Crack Sealing in Driveways
Asphalt is a durable material for condominium or residential driveways. Driveways do receive a lot of wear and tear, and over time cracks may develop that can compromise the durability of the terrain. A cracked asphalt driveway can be repaired by carefully sealing the cracks to prevent water from weakening the structure of the asphalt and slow down the aging of the driveway. This can extend the life of the driveway by up to twice as long. Condo owners, home owners association, schools & universities, nonprofit organizations, and other organizations can benefit from asphalt driveway repair.
If you have just one or two cracks, you may be able to handle the repair on your own by cleaning out the cracks using a screwdriver or a steel brush and patching them with asphalt crack sealer. Driveways with multiple cracks are best handled by professionals who has the right equipment and can best evaluate each crack to get the right fix. Done improperly, crack sealing leads to more cracking. With a driveway that has many cracks, professional pavement repair companies can use a crack cleaning machine to prepare the asphalt for sealing, then use hot asphalt mix to patch up the pavement. You will not be able to use the driveway until the seal sets up. However, you will notice an immediate improvement in the drivability of the surface.
