Asphalt driveways can provide a sharp, sleek look that is inviting to visitors. However, after a few years pass, that blacktop no longer looks brand new. As asphalt expands and contracts with changing weather and temperatures, cracks may appear in your pavement.
See any cracks like the ones below appearing in YOUR asphalt?
First you will get fine hairline cracks; these are usually not seen with the naked eye, but are prevalent in pavement. Then, as the asphalt continues to crumble, the hairline cracks spread and deepen. As water or ice gets into the cracks, asphalt will erode further. If you do not fix the asphalt at this point, these cracks will become larger cracks, potholes or ruts — which are dangerous and not aesthetically pleasing.
Hot asphalt crack filling is the most effective approach when repairing cracks in your blacktop. It does well in temperature extremes and will far outlast other varieties of crack sealer. Hot asphalt crack filling will prevent water from seeping through the pavement and can extend the life of your asphalt from three to five years. When water is kept out of the pavement, asphalt deterioration slows down considerably.
