Article Summary: 

This article discusses the importance of proper construction and maintenance of asphalt pavements in condominium properties to achieve their full life expectancy. Factors influencing asphalt performance include initial engineering assessment, contractor expertise, adequate drainage, traffic volume, and exposure to UV radiation and freeze-thaw cycles. Common types of asphalt deterioration include longitudinal cracks, settlement around catch basins, alligator cracking, rutting, and potholes. Regular maintenance and localized repairs every 5 years can extend the overall service life and reduce costs. An engineer's expertise is recommended for initial design, construction review, and condition assessment to determine the appropriate repair approach.
