Asphalt Repairs

The main purpose of a crack treatment is to seal the crack in order to prevent moisture from penetrating the base thereby preventing the eroding of the asphalt. The secondary purpose is to prevent the loss of aggregate from the edges of the cracks. Moisture entering the crack can lead to accelerated weakness and other pavement damage.

RDS Crack maintenance incorporates many treatment options ranging from the basic maintenance application of crack sealing to more drastic measure of overlaying the pavement. By using state-of-the-art equipment to install hot applied joint sealants. Crack Filling seals these cracks shut. The earlier this function can be completed (cracks can be treated from early spring into late fall), the more successful it will be in minimizing moisture penetration and damage.

Asphalt Crack Facts

  • Small asphalt cracks allow moisture into asphalt.
  • Water expands and contracts with temperature causing larger cracks.
  • Larger cracks allow more water penetration to weaken base.
  • Weaknesses in base accelerate asphalt failure.
  • Small cracks always become big cracks.
  • Big cracks soon become potholes.
  • Cracks ¼” and larger can be sealed with
    specially formulated hot rubber sealant.

Benefits Of Crack Sealing

Saves You Money

For pennies on the dollar, you can avoid costly asphalt replacement with crack sealing performed by professionals. The cost of replacement can be 20 – 30 times more expensive than a single maintenance procedure.

Prolongs Pavement Life

Routine Maintenance (proper crack sealing and sealcoating) can double the life of your asphalt. Crack sealing is the SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT STEP you can take to prolong the life of your asphalt.

Slows Oxidation

Left untreated, cracks allow water into and beneath the base which leads to pavement failure. Water is the number one enemy of asphalt.

Prevents Water Penetration

Weather-proofing agents repel water – the number one enemy of asphalt. Asphalt is naturally porous; left unsealed, water will pentrate through the pores and cracks and disturb the base – eventually leading to failure of the pavement.

Improves Appearance

First impressions of your home or place of business are greatly enhanced with a deep, rich, satiny black finish.
