What is Crack Sealing?
Crack sealing is the process of pouring a hot rubberized tar into isolated cracks in the asphalt pavement to prevent water from penetrating the asphalt base.
Benefits of Crack Sealing
- Protects the Base – Effective crack sealing keeps water from entering and weakening the base of the asphalt. This weakness can result in loss of structural support, which can result in additional cracking and pavement failure.
- Extends Pavement Life – Properly sealed cracks will significantly extend the life of the asphalt. Treating the problem while it is still small will pay big dividends later by delaying costly resurfacing.
