It is important to fill cracks as they appear in any asphalt pavement to stop or slow rainwater and melt runoff from entering the stone base beneath, which can cause costly deterioration, allowing the asphalt above it to crack further and fail completely.
Very similar to patching, but it isn’t as localized and can be done throughout the entire asphalt pavement. It should be done every 1 to 2 years to prevent more costly maintenance or replacement in the future. Crackfilling should always be followed by sealcoating to reinforce the newly-filled cracks, protect the asphalt surface, and create a clean finish to the area.
Guards the asphalt against the sun, ice, salt, oils, and other chemicals that shorten the life of your pavement. It also gives a fresh new black appearance to your pavement. Sealcoating should be done every 2 to 3 years to ensure the longevity of your pavement, lower repair costs, and put off replacement.
