Crack Filling and Sealing
Over time, small cracks naturally grow in your asphalt as the materials age and weaken. The trouble is that these small cracks let water to penetrate the asphalt and seep through to the subgrade. The more water that makes its way under your pavement, the more failures you will see on the surface. Over time, the cracks will grow larger, the pavement may buckle, and other problems may appear.
You cannot ignore even tiny cracks as aesthetic issues. When you see cracks, you need to address them immediately. If the cracks are less than 1/4 inch in size, Roadrunner Paving and Asphalt Maintenance can seal the pavement to prevent water penetration and the widening of the cracks. However, if there are cracks on the pavement that are more than 1/4 inch wide, they will need to be filled with a high-quality material to ensure that they do not contribute to damage to the asphalt.

We start by thoroughly cleaning and prepping the damaged area so that it can properly adhere to the filler. We also do this prep to ensure that the cracks are thoroughly cleaned of debris so that the filler will penetrate every opening.
