Cracks allow moisture penetration from rain, snow, salt, and ice which erode the base of your parking lot. As these harmful substances penetrate into 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 as potholes are trip hazards to tenants, customers, and employees.
Crack sealing is truly the first-line of defense against the degradation and eventual failure of the pavement. Sealing these gaps effectively stops the seepage of harmful substances and prolongs the life of your pavement investment.
The Process. First, we clean all cracks with pressurized air. Vegetation and other impediments to crack sealing are cleared 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. A light aggregate material is finally added to the hot rubber to improve adhesion to the pavement surface.
