If you had a hole in the wall of your house, would you tear the whole house down and rebuild it? Of course not. But most professional paving contractors want to tear out your driveway to fix potholes and cracks! They think that anything less isn’t worth their time. And the small pothole guys don’t have the expertise to do proper repairs. They buy cold fill from the hardware store which decays rapidly, leaving you with a hole full of loose gravel! We have high tech infrared equipment that heats up the area and then we fill the pothole with hot asphalt from our asphalt recycling machine which seals the area from further decay. Asphalt pavement begins to deteriorate almost as soon as it’s placed. As the pavement is exposed to oxygen, the asphalt hardens. This hardening results in a brittle surface that will eventually crack. The cracks enable oxygen and rainwater to penetrate the pavement, often into the sub base, weakening it and reducing pavement strength. Sealcoating protects the surface and fills surface voids, reducing the pavement’s exposure to oxygen and water, and extending pavement life.
Sealcoating brings back the dark black color of the original pavement, making it look and wear like new. Sealcoated pavements also are easier to clean and maintain. Because sealcoats fill the surface voids, they make the surface much smoother We recommend that you sealcoat your driveway every 2 years.
