Maintenance analysis program required – catch an issue before it develops.
Excess Loose Material
As the surface weathers with traffic and time, the larger particles of the aggregate will loosen on the surface to create a natural look that leads to the “crunch underfoot” texture that is often sought after in natural settings. If loose material exceeds a ¼” depth, redistribute the particles over a greater surface, scarify the surface to a depth of 1”, water to a 1” depth, and compact with a roller of no less than 1000 lbs. In areas where a large roller is not available, you can use a vibratory plate tamper or a manual hand tamper if needed. Keep traffic off for 24-72 hours.
Rejuvunation/Fixing Damaged Area
Soak, scarify with a rake or nail drag and compact. Consult your dealer if you feel more material is needed to be integrated.
