Services: Crack Filling

Crack filling is necessary when doing both preventative maintenance and pavement repair. When cracks let in water to the pavement base, it becomes unstable, and will deteriorate. If these carcks can be identified and filled before they grow large, you will be able to avoid the cost of bigger problems such as potholes or permanent pavement damage. This can require replacement. If these cracks are left unrepaied they will grow in size, causing pavement to prematurely fail. \We recommend annual inspections in the spring to repair any cracks that have devolped over the winter, only this can keep your pavement in good condition.

NOTE: If your pavement has alligator cracks, these require complete pavement reconstruction.

A crack before any repairs

We use a powerbroom to clean the debris from the crack.

The crack has been cleaned out

A special acrylic-based material is applied into the crack itself

A squeegee is pulled across the top,
to press the material into the crack.

A second application is sometimes necessary,
as the crack filling material may settle.

A closer look at the finished fill.

The crack may remain visible after the repair, and a 'band' may be present under the sealcoat. This is a sealed driveway with crack filling present. Note that some driveways will show this banding more than others, based on the driveway texture, previous sealcoats, and the angle this filling is viewed at. Even the time of day (with the sun's presence) will have an impact on whether or not you can easily see the fill.
