Pavement is simply the outermost layer of a hard surface, not unlike the enamel on teeth. If this layer is not protected, the entire structure can be compromised. To avoid this, sealcoats should be applied every few years and any damage should be quickly repaired. Water and chemicals can penetrate if given the chance and cause damage to the sub-grade when pavement is allowed to fail. A damaged sub-grade will, in turn, cause even more damage to the pavement as it shifts beneath it. Over time pavement will eventually need to be replaced even if it is well cared for.
