properties again.

One major concern going into the warmer weather is for the safety of vehicles on sandy surfaces, especially motorcycles. A motorcycle can easily slip going around a corner on a sandy surface. We take great care to clean, as if our own family members could be riding their motorcycles on the roads we are sweeping.

Another important reason for springtime cleaning is to clear gutters of all of the debris from the winter. That way, the surrounding areas will be less prone to flooding during springtime storms, and water runoff will drain normally.

If your property needs an overhaul after this very long winter, give us a call at 401-825-6961 for your free estimate!
