Why Asphalt Crack Sealing Is the Best Money You Can Spend

Why Asphalt Crack Sealing Is the Best Money You Can Spend

Ever since COVID-19 came along, fewer people in Pittsburgh have been traveling by road because of quarantine. As we were all locked up in our homes, the parking lots and roads being more exposed showed everyone that they were looking quite rough around the edges.  That is just what happens when your paved surfaces haven’t received some TLC in a while. Parking lots and roads crack open, and your asphalt and concrete pavement surfaces start to look like they could use a makeover.

So, just what is crack sealing anyway?

Crack sealing, as the name suggests, seals in the cracks found on your asphalt surfaces by applying a hot melted rubber sealant inside the cracks to prevent water seepage. When the sealant cools down, it acts as a sturdy adhesive to keep the cracks in conjunction with one another; therefore, preventing chances of the paved surface from cracking open during Pittsburgh’s scorching summer months.

Does crack sealing work on all sorts of cracks?

Yes sir. Crack sealing is the perfect companion for both horizontal and vertical cracks of varying sizes. Also, it’s great for other types of asphalt and concrete cracks, especially concrete cracks, heaving cracks, settling cracks, cracks caused by premature drying, and much more!

The Benefits of Crack Sealing 

No one has ever gone wrong with crack sealing their paved parking lots and roads. Ever. 

Here are some top benefits of crack sealing and why it’s the best bang for the buck: 

  • It seals and protects your asphalt surface from water penetration and the dreaded freeze-thaw cycle which causes paved surfaces to crack open 
  • Crack sealants use hot melted rubber, which when cooled down, works smoothly and stays flexible with your pavement’s movement
  • Can be used for any sort of crack – big or small 
  • Improves the health of your paved surface and prolongs its durability and longevity
  • Crack sealants are heat-resistant, meaning even in the harshest of weather, the sealant will not melt off and expose your parking lots’ cracks 
  • Handles strong chemicals released from vehicles very well 
  • Prevents debris, oil, and gravel from depositing in between the cracks 

It saves you from having to get a new road or parking lot paved from scratch – super budget-friendly!
