There are many signs of asphalt pavement deterioration. Some are due to loading, drainage issues, sub-base issues, and alligator cracking due to age or bad drainage.
Potholes usually result due to an alligator crack not being repaired in a timely manner. Potholes grow larger as traffic continues to drive over the pothole, causing the vehicles to break the asphalt and create a larger hole. Potholes can also occur after rain or snow gets below the road surface and the moisture weakens the sub-base or freezing surface. That’s why more potholes appear during the early spring, as the freeze-thaw cycles weaken the asphalt pavement, especially in the Pasadena, MD area.
We repair potholes by removing large sections of the surrounding asphalt pavement and drying the area beneath. Once the surface is ready and the water is fully drained, we will apply an adhesive (tack) and add the asphalt in layers. Finally we add the pavement and compact it with a pavement roller.
Crack sealing is another common asphalt pavement repair service that we offer at Brothers Paving. It is a temporary solution highly recommended for preventing moisture, oil, chemicals and vegetation from getting into pavement cracks and other surface voids. Our expert paving contractors will clean and dry any pavement cracks and pour a crack sealant to preserve your asphalt pavement.
Brothers Paving also offers pavement rejuvenation to our Pasadena, MD area customers. This is a sealing process that softens the existing asphalt surface to heal minor cracking. The rejuvenation process preserves the asphalt pavement and restores its natural qualities, extending a pavement’s service life.
