How do potholes form in asphalt?
Water is the most common cause of asphalt damage, as it can soak into tiny open spaces within the asphalt and gravel base, freeze, and cause asphalt binders to separate from the aggregates inside. If water pools in one spot long enough, it can repeatedly break up the pavement, leading to a deep hole called a pothole. Vehicles driving over weakened asphalt can further break it up until the entire structure is compromised.
Our Pothole Repair Process
The professionals have developed proven methods for completely fixing potholes and restoring asphalt pavement. First, the pothole has to be thoroughly cleaned and all debris removed. Often, broken asphalt can be recycled in other pavement projects. Next, paving contractors fill the hole with a filler product specially mixed with hot asphalt binders, aggregates like sand, and flexible polymers. This mixture is compacted and allowed to cure, sealing the pothole off from moisture while allowing for the asphalt to expand and contract with temperature and stress.
How Pothole Repairs Save You Money
When asphalt has broken down enough to form a pothole, it can be an indication that other problems will soon follow and your pavement is at the end of its life. Repairing your damaged asphalt in a timely manner can save property owners money because it rehabilitates failing pavement and prevents further damage.
