Pavement Crack Repair with Hot Rubberized Filling
At Spalding Concrete Company, we repair cracks in pavement or asphalt with a hot rubberized crack filling. Hot rubberized filler generally lasts longer than cold fillers because it is more flexible. Hot filler expands and contracts with changes in temperature and is less likely to fail.
Seal and Repair Asphalt Cracks Before they Cause Bigger Problems
Cracks in asphalt are often caused by poor installation, the penetration of water or the frequent expansion and contraction that happens with temperature changes.
It’s important to seal cracks in asphalt, driveways and parking lots to stop water from penetrating between the asphalt and the asphalt sub-surface causing more extensive damage.
Routing of Cracks Prior to Sealing
Routing cracks before sealing them with a hot rubberized filling creates a uniform receptacle for the crack sealant. This allows the sealant to properly adhere to the side and bottom of the crack. We always recommend routing of cracks on commercial asphalt surfaces.
Cracks repaired with hot rubber filling typically last 3-5 years.
