Continual exposure to sun and rain is pavement’s greatest enemy. Oxidation from the sun causes shrinkage and separation of the asphalt surface. Once that happens, rainwater will penetrate the pavement subsurface and soften it. Without prompt attention, areas around the pavement will also begin to fail. As a result of increased oxidation, the main crack will only get larger. The result: cracks, potholes, and costly repairs.
Crack sealing from Oden & Doucette will prevent deterioration of the subbase pavement from infiltration of water and debris. The thorough cleaning of affected areas and the application of crack sealant will prevent further erosion of the surface and damage to the structural support of the pavement. Crack sealing material is designed to expand and shrink allowing for year-round performance. By sealing cracks early you can extend the life of your pavement considerably and prevent more costly repairs.
