We’ve answered some of the most popular questions about asphalt repair here. Call us if you want to fix your asphalt or if you have any other questions.
What are some parts of road maintenance?
You can get more out of your investment in pavement if you take care of it regularly and make it last longer. Bulldog Paving Ltd. can set up a plan for you to take care of your asphalt.
Most asphalt upkeep is about dealing with water. The first step is to seal coat your tarmac 90 days after it was put down and make sure the seal coat stays in good shape by applying it regularly.
Every three to five years, you should re-seal coat your asphalt. Keeping your seal coat new and strong will keep water out and stop oxidation. That means your asphalt won’t break as much. It will also last longer and look better.
Repairing cracks or holes in your asphalt as soon as possible is another important part of asphalt care. If you don’t fix the damage to your road, it could get worse. The cracks and holes will let water in. When it gets colder, that water will freeze and hurt your asphalt even more.
As soon as you notice holes or cracks in your asphalt, fix them and seal them so they don’t get worse.
Even if you do good upkeep, your asphalt will crack at least a little because of things in nature.
How can a crack in asphalt be fixed?
Crack fill is what you use to fix a crack in your asphalt. A crack seal is a polymer barrier that is made of rubber. As part of Bulldog’s crack sealing service, our sidewalk experts pour hot liquid sealant into the cracks in your concrete. It fills the cracks, then hardens and dries to make a seal that keeps water out.
You’ve probably seen the black lines of crack seals everywhere in parking lots.
How do you fix asphalt that is coming apart?
You can fix asphalt that is breaking up by repaving it. With an asphalt patch, you can fix an area of your tarmac that is crumbling. If your whole driveway is falling apart, you may need to pave it all over again.
How do you fix asphalt that is yellow and worn?
Asphalt that has faded isn’t just a matter of looks. It means that your asphalt has become old and worn. Most of the time, asphalt that has faded needs a new seal coat and sometimes more cleaning.
Bulldog Paving Ltd. can fix your paved concrete and finish it again. Our slurry seal service is a great way to bring your old asphalt back to life. Slurry seal doesn’t just cover your old road again. It makes a new surface and a seal coat at the same time.
Putting a slurry coat on top of your asphalt will not only fix it again, but it will also give it a new look.
Can new asphalt be put on top of old asphalt?
Yes. Putting new asphalt on top of old asphalt is a popular way to fix asphalt. It’s also called resurfacing or an asphalt patch.
Bulldog Paving Ltd. can resurface your driveway or parking lot with a new layer of asphalt to make it look as smooth as it did before.
What is it to fill cracks in asphalt?
Filling cracks in asphalt is pretty much the same as closing cracks in asphalt. By injecting a special rubberized polymer into a crack in asphalt, we can shut it off and stop water from getting in.
Filling in cracks in your asphalt can slow down aging and make your pavement last longer.
What are the parts of asphalt filler?
Asphalt filler is made of a material that has been made rubbery. When it’s hot, it’s basically plastic that has melted. To get it into the cracks in the asphalt, we use special tools. It seeps into every part of the crack, then cools and gets hard. Now that the space is full of flexible plastic, water can’t get through the crack.
If water doesn’t get into your asphalt, Mother Nature will hurt it less and it will last longer.
