    Pavement Crack Repair: Crack Sealing

    Crack sealing is a method in which hot sealant is applied to working cracks in order to prevent water intrusion and further damage. Working cracks are both horizontal and vertical cracks that are greater than 0.1 inches; an example would be a transverse crack, which are usually the first to appear. Our crack sealant is rubberized and has the ability to seal the crack and stop water and debris from entering, while staying flexible with the pavement’s movement. This method is beneficial for active cracks that continue to extend in size and severity, the sealant protects the longevity of your pavement.

    Pavement Crack Repair: Crack Filling

    Crack filling is the placement of asphalt emulsion into non-working cracks in order to reduce water infiltration and reinforce the adjacent pavement. Non-working cracks are horizontal or vertical cracks that are less than 0.1 inches; examples include longitudinal, diagonal or alligator cracks. In contract to crack sealing, filling treats pavement that doesn’t show signs of significant movement.

    Unless you are in industry professional, it is hard to decide whether to fill or seal a crack. Our experienced team will carefully evaluate the type of crack, expected movement of the pavement and whether it is working or non-working.
