ASPHALT CRACK REPAIR SERVICES
Asphalt cracks are unattractive and uninviting, but their ugly appearance is not the only reason why they are considered to be a problem. Cracks can threaten the overall strength of your asphalt pavement which often leads to severe structural damages and huge expenses over the long term.
Water is the worst enemy of asphalt. It penetrates through cracks to your pavement and gets into the base layers, where they can create potholes which will eventually ruin your asphalt sub-base. However, if you partner with good crack sealing contractors and fill asphalt cracks in time, you will extend your asphalt lifespan and save money in the long run. Moreover, you will ensure pedestrians’ and drivers’ safety. The key to proper pavement protection is being always proactive and alert.
SEALER APPLICATION PROCESS
Our cost-effective asphalt crack repair services begin with cleaning the debris, vegetation, and dust from the cracks. We use a high-pressure stream of air with a grinding wheel to remove everything that stuck in the cracks to ensure asphalt crack filler adheres tightly to joints. After that, we hot apply a polymer-based material to seal the cracks. The extreme heat causes the asphalt sides in the cracks to melt and create a stronger bond with the sealer upon cooling. High elasticity of the filler material makes it expand and contract with the thermal movements of the crack. Moreover, its high melting point prevents it from tracking or picking up with traffic. Once the fill has cooled down, your pavement is ready for sealcoating.
For pavement crack sealing, Mid Atlantic Asphalt uses only the highest-quality polymer-based material, CrackMaster Supreme. It has high elasticity for seal cracks in asphalt surfaces. This sealant is rubberized and hot-applied. It is formulated to withstand very high temperatures without experiencing polymer degradation. When properly applied, it forms a resilient sealant for pavements.
