Exit 7 Sealcoating Asphalt Pothole Repair Trenton NJ

    Commercial & Residential Pothole Repair

    Keeping your parking lot or driveway in good condition is important for your vehicle, your businesses’ reputation, curb appeal and the rest of your asphalt. Potholes or cracks in your asphalt leave the surrounding area vulnerable to even more, very costly damage. Potholes occur when water seeps into the pavement through unsealed or improperly sealed cracks. When that water freezes, it expands, enlarges and forms a crack under the surface. Eventually, the ice under the pavement melts and a void is left causing the surrounding pavement to fall into the void and form a pothole. Exit 7 Sealcoating provides pothole repair for New Jersey and Pennsylvania residential or commercial driveways and/or parking lots that have both severe and minimal damage.

    Pothole Repair & Paving

    Asphalt patching is the processing of filling potholes in the asphalt pavement. Quick repair of potholes and surrounding pavement disintegration helps control deterioration and expensive repairs down the line. Without patching in a timely manner, water can enter the subgrade and cause more serious pavement failure. Full-depth or deep patch is a permanent pothole repair method, while a thin surface patch is temporary. Full-depth patching is the removal of the entire pavement surface, regardless of the thickness. Deep patching is the removal of 4 inches or more of the pavement surface. Full depth patching applies to either asphalt or concrete, but deep patching applies only to asphalt pavements. Materials for pavement patching include hot mix asphalt, asphalt emulsion mixes, stockpile patching mixes and propriety mixes with blends of aggregate and modified binders.

    What Causes Parking Lot Potholes?

    Business owners and property managers will have to eventually deal with potholes as part of parking lot maintenance. Potholes are caused by two main factors: water and high traffic. The winter and spring months are when we see the highest increase in new pothole formations, because of storms and freezing/refreezing ice. When it rains and snows in the cold winter months, water seeps into cracks & crevices of the pavement. The water freezes as the temperatures drop and expands, which forces the pavement to rise. The pavement is in a vulnerable stage; allowing potholes to form, because it is no longer able to support the weight it needs to and begins to sink.

    You will not see the effects of this freeze-thaw cycle immediately; the pavement continues to weaken and eventually a shallow divot forms underneath the surface and the top layer of pavement will break.
