Do you need an exceptional Toronto asphalt paving company to handle maintenance and repairs?

It’s critical that you stay on top of any asphalt maintenance and repair needs if you hope to maximize the life expectancy of your pavement. Fortunately, the team at Empire Paving has been providing top-notch maintenance and repair services to customers throughout the greater Toronto area (GTA) for over 40 years.

Whether your surface requires preventative maintenance or it’s riddled with large cracks, here are five of the most popular types of asphalt maintenance and repairs that we offer!


Sealcoating is an essential part of preventative maintenance that should be performed once every three years at minimum—and even more frequently for those who face harsh weather conditions, high traffic volume, and other factors. This protective layer shields your asphalt pavement from ultraviolet (UV) rays, chemicals, debris, and more. When we sealcoat an asphalt surface, we do so as quickly and efficiently as possible in order to keep downtime to a minimum!

Crack Sealing

Regardless of size, cracks can threaten the life of your pavement. When neglected, small cracks grow into large cracks, and large cracks eventually result in potholes.

Whenever you notice cracks that are larger than 1/8” wide, it’s important that you order crack sealing from your local asphalt paving contractor. At Empire Paving, we repair cracks by applying an adhesive sealant to the areas. This not only stops any moisture from penetrating the pavement but also prevents existing cracks from expanding.

Line Striping

Unfortunately, the bright white lines and markings on your asphalt pavement will only fade with time — especially if you live in an area that experiences bad weather and your surface accommodates heavy traffic.

While most property owners require new line striping every two or three years on average, it’s wise to check on the status of your lines and markings every 12 months. As lines and markings help organize traffic, the safety of your employees and customers depends on it!

Pothole Repair

When asphalt cracks are left unaddressed, they often connect with other cracks to form potholes — large divots that create a safety hazard for vehicles. Fortunately, we can restore the quality of your pavement through a repair method known as asphalt patching.

During this process, we pour one or two inches of hot-mix asphalt over the affected area, smooth it out, and allow it to cure so that you’re left with a uniform surface.


If you’re dealing with multiple potholes, cracks, and other blemishes, making individual repairs isn’t typically a very effective solution.

Instead, we often recommend asphalt resurfacing. To resurface your pavement, we pour a new layer of hot-mix asphalt over an entire problematic area. This addresses multiple concerns at once while giving your pavement a more consistent appearance.
