Cracks naturally develop throughout the pavement’s life cycle due to oxidation and pavement deterioration. Once cracks form, they allow water to penetrate under the asphalt and into the foundation of your parking lot. If left untreated, cracks will develop into much more serious and costly issues. Many foundations are made of rock or clay, which washes away easily when introduced to water. Once the foundation erodes, the pavement loses the support it needs to perform properly resulting in pavement settlement, “alligator” cracking, and eventually potholes and repair areas.
Crack sealing is your pavement’s first line of defense against the degradation and eventual failure of the asphalt pavement by preventing moisture and other harmful substances from seeping into the base layers of the asphalt, where it is likely to cause the most damage.
Our proven crack sealing process begins with cleaning all cracks with pressurized air and/or a grazing wheel to clear all vegetation and debris from the cracks. These cracks are then sealed using a hot-applied rubberized joint sealant that exceeds federal highway specification.
