Water is the most destructive element to your pavements. If it rained and snowed everywhere but on our roads and bridges, 90 percent of
highway and street work would be eliminated. Since that is not likely to happen any time soon, we need to prevent water intrusion into our pavements. Filling or sealing pavement cracks to prevent
water from entering the base and subbase will extend the the life of your pavement by years!
Our Crack filling service is intended to fill the crack and keep most of the water out of the pavement. When water is kept out, pavement deterioration is slowed.
As seasonal temperature changes. Consequently, cracks and joints are expanding and contracting when the pavements move. Fillers do not expand or contract. Sealing the cracks with a flexible rubberized asphalt that bonds to the crack walls and moves with the pavement will prevent water intrusion. Crack Filling can reduce pavement deterioration by restricting water penetration into underlying base and subbase layers. This restriction helps to maintain pavement structural capacity and limits future degradation. Simply stated, sealing cracks and joints in pavements extends the service life of the surface treatment and the pavement.
This should be done every year or two on your pavement. Give us a call today!
