Keeping your athletics Running Track Resurfacing in good condition can help athletes perform at their best. However, as time goes by and usage increases, the track may start to show signs of wear and tear that need to be repaired or resurfaced to keep the surface smooth and safe for use. It can be difficult to know when resurfacing or replacement of the track is necessary, but having a professional running track company on board to inspect the track regularly will help to nip problems in the bud before they become more serious and expensive to repair.
Quality resurfacing will smooth out small cracks, improve surface traction, and extend the life of your track for years to come. You can even add a fresh coat of color to match your school or sports facility’s colors and boost the visual appeal of your entire sports complex!
Eco-Friendly Options for Sustainable Track Resurfacing
Reflective cracks or cracks that spread to a larger area of the track are indicators that it is time for an overhaul. This process will involve removing the top layer and asphalt/concrete base in those areas where damage has occurred. This is also an excellent opportunity to upgrade to a different resilient surface, add or fix lanes, correct wavy track ovals, and improve drainage.
A complete track reconstruction will replace the track surface and the underlying asphalt to get your track back to new again. This is the most extensive option, but is sometimes required if severe cracking or drainage issues are present. In order to do this, the track will need to be removed, a geotechnical survey done and new asphalt installed.
