Asphalt cracks usually occur after a pavement undergoes the freeze and thaw cycle multiple times. This cycle happens when cold temperatures occur, which causes the asphalt to shift and move. The shifting then stresses the asphalt, which then negatively reacts when the weather starts to warm. It can also occur from extreme temperatures that cause asphalt to shrink and crack. If there is an unstable subgrade, that will also cause the asphalt surface to crack. Whatever caused your asphalt to crack, contact Onsite Asphalt to address the issue.

WHY IS crack sealing IMPORTANT?

Cracks in pavement allow moisture to penetrate the surface which causes pavement failure. Neglecting to seal cracks results in more cracking, potholes, and eventually a major asphalt breakdown. To minimize water seeping into the pavement sub base, crack sealing with a hot rubberized sealant is required, reducing future pavement problems.
