Moisture intrusion is the leading cause of pavement deterioration. When left alone and when cracks are not repaired, potholes become evident and a safety problem. Potholes represent an annoyance to vehicle traffic and a serious tripping hazard to pedestrians.
To avoid potential liability, potholes should be filled immediately upon discovery with either cold patch materials or hot mix material.
Filling potholes is a relatively easy and inexpensive process.
Cracks in your pavement along with pot holes and raveling not only reduce the value of your property and are un-appealing, they are also a safety issue and cause problems for visitors. With L & L Industries' large network of sealcoating and asphalt maintenance contractors, a solution to unsightly pavement can be had.
Pavement deterioration occurs when melted snow or rainwater seep through cracks in the pavement and can’t get absorbed into the frozen ground. When the water freezes, it expands and can “pop” or weaken the asphalt. The weight of autos rolling over the weakened pavement causes chunks to break away.
Severely damaged pavement requires patching using either Infrared Patching techniques, Full-Depth asphalt repair, or GatorPave.
Infrared Patching involves heating up and re-melting the damaged asphalt, raking and then compacting the asphalt to produce a “like new” asphalt patch area.
Full-Depth Asphalt Repair involves cutting out and removing the damaged asphalt, repairing the base and replacing with fresh hot mix asphalt. Full-depth asphalt repair typically provides better long-term results.
