Asphalt simply does not last forever. Despite how much we might try, natural elements and nature itself cause problems and create cracks, potholes, and other asphalt issues that can make the road difficult to drive on comfortably. However, if there are several cracks in the asphalt on a specific road or parking lot, you might not have to start completely over.
If the cracks in the pavement are minor, asphalt maintenance experts can come out to perform crack sealing, which will prevent the cracks from getting worse and improve the quality of the road or parking lot as a whole.
How Does Crack Sealing Work?
When a company comes out to perform crack sealing, they will employ a hi-spec polymeric hot crack sealant. This mixture must meet federal standards for crack sealant, so you don’t have to worry about getting a low-quality sealant. However, you do have to worry about the quality of the work that is being done.
At Precision Asphalt Maintenance, we always remove vegetation such as weeds and debris from the area before sealing the cracks. Additionally we will remove loose dirt from the road or parking lot before beginning work on your project. This will ensure high-quality and long-lasting crack sealing.
Can All Asphalt Cracks Be Sealed?
The simple answer is no. Some roads and parking lots are in such poor condition that a complete asphalt removal and replacement is necessary. However, if you have regular maintenance done on the asphalt, it should not get to that point.
When Precision Asphalt Maintenance comes on to the project, we will determine whether crack sealing is the best method of asphalt repair and give you an estimate accordingly.
