Crack Repair that Prevents Damage
Asphalt cracks are unsightly and uninviting but that’s not the only reason they’re a problem. Cracks also threaten the overall strength of your pavement, leading to severe structural issues and a major expense over the long term.
Cracks allow water to penetrate your pavement and seep into the underlying base layers, where they can create voids that turn into potholes and eventually destroy your asphalt’s foundation. The good news is that you can prevent this minor repair issue from becoming a major one.
Our cost effective crack filling services start by cleaning the dust, debris and vegetation from the crack using a high pressure stream of air with a high-powered grinding wheel. Then, we seal the crack using a hot applied, polymer-based material. The extreme heat during application causes the sides of the asphalt in the crack to melt and form a much stronger bond with the crack sealer upon cooling. Due to its high elasticity, our sealer expands and contracts with the thermal movements of the crack. Also, because of its high melting point, it will not track or pick up with traffic. Once the crack fill has cooled, your pavement is ready for a fresh seal coat, re-striping and re-painting of markings.
We are now ready to begin sealing your pavement, starting with the edge and working our way in. The result is a dark, attractive finish with edging lines as straight as possible. Your site is now ready for a fresh re-striping and re-painting of markings.
