Because of the freeze and thaw cycle of weather, asphalt can break down and develop deep holes that compromise the pavement’s underlayer, called potholes. These holes are repaired by first removing all broken asphalt and debris. Next, a pothole can be temporarily fixed in winter with cold-patch asphalt products, but they need to be professionally filled in with proper hot asphalt for a permanent fix.
Cracks form in asphalt when water gets between the binders and aggregate that makes up asphalt pavement, then freezes, pushing the pavement apart. During the next rain/freeze cycle, more water gets in, and cracks widen. While home improvement stores sell DIY crack fillers, they can often make cracks worse. A reputable paving company will seal cracks with professional hot-pour asphalt products and completely seal over cracks.
When pavement sinks or breaks down in a large area, the recommended repair is asphalt patching, but how are these asphalt repairs performed? Your trusted local paving contractors have several different patching methods. Semi-permanent methods usually involve cold-patch asphalt with professional compaction. A permanent asphalt patch repair involves cutting and removing damaged asphalt, then filling the hole with hot-pour asphalt and using specialized equipment to pack it down and create a new, smooth surface.
