Well-maintained asphalt lasts for many years. However, vehicle and foot traffic, along with local weather conditions, gradually damage the surface. These factors lead to little wear and tear in the beginning, but later manifest in cracks and potholes.
Asphalt surfaces are also at risk for damage due to the freeze-thaw cycle. This damage also takes the form of small cracks across the surface,
Repairing these is cheaper and less time-consuming than if you were to ignore them and let them escalate.
There are two primary goals to asphalt repair:
Cracks and holes allow water to seep into the base and damage the asphalt. This is especially true if the asphalt surface is subject to freezing and thawing. While crack filling works, it is a temporary solution. That’s why the best way to prolong the life of your asphalt is to seal any cracks as they develop.
If you don’t fix cracks on time, they can develop into ugly and deep potholes. At CAM Services, were offer four types of pothole patching:
- Surface patching
- Spray-injection patching
- Infrared heat patching
- Cold weather emergency patching
