Pavement Crack Repair with Hot Rubberized Filling
We repair cracks in pavement or asphalt with hot rubberized crack filling. Hot rubberized filler will typically last longer than cold fillers because of it’s superior flexibility. Hot filler expands and contracts with changes in temperature and is, therefore, less likely to fail.
Seal and Repair Asphalt Cracks Before they Create Bigger Problems
Cracks in asphalt are generally caused by poor installation, the penetration of water or the frequent expansion and contraction caused by temperature changes.
It is important to seal cracks in asphalt, parking lots and driveways to prevent water from penetrating between the asphalt and the asphalt sub-surface which can cause more extensive damage.
Routing of Cracks Prior to Sealing
Routing cracks ahead of sealing them with hot rubberized filling creates a uniform receptacle for the crack sealant. This makes it possible for the sealant to correctly adhere to the side and bottom of the crack. Spalding Concrete always recommends routing of cracks on commercial asphalt surfaces.
Cracks repaired with hot rubber filling generally last 3-5 years.
