Are reoccurring repairs a Budget Nightmare for 2016?

What’s on your Budget for the New Year? 

Are some of the same patches and fixes expected on your Budget again in 2016? If you are this pavement owner, just like last year and several years before that, this ugly repair is now a permanent line in the Budget. 

Plus, besides the cost of the materials, this downhill narrow stretch without shoulders creates potential safety hazards for both motorists forced to a stop and workers out on the road during the duration of the repair…YEAR AFTER YEAR.

Had a more proactive approach been taken—before the tale-tale signs of pavement decay—with a sound Asphalt Preservation strategy, this repair wouldn’t be a reoccurring nightmare. 

Being Pro-active with a sound Asphalt Preservation Strategy saves A LOT of money!
With proven cost savings—up to $10.80 for every $1 spent on Asphalt Preservation, just how much money is being wasted on reoccurring repair YEAR AFTER YEAR?

Why preserve a parking lot 1 yr after installation?

The bottom line:  IT SAVES MONEY!
FHWA, FAA, NAVFAC, MDOT, and AZDOT data all conclude, for $1 spent on Asphalt Preservation, up to $11 is saved by reducing replacement costs and extending pavement life.

Why does it work?
Preventing asphalt binder oxidation is a "first priority" and is critical to pavement longevity. According to FHWA research data, up to 80% of pavement flexibility is lost during the first 5 years. In other words, your pavements’ vital oils, essential for high performance, escape at a rapid pace and contribute to the Condition of your pavement.

While pavements in Good Condition, may perform well, you can sustain your lots in New Condition well before pavements begin to show signs of age and oxidation.
GSB-88 ® (Gilsonite Sealer Binder), seals and traps all the New Oils present during manufacture deep inside that maintain, pliability, ductility, and flexibility—and keep the damaging weather and elements locked OUT of your binder.

Like the way butter seeps down into bread, GSB®’s unique molecular properties create a durable seal that not only keep aggregates tightly glued together, but penetrate down to become part of the matrix itself. The outcome is a binder with unmatched strength–durability and bonding properties with high density.

Original pavement performance, in this case, NEW CONDITION, is preserved for decades of trouble free pavements and load carrying capabilities!...and YOU SAVE MONEY!

A Healthy Outside Starts From the Inside!
Preserve the binder and maintain high pavement performance while doubling the life of your parking lots!

This is a different way of thinking about the health of your pavements. Rather than being REACTIVE to what happens to your asphalt and throwing a lot of money at repairs, this is a process of being PROACTIVE and protecting one of your most expensive assets!

Night Repairs Giving You Budget Nightmares?

The days are getting shorter and if worsening pavement deterioration throughout your lot is giving you nightmares, there are now less daylight hours for necessary repairs that you hope will keep your binder protected throughout the harsh unpredictable winter months.

And, if your business is open 24 hours, less parking might mean customers may drive on down the road and spend their money at your competitor’s store!

What if you could make those closures less often, for less time, and ultimately save you money? GSB-88® lasts 2x as long as other processes AND cures quickly AND saves you money.

GSB-88 ® Featured in the News

Crews are applying a product called GSB-88 ®, which “penetrates the asphalt and fills in all those voids,” said Jeremy Noel, the department’s streets and sewers manager. If not filled, potholes could lead to bigger problems that Noel is trying to avoid.
“We are proactive in trying to extend the lives of our pavements,”
Noel said.
One application of GSB-88 can last up to 10 years and delay expensive resurfacing projects.

Council Bluffs resident Bill Grove said he is happy about the possible solution.“Makes sense to me to try something new,” he said. “It’s going to be a lot less expensive than putting two more inches of asphalt on it.”

Noel said he knows the department has a lot of work to do. In the meantime, he is asking motorists to be patient while crews finish the job.

“It’s an inconvenience for a little while, but it’s worth it in the end,” he said. Council Bluffs road officials plan to test another product on the roads later this summer to see which will work best in the long run.
