Cracks in your pavement allow water and moisture to penetrate the surface leading to damaged asphalt, safety issues and potential sub-grade.
Crack Sealing can reduce pavement deterioration by protecting cracks from future water penetration that could affect the underlying base and subbase layers. This restriction helps to maintain pavement structural capacity and limits future degradation.
Not only does failing pavement look bad, it is a safety issue. Problems such as potholes, cracking, or root damage can be hazardous for people and automobiles. Don‚Äôt wait for an accident to happen. We can fix any paving issues in the early stages and help you avoid a larger repair bill in the future.
Cracks are one of the leading causes of pavement failure. First and foremost, sealing cracks and joints extends the service life of the asphalt pavement. Cracks can form in the normal course of aging, or they may be the result of cracks below the surface or movements in the base caused by shrinkage. Our experts can identify the culprit and fill the cracks with an elastomeric asphaltic compound.
While crack filling is the preferred method for dealing with 7-15 mm cracks, it isn’t always the best solution. Fatigue cracking involves several interconnected cracks that form a pattern resembling an alligator’s back–just like a gator, this can come back to bite you if you don’t deal with it early. An overall treatment, such as asphalt rubber chips or Cape Seal, is your best option for dealing with fatigue cracking.
