You left your house in the morning, already late to work, and are rummaging for your car keys when right in front of you, staring back at you; is a driveway pothole repair near me!
There are many instances that can create asphalt pothole.
Firstly, there may be a tree which somebody cut and left the stump behind.
Secondly, and a more probable reason is that the asphalt becomes weak and overtime part of it goes down.
Another reason is that sometimes contractors insert big rocks to cushion the base and leave a lot of space around.
And hence the fines can wash down and settle beneath the surface creating an asphalt pothole.
The good thing is, potholes fixed.
All you need is a proficient contractor with expertise in repairing such potholes.
If you are looking for pothole repairs near you, in and around New England.
Atlantic Asphalt Paving provides an excellent service to its esteemed customers.
The first step in repairing an asphalt pothole is to first identify what caused the asphalt to sink in, in the first place.
Atlantic asphalt uses the latest technology to excavate the hole and get to the root of the problem.
There can be many reasons for the asphalt to sink in, including a barrel used as drywall, the weight of passing vehicles, or water standing for a long time.
Once the problem identified, experts from Atlantic Asphalt Paving make sure that the excavated material does not use again.
Rather, we use a substance called a pack, which is made up of stone rock in an aggregate stone and is very hot so that there is no chance it will sink in that easily.
Next, we stomp the bottom of the pothole to make sure that there is no way the material would sink in again.
After this, we pour the pack and stomp it to make sure it’s an inch or so thick.
The key to a good base is compaction, hence rather than pouring out all the pack in one go.
We pour one bag, then make sure it is compact before pouring the next bag.
Once the hole filled, we now turn to the asphalt coating.
For this, we use a mixture made of stone mixed with asphalt binder; a glue-like substance.
Again, the trick is compaction and we make sure that the asphalt stomp enough to solidify it.
Once the asphalt coating done. The pothole is gone, and your driveway/parkway is as good as new!
Potholes can be a nuisance in the driveway/parkway as they pose an injury hazard to the people who may pass by it, especially children.
Also, vehicle tires also have a chance of sticking into these potholes.
Additionally, potholes diminish the beauty of your driveway/parkway which can hurt a company`s goodwill as well as the ambiance of your house.
Knowing these issues in great depth, Atlantic Asphalt Paving provides the best service in and around New England.
