Crack Repair that Prevents Damage
Asphalt cracks are unsightly and uninviting – but that’s not the only reason they’re a problem. Cracks also threaten the overall strength of your pavement, leading to severe structural issues and expense over the long term.
Cracks allow water to penetrate your pavement and seep into the underlying base layers, where they can create voids that turn into potholes and eventually destroy your asphalt’s foundation.
The good news is that you can prevent this minor repair issue from becoming a major one. Ace’s cost-effective crack-filling services start by cleaning the dust and debris from the crack using a high-pressure stream of air. Then we seal the crack using a hot-applied, polymer-based material. The extreme heat during application causes the sides of the asphalt in the crack to melt and form a much stronger bond with the crack sealer upon cooling. Due to its high elasticity, our crack sealer expands and contracts with the thermal movements of the crack. Also, because of its high melting point, it will not track or pick up with traffic.
Before we seal your unwanted pavement cracks, we will sweep the asphalt surface to remove any dust and debris. During this time, the crack fill material is heated to just the right temperature in a special reservoir on site. When your surface is ready, the material is poured into crack fill pots and applied to the required areas. The extreme heat during application causes the sides of the asphalt in the crack to melt and form a much stronger bond with the crack fill upon cooling.
+ Benefits (Click to expand)
- Watertight Protection: Our crack fill prevents further deterioration of the ground beneath your pavement by blocking damaging surface moisture.
- Hot is Better: Our hot seal application allows for better adhesion to the sides of the crack compared to a cold seal treatment.
- More Flexible: Our crack fill material is highly elastic, allowing the seal to expand and contract with the thermal movement of the crack.
- No Mess: Our crack fill material will not track or pick up with traffic.
