Can you repair asphalt potholes?

Yes you can repair asphalt potholes however, It is recommended that potholes are repaired by resurfacing as filling a pothole will only provide a short term remedy, allowing the surrounding areas to weaken over time and in turn, will result in more repair work. Filling the potholes can also cause ponding and puddles due to the change in height levels in the affected area and will make it more difficult to resurface later on.

Why does asphalt crack?

There are many reasons why asphalt cracks, some of these reasons include aging, traffic loading, incorrect pavement thickness, environmental influences, poor installation, sub-base instability, changing temperatures, incorrect base thickness and improper maintenance. If you are noticing cracking in your asphalt, it is important to have an expert access the cause of the cracking before resurfacing.

What maintenance does asphalt require?

The maintenance required on your asphalt surface will be dependent on the type of asphalt used in the initial installation. It is recommended to have your asphalt inspected yearly where cracks can be filled when they first appear and good practice to apply a seal coat to the asphalt every 2 -3 years.

My asphalt is cracking, can this be repaired?

Yes, you can repair cracks in your asphalt surface. Small, Shallow cracks can be repaired with a cold pour crack fill if the cracks are less than 1cm wide. Cold pour crack filler is made using acrylic and water based products and is poured into the cracks to seal them and create a joint.

On large scale jobs, such as car parks, roads, racetracks and runways a hot pour crack fill is used to repair any cracks in the asphalt surface. Hot pour crack filler is rubber based and applied with a 2-in-1 melter applicator and this method will generally last longer than the cold pour method.

Is it cheaper to repair asphalt or replace it?

It is better to replace asphalt and will be cheaper in the long term. Repairing asphalt will only provide a short term remedy, because surrounding areas will weaken and it will result in more repair work. Pothole repair also may cause ponding and puddles due to the change in height levels in the affected area and will make it more difficult to resurface later on.
