Synthetic Turf fields do not last forever. Longevity in large part will be determined by the number of years of service as well as the effectiveness of any maintenance program over the life of the field.
Signs of mid-life to end of life status are evidenced by synthetic turf fibers that no longer retain tensile strength. This results in horizontal position of the fibers which leads to a highly compacted surface. This condition has a great effect on the safety and playability of the field.
Base materials and existing drainage require little or no preparation when preparing for the installation of a new playing surface.
