Causes of Asphalt Cracks
Cracks in asphalt pavement can be caused by any number of factors. A poorly prepared driveway foundation, asphalt that is too thin or too thick, and asphalt that hasn’t been mixed properly, can all lead to unfortunate cracks. Mother Nature is also to blame, as freezing and thawing, tree roots, and shifting earth will all contribute to cracks that will eventually need to be repaired.

The key to extending driveway life is to fix small cracks before you’re faced with a complete reconstruction project. While some homeowners choose to make repairs on their own, our experience and specialized tools will guarantee a repair that is long-lasting and trouble-free.

Our Asphalt Crack Filling Process
Our crack filling process begins by preparing the damaged area to receive our high quality, commercial grade filler. As cracks become larger they begin to fill with debris, and a thorough cleaning guarantees a repair that won’t be degraded by sand, weeds, and other foreign material. Depending on the size of the crack, we may use a “hot” or “cold pour” to fill the effected area. In either case, the result is a sealed crack they will prevent water from seeping under the asphalt and compromising the driveway base.
