Asphalt Crack Filling
As a business owner, you have plenty to worry about. As meaningless as it may seem in the grand scheme of things, it’s important to routinely inspect your parking lot for signs of cracking. Even minor cracks have the potential to become major problems. Cracks allow water to penetrate the base layers and weaken your asphalt’s foundation. As cracks increase in size, they pave the way for greater damage such as rutting, heaving, and potholes.
Reduce your risk of costly repairs in the future when you take advantage of Baughman Magic Seal’s Asphalt Crack Filling services.
Why do cracks form?
Cracks can form for several reasons:
• Poor foundation
• Asphalt is too thick or thin
• Asphalt is improperly mixed
• Environmental factors: ground shifts, overgrown vegetation, freeze/thaw cycle
• Extremely heavy vehicle traffic
The width and depth of cracks can vary from shallow to very deep, and the method of filling them varies to accommodate these change.
What does asphalt crack filling do?
As we mentioned, cracks create entrances for water to penetrate the surface of your parking lot. Water, the most destructive element for your pavement, threatens the structural integrity of pavement and increases your risk of erosion, depressions, and rapid deterioration. Asphalt crack filling is a form of preventative maintenance that provides a resilient, flexible, and expandable seal to prevent moisture from breaching the surface layer. However, depending how widespread the damage is, it may not be enough to restore your asphalt. At that point, considering re-surfacing your parking lot or driveway.
