Asphalt Crack Repairs and Crack Sealing
Asphalt crack repairs are critical to extending the life of pavement. At CanWest, we use asphalt crack sealing as a first defense against pavement deterioration because it offers several important benefits.
Effective asphalt crack sealing keeps water from entering and weakening the base or sub-base. Asphalt crack repairs also help preserve the pavement adjacent to the cracks; prevent sand, stone and dirt from making its way into open cracks causing compressive stresses; and extend pavement life by minimizing crack growth.
Proper attention to cracks will prevent problems from spreading and double the life of the pavement. Asphalt crack repairs in the early stages of deterioration will pay big dividends later by delaying costly resurfacing.
