Does Your Pavement Have A Crack-Seal Need?
Crack seal is intended as both a corrective and preventative maintenance measure.
Water is the most-destructive element to pavements. If cracks in asphalt are allowed to remain unsealed for even short periods of time, water can easily penetrate and reach under the pavement. This results in further cracking. Problematic deterioration of the sub-base is a true concern and takes its toll, monetarily, down the road (no pun, intended).
Sealing pavement cracks to prevent water intrusion will extend the life or your driveway, roadway or parking lot by three to five years.
Daley’s Superior Asphalt Will Get the Job Done Right!
Before the application of any sealant, cracks are carefully examined to determine the type of cracking and the most suitable material to be used.
Cracks are thoroughly cleaned and dried to guarantee optimized adhesion between the sealant and the pavement surface.
Scrutinized cleaning and drying is vitally important since most failures occur as a result of loss of adhesion. High pressure air-blasting removes dust, debris or loose pavement fragments. Then, sealant is embedded into cracks to reinforce the adjacent pavement.
- The US DOT is quick to point out that sealing is better than filling since sealing lasts longer and costs less.
- It’s important to know that fillers do not expand or contract. Sealing the cracks with flexible rubberized asphalt that bonds to the cracks’ walls will move with the pavement and prevent water intrusion.
The benefits become apparent in three to five years when one readily sees that the sealed pavement has not deteriorated.
The best candidates for crack sealing are newer pavements with newly formed cracks. If the pavement shows signs of:
- ‘Alligator’ cracking
- High-density multiple cracking
- Poor sub-base drainage or structural damage
Then crack sealing will not solve the problem. The moral of story: save money, time and frustration by addressing crack issues, early.
