While in some cases we find it in poor condition, the materials that give asphalt it’s versatility and durability make is the best option for many applications. Over time, rain, tires, weight, ice, car fluids and temperature make it susceptible to damage and wear. These damages will jeopardize the the life-span of any pavement application. In some cases repairs can be done to increase the overall lifespan and in others it will be necessary to completely replace the asphalt.
Asphalt patching is the process of repair one to several areas of damaged pavement when the majority of the surface is still intact. To patch an area, a paving company will remove the damaged or deteriorated area with machinery to the depth necessary to allow it to be properly repaired. A stone or gravel base will be applied to the area that outlines the surface to be repaired. Doing so, will allow the patch to bond to the surrounding area. Asphalt is then applied to the patch area and compacted and leveled with paving equipment to complete the project.
Asphalt sealcoat is a blend or liquid fillers and tiny solid particles of sand that when combined protect and restore asphalt pavements. Sealcoat is generally made from dissolved asphalt, fillers and water. It is applied with rollers, brushes, or with spraying application. Sealcoat is generally used to protect and rejuvenate worn and crack asphalt.
