Although smooth asphalt provides an ideal surface for walking and driving, damaged asphalt can be dangerous for pedestrians and drivers. Imagine a car unexpectedly swerving to avoid a large crack or a customer turning his ankle in a pothole. Unfortunately, if your property is not maintained, you can be liable for someone’s injuries. It is cost-effective to keep your asphalt in excellent repair instead of paying high insurance premiums or legal bills.
Paving Plus, based in North Jersey, offers two methods of repairing asphalt. When possible, Paving Plus recommends using the infrared method because it is cheaper than the traditional method and provides seamless, attractive, smooth repairs that are durable. Infrared asphalt repair is also ideal for textured or stamped areas. The process requires cleaning and drying the area, heating the surface, raking the pliable asphalt, replenishing oils with a rejuvenator, and applying and grading the asphalt. Finally, a roller compacts the area, and contractors unite the repair with the existing surface.
Paving Plus suggests conventional asphalt repairs when potholes and cracks are deep enough to penetrate the base and sub-base. However, conventional repairs take more time, work, and money than infrared repairs. Old asphalt must be removed and hauled away from the site. When the pothole is repaired, a seam is evident, and the repair may be less durable than an infrared repair. Nevertheless, in some instances, infrared repair is not an option, so Paving Plus offers two types of repairs to meet our customers’ needs.
