Tennis Court Repairs
If you’re a Tennis Court Repairs, you know that a well-maintained court will provide years of fun and exercise. However, even the most well-maintained court will eventually need repair. Whether it’s the result of the weather or overuse, any tennis court will show signs of wear and tear with time. The most common sign that it’s time for a repair is the presence of cracks. These may be minor and cosmetic or they can indicate that larger problems exist beneath the surface.
Crack repair is an important part of any maintenance program. The most popular crack filler is ProCorM’s ARMOR Crack Repair System, which is a non-sticky rubberized sand-filled product. It is easy to apply to small cracks and wipe away any excess residue with a slightly damp rag or sponge. The secret to ARMOR’s success is that it doesn’t bond to the cracked area of the court, but instead spreads the crack stress over an extensive area of expandable fabric-many other brand name repair systems do not do this.
The Science of Tennis Court Drainage Systems
Water damage is another major reason that courts need to be repaired. Standing water leaves mineral deposits that create depressions in the court surface. These depressions are not only unsightly but they can also lead to injuries for players.
When a court is damaged to the point that resurfacing or reconstruction is required it can be a very costly process. Reconstruction is a multi-step procedure that typically involves pulverizing the existing asphalt surface, stripping and hauling, inspection of the base materials, application of new oil-based asphalt along with an acrylic color surface and lines, fencing repairs or replacement and lighting repairs or replacement.
