Wearing and Tearing
While sealcoating is an essential process, asphalt maintenance in Denver goes far beyond that. Crack filling and sealing are truly a necessity when it comes to the preventative care of your paved surfaces. Even smaller, hairline cracks can lead to a much larger problem if left untreated for long enough. Our crack sealing services may be the perfect preventative measure to keep your paved surfaces in pristine condition. Filling cracks with asphalt has been a practice for decades. It’s the simplest, easiest way to maintain the integrity of most roadways and surfaces. There are two types of filler that are easily placed on both asphalt and concrete surfaces. Cold pour crack fill seals gaps up to half an inch in width and will usually keep a crack sealed for a few years. Hot pour crack fill works on cracks up to an inch in width and will also keep maintain the seal for several.
When to Request Crack Sealing
Oftentimes, scrapes and scratches across your pavement can be purely cosmetic damages. They don’t look visually appealing but they otherwise don’t affect the integrity of the paved surface. These pose no real danger and can often be addressed by an overlay to give your pavement that brand-new look and feel. Unfortunately, cracks that have extended below the surface or are widening are definitely a cause for concern. Much in the same way a small crack on a windshield can spread across the entire length of the glass, the same thing can happen to your pavement. The more these cracks are allowed to grow and deepen, the greater the issue. It is necessary to schedule a crack sealing when you suspect that you’re not only dealing with surface cracks. By contacting the Denver Metro’s crack sealing professionals at ABC Asphalt, you’ll know that we will work to assess the extent of the damages and get them properly repaired.
