Pavement Repairs in Gauteng – Causes of Pavement Damage
Ground that is not strong enough such as spongy ground and other unstable soil is not good for pavement. Organic activity such as plant growth, roots and decomposition of underlying material can weaken the top soil, especially if water is present
Thankfully, soil strength can improve by using geotextiles to make a stronger base for load bearing pavement.
Additionally, replacement poor soil material with better soil that has good characteristic for compaction and strength is another solution.
Washing away of soil by rain water
Pavement damage from summer heat rays.
Poor ground preparation – ground below paving should be free of roots and rubble, therefore one has to dig first. After that the ground should be level, and should slope away from buildings. You can then compact the ground. Good drainage is a result of good ground preparation. Poor quality sand should be taken out and good sand should replace it, sand than can compact well.
Poor workmanship – a good paving job means lines are straight, curves are smooth and pavement is level and edges secure. Additionally, the edges of pavers should be secure and should not move. This is done by using a layer of concrete to hold it together. Pavement finishes should make sure that the cut offs are fitting well and are intact. Consequently, bricks will not move.
