Holscher Sealcoating has been perfecting the asphalt repair process in Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Massachusetts for over 20 years. Scroll down to learn more about Asphalt, the repair process, and why it's important to do on a regular basis.
Asphalt is a dark, black, and sticky material that is used to pave roads, parking lots, and other surfaces. It is made from a mixture of sand, gravel, and bitumen, which is a thick, sticky substance that is made from petroleum. Asphalt is a durable and long-lasting material that can withstand heavy traffic and weather conditions. It is also relatively inexpensive, which makes it a popular choice for paving surfaces.
Asphalt repair is important because it can extend the life of your asphalt surface, improve safety, and reduce maintenance costs.
During this step, we look for any cracks, potholes, or other damage. We will remove any loose debris to see the extent of the damage. This gives us a proper assessment to perform the repairs needed.
Cleaning the surface thoroughly is one of the most important steps. Using a commercial pressure washer, we remove all dirt, debris, and oil from the asphalt surface. This will help the repair materials adhere to the asphalt completely.
Using crack filler or pothole patches, we repair any cracks or potholes in the asphalt. This ensures the foundation of the asphalt is solid before we apply the sealcoating.
We give ample time for all our repairs to cure and dry completely. Slacking on this step will lead to inevitable damage and repairs down the road.
We use a high-grade commercial sealcoating to make sure the entire asphalt surface is sealed from the elements. This step is extremely important because it ensures water doesn't seep into the asphalt below. When water seeps into asphalt cracks, it can expand and contract and cause severe damage to an asphalt surface.
The cost of asphalt repair depends on the size and extent of the damage, as well as the materials and labor costs necessary to get the job done effectively and done right the first time.
