There are many reasons why you may need to carry out asphalt floor repairs. While the asphalt flooring is in service like a lot of floors it can receive ‘impact fractures’. This creates shock to the waterproofing membrane and a crack or dig mark can occur.
Once this has been identified a repair will need to carried out. Another reason for mastic asphalt floor repairs being required is damage to the location on the floor where a fire has occurred. The asphalt is heated, re-melted and damaged. Typical reasons for fire damage occuring can be because of balcony barbecues or small fires which have been suffered by the property.
Another common reason for asphalt floor repairs being needed is due to an oil or petrol spillage. This generally occurs in a car park area where leaking vehicles cause the problem. The oil from these vehicles cause the faster breakdown of the asphalt waterproof decking. This can result in destruction of the covering.
If any of the above do occur it is important to rectify the problem as soon as possible in order to maximise the lifetime of your asphalt waterproofing.
The great thing about mastic asphalt is that it is easy to repair if you use specialist asphalt contractors. And once it is repaired, the asphalt surface is restored to a status where it is as good as new.

“I found Heritage Asphalt by accident on the Internet. It was a video about asphalting steps. I called Ryun who was very professional and had a great deal of experience and knowledge. The job was booked in straightaway and a team set about taking off old asphalt rebuilding and repairing the big Victorian staircase and then asphalting. The finish was quite amazing, these guys are very skillful at what they do and My husband and I were delighted. They were a professional team really hard working and highly recommend them.” Customer in London

“Ryan and team arrived, late afternoon, as agreed, to review balcony, approx. 25m2, 3 sides fed by tiled roof and one long length hand-rail. Problem, 3 leaks in different places from 10yr old asphalt roof. We discussed the problem and Ryun suggested a choice of two plan of action. We found his quotation very acceptable. This work was completed as agreed, in only a few days, to our complete satisfaction. Eight months after completion, I can now report that after a very wet winter, the roof is in a sound state. An excellent job done.” Customer in Cambridge
