Once again, it’s hurricane season in Florida. Perched right on the east coast, Broward, Palm Beach, Martin, and St Lucie counties are right in the path of tropical storms and 100+ mph winds.

When the hurricane warnings start pouring in, you and your family’s safety are the top priorities.

But after the clouds roll away, it’s time to survey the damage.

Florida driveways and parking lots often suffer extensive surface damage after hurricanes.

Here’s what you should know about the effect a hurricane can have on your driveway.

Hurricane Damage to Paved Surfaces

Flood waters are the most common cause of pavement damage in a hurricane.

Rainwater alone isn’t the only problem. Hurricanes bring in a storm surge of salty seawater, which can be even more damaging for paved surfaces.

Add to all this the fact that the soil underneath your paved driveway may have dried and sunk away during summer heat. This leaves openings under your pavement for rainwater to collect and further weaken your concrete or asphalt.

Floods and high winds in a hurricane tip over cars, destroy buildings, and down utility poles. Then the hurricane could drag all of this heavy debris across your property and scrape up your paved surface.

Paving Repairs After a Hurricane

Depending on what kind of damage your driveway experienced in the hurricane, you might need repairs such as:

  • Crack repair
  • Patching
  • Resurfacing
  • Complete replacement

It’s hard to prevent a hurricane from damaging your asphalt or cement driveway. But at least you’ve got a paving company you can count on for repairs when the storm clears!

Contact Sunshine Services when you’re ready for us to assess the damage a hurricane did to your driveway.

Just had an asphalt residential driveway replaced. It looks absolutely fantastic. I dealt with both David and his father Daniel in the setting up of this job. What a pleasure it was dealing with both of them. Courteous, and most importantly, professional. I would recommend Sunshine Services in a heartbeat. Their work crew was an asset also to their company.
