Yes, you will be able to see the crack fill through the sealcoat, because the texture of the crack fill is smoother than the texture of the asphalt. This is unavoidable if you want your driveway protected.
Pavement sealer can be applied to hot-pour crack filler almost immediately! Hot-pour crack filler usually cools enough to apply sealcoating within 5-10 minutes.
After it has been applied and allowed to cool, hot-pour crack filler remains flexible, allowing it to expand and contract with the outside air temperature. If you press it with your finger, it will flex. It you park on it with your car tires, it will temporarily retain the tread pattern. This is normal for
Hot-pour crack filler is a flexible, rubber-like commercial-grade product that is used to repair cracks in asphalt pavements. It starts out as a solid, rubber block that is melted down in a special kettle and heated to 400 degrees. Once melted, the crack filler is applied over cracks and hardens up deep inside the crack,
This happens due to the freeze/thaw cycles in the Midwest. Cracks may re-open. Crack filler is not a permanent solution, but a time-buying procedure that cannot be guaranteed. Crack filling tends to be a yearly maintenance.
Yes, snowplows can scratch the surface. It is important to communicate with your plow contractor. Loaders can damage the surface with excessive down pressure. Rubber blades should be used. If pavement has white scratches, we can touch up these areas.
Usually not. Cracks are filled more than repaired. If a repaired/filled crack continues to grow or flex, the repair or filler will open. Changes in temperature will cause the asphalt to expand and contract, and will cause cracks to open back up. CRACK REPAIRS DO NOT ELIMINATE THE CAUSE OF THE DEFECT BUT RATHER SLOW
No, pavement sealer will not fill cracks in the pavement. Cracks come in many sizes, and we offer different solutions depending on the size. Once pavement damage has started, it tends to progress at an increasing rate. The sooner problems are addressed, the greater cost savings are achieved.
