Asphalt Crack Sealing
Hot crack repair or crack sealing is the process of applying rubberized sealant to cracks in asphalt surfaces. This protects the asphalt from possible moisture damage. First, we ensure the surrounding surface and cracks are clean and free from debris. Next, we expertly seal the cracks using a traffic-ready, hot rubberized crack sealant. If edge and trim work are necessary, we carefully seal the areas by hand to ensure neat and clean edges. Check out our video to see the crack sealing process in action.

Crack sealants are rubberized and have the ability to seal the crack while staying flexible with the pavement’s movements, beneficial for active cracks that continue to extend in size and severity over time. Crack sealants stop water and debris from entering the crack, protecting the longevity of the pavement.
Choosing the Right Method of Crack Repair:
When deciding whether to fill or seal a crack, the best option is to speak to a professional. They will carefully evaluate the type of crack, expected movement of the pavement, and whether it is a working or non-working crack. Transverse cracks are usually the first to appear in pavement surfaces, but other types of cracks can develop at the same time.
