To repair or not to repair right now? That is the question. A common mistake some people make is “Let's fix our potholes ourselves. After all, it can't be that hard can it? Why not? It’s just a pothole we can fill with cold mix asphalt. Yeah, come on, let's buy a bag of cold mix asphalt and plug those ugly potholes right now.”
We think this is a big mistake because cold mix asphalt is not cheap and cold mix asphalt repairs only last for a very short while, as short as 10 to 14 days only. Cold mix asphalt repairs do not prohibit water penetration around the circumference of the pothole. This is because there is no sealing process which only occurs when professionally laid hot asphalt is applied after the pothole is specially prepared for repair, then finished and compacted properly.
The team at Budget Asphalt Repairs cleans out the damaged area first, fills it with environmentally friendly ceramic adhesive, over-fills the cavity with hot asphalt and finally compacts and overlays the repaired cavity. These steps and these steps only, reduce the likelihood of water penetration and pothole reoccurrence. If you want long-term asphalt and bitumen repairs, this is how it’s done.
