Asphalt crack



Asphalt repairs are critical in extending the life of your pavement. At CanWest, we use a variety of techniques for defense against asphalt pavement deterioration.


As one of Alberta’s leading concrete and asphalt contractor, CanWest can help you with your asphalt repairs and asphalt patching.Our skilled team of operators can make the asphalt repairs necessary to extend the life of your asphalt pavement. Our crews can repair small potholes and tackle larger asphalt projects like parking lots  and roads with little disruption to your regular business operations.


Can your asphalt be patched, crack filled or sealed? Does it need to be resurfaced? Do you need to completely redo your asphalt project?

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. 


pothole repairs

Potholes occur when water seeps into the pavement through unsealed or improperly sealed cracks. The water freezes, expanding the crack. When the ice under the pavement melts, a void is left and surrounding pavement falls into the void and forms a pothole. 


Asphalt Sealing

Asphalt sealing is used to fill extremely shallow cracks and act as a protective layer to existing asphalt pavement. 


Asphalt resurfacing

Instead of replacing or repairing asphalt pavement, another option is asphalt resurfacing or an asphalt overlay. This is also known as asphalt reconstruction and is the process of adding a new layer of asphalt over an existing paved surface. We can help with the asphalt resurfacing of your residential driveway, pathways and parking lots. 

Asphalt patching

Asphalt patching is limited to the top 1-2 inches of an asphalt surface. We use asphalt patching for smaller surface areas that have a stable base to support the patching repairs. Some application patching is used for:

  • Potholes
  • Overlays and edge repairs 
  • Utility cuts
  • Around manhole covers, water valves, drains and catch basin grates

Asphalt Patch Repair Procedure

CanWest fills the affected areas with hot or cold asphalt mix (cold patch), depending on the season and/or site location
