ASPHALT REPAIR

Asphalt surfaces can often be repaired. Over time, your asphalt may show signs of wear and tear, especially if you’re in an area that gets a lot of snow. Large areas can be repaired can often be repaired with an asphalt overlay. This type of repair will add an additional layer to your asphalt, increasing strength, durability, and will make it look brand new. Pot holes can be patched by filling them with new compacted asphalt. Areas with a lot of small cracks, often called “alligatored” areas, can be saw-cut, removed and filled with new asphalt as well.

How Are Repairs Made To Asphalt?

In order to understand the process of asphalt repairs, it’s helpful to know what asphalt is made of. Compacted granular fill makes up the foundation under the asphalt. This material is strong and has excellent draining qualities, so it’s the perfect choice to support your asphalt. While you can’t tell by looking at it, asphalt is a composite mixture of sand, rock and asphalt binder. The asphalt is applied on top of the compacted granular fill to make a seamless surface.

The kind of asphalt repair that’s needed depends on the extent of the damage or wear and tear. It’s important to get asphalt maintenance regularly by professionals to keep potholes and road heaves from tree roots under control. If you have light damage to your asphalt, then our professionals can help by using the skin patching technique to extend the life of your asphalt. For more serious damage, we can assist you by removing the asphalt entirely and regrading the substrate for a brand new asphalt surface.
