CRACK FILLING

Whenever asphalt begins to crack, we recommend you fill or seal
those cracks as soon as possible to help extend the life of your driveway.

PREVENTING MORE COSTLY ASPHALT ISSUES WITH CRACK FILLING

Cold applied crack filling is typically performed on parking lots and driveways, but can also provide effective results on roads and streets. Cold applied crack fillers typically consist of a clay-filled, polymer-modified asphalt emulsion liquid that flows into cracks at ambient temperatures.

Any problems with the sub base below eventually leads to problems with the asphalt on top. Depending on the circumstances, we use two different products for crack filling. For smaller cracks on a residential driveway we typically use a trowel grade crack filler that is fortified with mineral fillers and fibers that interlock when cured.

CRACK SEALING, A MORE DURABLE SOLUTION

There are many factors to consider when choosing to fill the cracks or to seal the cracks. For any larger, longitudinal cracks that demand a more durable product, we use a hot rubberized crack sealant. When properly melted and applied it forms a resilient crack sealant with superior lasting power!

Hot pour crack filling and sealing is generally done on roads and highways and in many cases, on parking lots. Hot pour offers the advantage of quick set times (10 minutes or less). Once the hot pour material cools you can drive on it.

Cracked asphalt is not only a giant eyesore, but if left untreated for years, will become more costlier to repair, or eventually replace. Getting an early start on any cracks that appear can not only save you from future problems, such as potholes or larger cracking. Bergen County Sealcoating offers crack repairs no matter how small or severe the cracking is.

Repairing smaller cracks through crack filling early on is a much simpler solution, and lowers the price you have to pay when repairing any larger asphalt issues, such as potholes or other serious problems.

A scheduled program of pavement maintenance that includes sealcoating and crack filling will more than double the life cycle of your asphalt pavement and provide maximum curb appeal. Sealcoating and crack filling is a fraction of the cost of repairing or replacing asphalt pavement. The key to effective crack filling and sealing is to repair and fill the cracks while they are small, as crack filling inhibits crack growth and keeps new cracks from forming.

Left unfilled, cracks will allow rain and moisture to flow through pavement and erode base materials ultimately resulting in potholes and pavement failure. Filling cracks with crack filler helps prevent rain and moisture from flowing through the pavement and causing erosion or failure. By stopping the entrance of water, the rate of deterioration of the pavement is significantly slowed. Crack sealing also prevents the loss of aggregate from the edges of the crack.

That’s why Bergen County Sealcoating offers inexpensive, reliable, long lasting repairs on any size asphalt, whether it be commercial or residential. We will provide you with a durable parking pad that can withstand harsh weather while maintaining it’s strength and integrity, with you not having to worry about cracking for years to come.
