We deliver crack sealing services—truly the first line of defense against the degradation and eventual failure of pavement.
Cracks allow moisture penetration from rain, snow, salt and ice, which erodes the base of your parking lot. As these harmful substances penetrate the subbase 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. Among other risks, potholes are trip hazards to tenants, customers, and employees.
Sealing these gaps effectively stops the seepage of harmful substances and prolongs the life of your pavement.
- First, the crack(s) are cleaned with pressurized air.
- Vegetation and other impediments are cleared from the crack with a grazing wheel or, in cases of extreme vegetation, a Taffa torch.
- Cracks are sealed using hot-applied rubberized joint sealant that exceeds Federal specifications.
- Finally, a light aggregate material is added to the hot rubber to improve adhesion to the pavement surface.
