Cracks naturally develop in asphalt due to oxidation and pavement deterioration. Neglected cracks quickly develop into much more serious and costly issues. Crackfilling or jointsealing is truly the first step of defense against the degradation and eventual failure of pavement. Jointsealing these gaps effectively stops the seepage of harmful substances and prolongs the life of your pavement investment.
What happens to unmaintained cracks?
Cracks allow moisture penetration from rain, which erodes the base of your parking lot. As these harmful substances penetrate into the base course of the pavement, the cracks widen and eventually cause potholes. Unrepaired potholes will chip away and become more severe pavement issues. This exposes you to serious liability, as potholes are trip hazards to tenants, customers, and employees.
Our proven process includes first cleaning all cracks with pressurized air. Vegetation and other impediments to crack sealing are cleared with a grazing wheel. Cracks are then sealed using hot-applied joint sealant that matched with highway specifications.
