We learn as kids that we should regularly take care of our teeth. Daily cleaning and regular check-ups, catch and fix cavities when they are small. Done regularly and you can probably go a long way in life without expensive and major repairs or tooth replacement. Well paved surfaces, be they of concrete or asphalt, are somewhat the same. Cleaning regularly and finding and fixing cracks while they are still small can significantly extend the life of your parking lot or driveway.
You can extend the life of your asphalt parking lot or pavement and in some cases, you can double the surface life expectancy by sealing asphalt cracks promptly. Burnaby Blacktop’s professional and skilled crews are experts in identifying problem areas and determining how best to fix them before they lead to expensive and occasionally irreparable damage. We use only the finest sealing materials and repair equipment to help ensure your total satisfaction.
To the human eye, a new layer of shiny blacktop or smooth cement appears watertight and well-sealed. Water molecules, however, are amazing at finding even the smallest cracks. Moisture that penetrates into these small cracks generally ends up running off via the installed drainage, but sometimes small pools form under the pavement layer, or even in the crack, and sometimes the water freezes, which of course causes it to expand and push the crack open wider, allowing in even more moisture.
Just like your teeth, a small crack or hole if not treated early can become a large, painful, and expensive cavity; or in the case of your parking lot or driveway, a dangerous and unsightly pothole leading to a more significant parking lot repair.
Effective crack sealing starts by properly cleaning out the cracks of dirt, leaves and other junk that inevitably gets into the crack. Once clean, a hot-apply, rubberized crack filler is inserted into the exposed cracks. Hot filler is poured into the cracks and seeps in everywhere to fill and seal the crack. The fit and finish is superior to stuffing in cold crack filler materials, and is thus our preferred method. When cool and hardened inside the crack, an excellent seal is formed preventing further moisture penetration.
