Asphalt Crack Sealing Is Critical To Your Pavement Maintenance Plan
Asphalt crack sealing is among the most cost-effective ways for your business to extend the life of its parking lot. In most cases, it costs less than 10 percent of a complete asphalt replacement project.
Small cracks in asphalt don’t seem like a big deal, and often go unnoticed. However, when water gets into the cracks and heats and cools as the temperatures change, those small cracks become big problems in just a matter of months. When left untreated, small cracks lead to tire-damaging potholes and large cracks and buckled pavement that is a dangerous trip hazard for your customers and employees.
Most parking lots begin to display signs of asphalt failure two to three years after it has been installed because the proper maintenance has not been done to prevent that failure from occurring. By using rubberized asphalt crack sealing to stop small cracks from becoming serious problems, you can hold off those potholes and large cracks for a significantly long period of time.
Longevity & Durability
Asphalt is an incredibly durable material, used across millions of miles of highway, roads, parking lots and driveways across the country. That being said, it’s not indestructible, and eventually succumbs to the wear and tear of usage, weather and the passage of time.
At National Pavement, we ensure that our local partners use a high quality, rubberized asphalt crack sealant that is impenetrable and flexible. This material repels water which stops further cracking, and the flexible nature of the seal expands and contracts with the pavement as the weather changes.
When applying the asphalt crack sealant, our meticulous professionals are thorough in how they ensure the substance completely fills the crack so no water or debris can get through. Just as important, they also take care to spot even the smallest cracks because they know exactly how quickly small cracks become dangerous, damaging potholes.
