While asphalt is a long-lasting and durable surface, occasional maintenance is needed in order to ensure your driveway, sidewalk, patio or other asphalt feature lasts for decades. Cracks and other damage may look small, but they will allow water to seep into the subbase. When combined with the freezing and thawing cycles you’ll find in Ontario’s harsh winters, you get the recipe for a potentially damaging situation.
Fortunately, asphalt crack sealing is a simple and cost-effective way to ensure that your asphalt lasts as long as possible. One of the major benefits of asphalt is how simple it is to repair. Simple patches and sealing can do wonders, rather than the more complex maintenance required to repair a concrete drive.
By sealing the cracks in your asphalt, you’re ensuring that water won’t penetrate into the base of your asphalt, preventing larger cracks, potholes and heaving from forming later. It’s better than simply filling them in; fillers don’t expand and contract with your asphalt, leaving it prone to damage. Sealing the cracks involves flexible, rubberized asphalt which will bond to the crack walls, moving with the pavement and resulting in a more solid protective surface.
