Asphalt Driveways Brisbane South

Is Your Bitumen or Asphalt Tarmac Safe? These Contractors Can Fix Your Driveways in Brisbane South

A lot of people don’t feel as though they need to deal with cracked or uneven asphalt right away. They regard broken bitumen as more of an aesthetic concern than anything else. For that reason, many people are willing to let their tarmac get pretty rough before they take any concrete steps (pun intended) to fix it. All kidding aside, though, this can cause real problems. Letting cracks and holes destroy your asphalt driveways in Brisbane South can prove to be much worse than a mere eyesore in the long run.

Why is that? Simply put, it comes down to a question of safety. You might not think so, but even a small change in height on a pedestrian surface like a tarmac can make walking there unsafe. Moreover, if you’re responsible for maintaining the asphalt (or bitumen) that surface is made of, then you may find yourself legally liable for any injuries that a pedestrian sustains by walking there. So how can you make sure that you protect yourself, your property and your finances from that kind of loss? It’s very easy—you just need to keep maintaining your bitumen driveways in Brisbane South. The best way to do that, of course, is by hiring high quality asphalt contractors in the Brisbane South area. Good contractors can repair your driveways long before they pose a safety hazard to anybody who happens to be walking on your property.

What Makes Tarmac Driveways in Brisbane South Dangerous?

As it turns out, there are very specific laws governing the safety of pedestrian surfaces. For example, can you guess what the maximum acceptable abrupt change in height for a pedestrian area is? Only 6mm. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but when you think about how little most people lift their feet each time they take a step it begins to make sense. That being the case, you want to make sure that you don’t have any defects in your driveways—even minor ones. If you do, you could find yourself looking down the wrong end of a lawsuit when someone trips and gets hurt.
