Pothole Repair – Avoiding Costly Liabilities
Moisture intrusion is the leading cause of pavement deterioration. When left alone and when cracks are not repaired, potholes become evident and a safety problem. Potholes represent an annoyance to vehicle traffic and a serious tripping hazard to pedestrians.
To avoid potential liability, potholes should be filled immediately upon discovery with either SealMaster cold patch materials or hot mix material.
Filling potholes is a relatively easy and inexpensive process.
To Properly Maintain a Driveway or Parking Lot, It’s Important to Prepare the Asphalt Surface Prior to Sealcoating.
Cracks in your pavement along with pot holes and raveling not only reduce the value of your property and are un-appealing, they are also a safety issue and cause problems for visitors. With SealMaster’s large network of sealcoating and asphalt maintenance contractors, a solution to unsightly pavement can be had.
How Do Potholes Form?
Moisture Intrusion into Cracks is One of the Leading Causes of Potholes.
Pavement deterioration occurs when melted snow or rainwater seep through cracks in the pavement and can’t get absorbed into the frozen ground. When the water freezes, it expands and can “pop” or weaken the asphalt. The weight of autos rolling over the weakened pavement causes chunks to break away.

Asphalt Pavement Patching
Severely damaged pavement requires patching using either Infrared Patching techniques, Full-Depth asphalt repair, or GatorPave.
Infrared Patching involves heating up and re-melting the damaged asphalt, raking and then compacting the asphalt to produce a “like new” asphalt patch area.
Full-Depth Asphalt Repair involves cutting out and removing the damaged asphalt, repairing the base and replacing with fresh hot mix asphalt. Full-depth asphalt repair typically provides better long-term results.
SealMaster GatorPave is a polymer-modified, fiber reinforced asphalt emulsion fortified with select aggregate. It is designed for patching cracked and alligatored pavement. GatorPave is both economical and easy to use.
SealMaster offers a full line of oil spot primers for sealing oil, gas and grease spots on asphalt pavement, and high-quality asphalt emulsion tack coats for use in priming asphalt surfaces, prior to patching or resurfacing.
When the work is done, SealMaster makes clean-up easy with our line of specialty cleaners designed for the removal of coal tar and asphalt pavement sealers from tools, equipment, vehicles and other surfaces.
