Cracked, damaged and failing areas forming in the Asphalt pavement will require repair. Typical causes of failing areas can occur due to a-number of factors including pavement age, poor design, type of use, lack of maintenance, drainage and sometimes be symptomatic of deeper underlying issues. Regardless of the cause however, neglect of Asphalt Repairs can significantly impact on the overall life of a pavement surface and may result in more extensive repairs and additional cost.
Asphalt repair and routine maintenance can assist, not only by extending your pavement life, but also reducing the risk of further failures when left exposed to the elements and traffic. In addition, and importantly repairs will reduce the risk of pedestrian injury and motor vehicle damage.
Crack & Joint Sealing Repair
Carrying out crack & joint sealing repairs is an important pavement maintenance strategy that can be utilised to extend the life of a pavement surface. A crack sealant is designed to penetrate the crack, act as a flexible filler, and assist with the prevention of water ingression. Application of a crack or joint sealant can prevent recurrence and can be used on its own, following asphalt repairs or prior to asphalt resurfacing. A cost effective and fast solution when carried out by an experienced Asphalt Contractor.
Carrying out Asphalt repairs to pavement failures commonly identified as potholes and if left, progressing to larger damaged surface areas is a necessary maintenance strategy. Remedial repairs to localised failures will prolong further damage and lengthen the life of the pavement. A cost effective and fast solution when carried out by an experienced Asphalt Contractor.
Worthy of noting, prioritising frequent and thorough inspections of the Asphalt pavement will identify potential issues that may require attention. In most circumstances, crack sealing and asphalt repairs can be carried out within a matter of hours, with minimal disruption and trafficable almost immediately.
