Crack filling…does it really work?

Crack filling...does it really work?Although asphalt is sturdy, it can crack. Fortunately, it is rarely necessary to install entirely new paving when openings occur. Frequently, asphalt cracks can be cost-effectively repaired by filling and sealing the ruptures. However, customers who have cracked paving want to ensure that filling their asphalt cracks will increase the life of their paving.

Crack filling…does it really work?

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) collaborated to investigate whether crack repair extends the usability of asphalt. Researchers evaluated repaired surfaces before confirming that filling and sealing the breakage can prolong the life of paving.

In order to ensure favorable repair results, it is essential to use a skilled contractor who has experience inspecting damaged asphalt and identifying the best way to repair it. Numerous factors impact the type of material a contractor will use to fill the crack and the repair method.
