Maintenance of asphalt starts within the first year of placement.  There are many different types of maintenance depending on the existing condition of your asphalt and whether or not maintenance has been performed in the past.

Pavement Preservation:  This is the basic maintenance that is required to keep pavement in the best possible condition.  It is best to create a maintenance budget at the time your new pavement is installed.  This includes sealing cracks and repairing failures on a yearly basis along with seal-coating within 1-2 years of the pavement being new and every 2-3 years thereafter.  This will keep your pavement looking new and fresh and help to minimize deterioration.

Pavement Overlay:  Once the oil starts to oxidize the pavement will start to lose its finer aggregate.  This will lead to a surface that is rough with the larger rock exposed.  If left this way, over time the larger rock will start to come out and the pavement will begin to deteriorate rapidly.  As long as the existing pavement is structurally sound then a new layer of asphalt can be applied giving you the look and feel of new asphalt.

Pavement Repave:  Once the pavement is left to fail you have no choice but a complete remove and replace of your pavement.  This consists of either recycling your pavement in place and then regrading and placing the asphalt or just removing the asphalt and hauling it to the asphalt plant for recycling, grading, and then reinstalling new asphalt.  Which is better for you depends on a variety of conditions.
