But – even a well-kept field will show some signs of aging with years of heavy use. How will you know when it’s time to replace your turf? Keystone Sports Construction can help.

When is the Right Time to Replace Field Turf

Has your turf taken on a grayish-green color or a noticeably lighter shade than its original look? Color change is usually a sign of UV degradation and the first indication that your artificial turf field is nearing the end of its lifespan.

Other indicators include:

    • Splitting at the ends of turf fibers
    • Shedding of turf fibers
    • Seam separation
    • Loose field inlays that require frequent repair to prevent injury risk
    • Lines and inlays that appear more worn than the rest of the field
    • A firmer feeling underfoot

You may look past a worn field appearance, but synthetic turf in serious need of replacement can be put your athletes at risk.

Meeting the Standards for Safety

A field that feels too firm underfoot is often a sign of unsafe shock absorption levels and warrants the immediate attention of a turf expert. When fields have exceeded their warranty period, annual Gmax testing, the industry standard for gauging shock attenuation, is highly recommended. When tested at an unsafe level, its time to consider a new field.

Safety is often compromised with older fields because turf infill can collect in some areas of the field and become bare in others. Areas with less support between athletes and the hard surface can result in more severe injuries. Regular maintenance of the field can mitigate this problem, but over time the best way to keep ahead of serious injury is to have is your turf system evaluated by professionals.

Contact Keystone Sports Construction for expert inspection, testing, and evaluation of your field to determine if it can withstand a few more years of use or if it is ready for replacement.

Evaluating the Sub-base

The easiest time to replace your subbase is before you lay down new synthetic turf. To evaluate the condition of your existing base, our expert engineers can analyze it prior to the turf removal. We determine whether your base drains properly and if it still has the appropriate depth for optimal play.

Another option is to wait for the field’s surface to be removed. At that time, we can check the field for any drainage or leveling problems. If we detect any issues, we will recommend the best options to fix the problem. Although most subbases do not have issues and do not need replacement, with this option, we recommend a subbase contingency budget for planning.

Signs it may be time to replace your subbase:

  • Drainage or puddling issues
  • Wavy lines in the field or field markings
  • Depressions in the field

Keystone Sports Construction has the expertise to help you evaluate the condition of your subbase and guide you through both the process and options available if it needs replacement.
