Efficient maintenance of a tennis court

Asphalt courts that have reached the 5-7 year mark will most likely require resurfacing to address various defects and restore optimal playability and appearance. The resurfacing process consists of pressure washing, leveling to address low spots, also known as bird baths, repair of cracks, delamination and any coating damage, and finally, the application of a new acrylic coating system. Typically, tennis court crack repair is the predominant component of the maintenance process. Mid Atlantic Asphalt utilizes the Armor Crack Repair System for this purpose. We have successfully repaired hundreds of thousands of feet of cracks in this manner. Take a more in-depth look at the resurfacing process.

Annual Service Contracts

Mid Atlantic offers annual service contracts to all our customers. For a minimal cost, you can choose to have our crew service your court. We recommend annual maintenance of a tennis court to protect your initial resurfacing investment. The service typically includes pressure washing, crack repair and correction of any surface problems. Additional service options include color coating, which is an additional color coat that keeps the court looking new while maintaining surface texture, service to existing court equipment and fence repairs.

Pressure Washing

For most hard courts, pressure washing is an annual service that keeps the court clean and looking great. The coating system on the playing surface needs to stay clean or accumulated dirt will break down the components of the system. Not to mention the fact that dirty courts are slippery and unsightly. Often, hard courts require only minimal cleaning if performed annually.

Crack Repair

Over time, even well-сonstructed courts will begin to crack due to seasonal freezing and thawing. In such cases, annual tennis court crack repair will be able to prevent further structural damage and keep your courts safe for playing. The cracks are repaired with Sport Master’s Crack Magic acrylic filler and painted with acrylic paint to match a court color. A crack repaired in this manner will need to be addressed each year but the cost is minimal. Often, a crack repair procedure can keep a court functioning until budget dollars are available for a renovation.

Tennis court painting service

To maintain surface texture and overall color intensity, color coating every two to three years can keep any court looking and playing great.

Mid Atlantic Asphalt also offers tennis court striping service. Lines are usually 2” wide and can be applied in a variety of textures and colors since the same surface can be used for several games. For instance, it’s very common for tennis courts to have additional lines for basketball or volleyball games.
