Repair Methods for Cracks in Asphalt
Quick & Easy
Asphalt crack repair allows many companies to avoid pricey full repavement without ceding quality. It's a common maintenance service from Liberty Sealcoat.
Using an asphalt-based filler, the material is heated to a liquid state before being poured. The filler is pliable and rubberlike as it cools in the crack, allowing for contraction and expansion as the temperature changes.
Water- or asphalt-based, the filler used for cold-pour method becomes a hard solid as it dries in the crack. It's frequently used for low-activity asphalt or short-term emergency repairs.
Asphalt Crack Repair Process
Like several of Liberty Sealcoat's services, asphalt crack repair starts by cleaning the damaged area with tools such as wire brooms and high-volume air. For hot-pour method, a specially designed applicator heats the filler to a precise temperature before pouring into the crack. Cold-pour filler is directly applied to the damaged area and allowed to harden. Benefits of asphalt crack repair include:
- Doubling asphalt lifespan with crack repairs & sealcoating.
- Protecting subbase & subgrade from water penetration.
- Timely repairs are possible at the same time as a pavement overlay.
- Providing an even surface for pedestrians & vehicles.
