ProCorM Tennis Court Crack Repair & Maintenance
Although All Weather Tennis Courts are essentially maintenance free, periodically crack repair and refinishing are necessary. 7 years is the expected length of time before a quality painted surface might need crack repair and repainting.
Cracking is probably the most common problem with asphalt tennis courts. As asphalt weathers it will lose its integrity, paint fades and cracks can develop. Extreme temperature changes cause expansion and contraction which may result in cracks.
Most contractors simply install crack filler or put fiberglass fabric over the cracks. However, almost without exception, both of these very common repair techniques will fail within one year, thus wasting both time and money.
ProCorM uses the ARMOR Crack Repair System. The ARMOR® Crack Repair System utilizes a knitted fabric that will expand as the crack widens. The secret to making this repair work is how it is purposely NOT bonded to the court in the vicinity of the crack, thereby allowing more of the fabric to absorb any movement or growth of the crack without the fabric tearing or delaminating from the surface. Thus, the reason why the ARMOR® Crack Repair System works so well is that it effectively spreads the stress of the crack over a wide area of expandable fabric-other brand name repair "systems" do not do this. The court can then be painted. Depending on your budget, you can choose to paint the areas repaired or the entire court. Either way, the result is a professional, playable tennis court.
Cracks and damage, due to weather and not properly maintaining
ProCorM repairing and sealing the damaged court
A hard surface tennis court requires little maintenance. Periodic sweeping or blowing to remove debris and annual cleaning with a mild detergent to remove any mildew may be all that is needed. If you have a Har-Tru Tennis Court regular maintenance is required in order to keep the tennis court playing at its best. Brushing the court after play is important. But weekly or bi-weekly maintenance is recommended by a professional.
At ProCorM, processional court maintenance may include leveling low or disturbed areas, brushing and power rolling, application of additional material if needed and a check of the net and other equipment. Our professionals will also monitor the court to make sure the irrigation to the court is adequate, not too dry or too wet.
