While asphalt pavement is stronger and more durable than concrete, it is not immune to cracks, raveling, and potholes. If you notice a small area of deterioration on your driveway, asphalt patching can repair it without having to repave the whole thing.

How the Experts Ensure Long-Lasting Asphalt Patching

Here’s how we ensure long-lasting asphalt patching:

  • Thorough Assessment – When asphalt deteriorates, it’s important to understand why. We conduct a thorough evaluation of the crack or hole to determine what’s causing it and how we can prevent it. This may involve removing some of the asphalt around the damaged area to address the underlying issues. This helps ensure our asphalt patching will last.
  • Only the Best Materials – Driveways undergo a lot of use, which is why quality materials are a must. A quick fix asphalt patching won’t last long if the right materials aren’t utilized. We only use quality patching compounds.
  • Expert Compaction Techniques – A key component of asphalt patching is compaction. The patching materials must be properly compacted to adhere to the surrounding asphalt and seal up with the rest of the driveway. Our expert team knows how important this step is, which is why our asphalt patches last.
  • Follow Up – When done right, asphalt patching can be a long-lasting repair to your driveway that saves you from costly replacements. However, the driveway must be properly maintained to prevent further deterioration. Routinely sealcoating your driveway every few years will help the asphalt patching stay compacted and protected.
