Living in the northeast, we are blessed and cursed with the fact that we experience all four seasons in full affect. The weather is brutal on your driveways and parking lots, causing cracks that will continue to spread and potholes that will only get bigger unless you take action and fix them. That is exactly what we do, we repair and improve the look and quality of your blacktop. When we experience repetitive weather like rain or snow, it gets into small cracks in the asphalt. If the asphalt has not been sealed by new construction, or some sort of pavement preservation technique, there are likely cracks in the roadway. As water penetrates the asphalt, water enters the base material under the asphalt. This weakens the asphalt and reduces the load capacity of the underlayer. This in turn causes depressions and a weak spot in the asphalt.. As traffic drives over the weakened area, the asphalt begins to crack and a pothole is formed. This cycle will continue to happen until something is done about the cracks in the asphalt. Waiting to fix this problem can become very costly and it is better to take control and fix these weak areas as soon as possible to save you future costs
