What is Asphalt Patch Repair?

Patching services are a type of pavement repair that involves repairing or replacing damaged or deteriorated sections of asphalt pavement. This service can fix potholes, cracks, and other types of damage that can occur over time due to heavy traffic, weather conditions, or other factors. Properly performed patching can help extend the life of a pavement surface and improve safety for drivers and pedestrians.

The Patching Process

Here are the steps typically involved in asphalt patching:

Cleaning: The damaged area is thoroughly cleaned to remove any debris, loose aggregate, or other material that might impede the repair process.

Preparation: The edges of the damaged area are carefully cut to create a clean, straight edge that will allow the new pavement to bond correctly.

Adding binder: A layer of asphalt binder is applied to the bottom of the repair area to help the new pavement adhere to the old surface.

Patching: Hot mix asphalt is added to the repair area, filling it to the appropriate level.

Compaction: A compactor compresses and smooths the new material, ensuring it is tightly packed and level with the surrounding pavement.

Finishing: The repaired area is typically sealed a sealcoating to protect it from water damage and to give it a uniform appearance.

It’s important to note that some repairs may require additional steps, such as installing a base layer or using special equipment. Therefore, it’s always best to consult a professional asphalt contractor to determine the best approach for your needs.
