Resurfacing your tennis court resurfacing is a great way to extend the lifespan of your surface and make it safer for players. Generally speaking, asphalt surfaces will need to be resurfaced before they reach 75% of their lifespan. When a court is resurfaced, it becomes much smoother, improving traction and the overall feel of the surface.
Resurfacing a court is a fairly simple process, though it may take three to six days to complete the job depending on the size of your facility and the amount of damage that needs to be fixed. The first step is to clean the surface thoroughly. This will usually involve a power washer and degreaser. Then, the cracked areas will be repaired with Acrylic Patch Binder, which is an asphalt repair mix that is made from 100% acrylic latex binders.

This will spread the load more evenly and may help to reduce a settlement or reflection problem. It is also a good idea to check and clear the drainage points on a regular basis to make sure that they are working properly.
