Repairing cracks in your driveway or parking lot is essential for proper maintenance of your asphalt. Cracks in asphalt cause moisture to build up beneath the surface causing severe damage during the thawing and freezing cycles by widening and expanding.
Given the freeze/thaw cycles we have in New England, the soils beneath can move and expand to levels where even the best crack fillers can fail to some degree. Nonetheless, filling cracks is essential and undoubtedly stems the tide of deterioration and is an important part of proper preparation. Sealing, however, will outlive crack filling.
In addition, it is important to note that finer surface cracks are often difficult to eliminate. Most often these cracks are not doing any harm to the driveway. Our main focus is on structural cracks that are doing harm to the driveway. These type of cracks are always filled.
The team at Weston Home Sealcoating ensures that all necessary prep work such as debris removal and brushing are completed prior to filling cracks. We do this in combination with utilizing the most effective materials in the industry to guarantee the best possible result when filling a crack in your asphalt.
