At some point in time, all pavement surfaces will experience some type of cracks. Cracks are typically caused by base failure, moisture intrusion, freeze/thaw, heavy traffics or other environmental factors. The most important thing you can do to avoid future costly fixes is to fill cracks while they are still small. Studies have shown that for every dollar a property owner or municipality spends on crack sealing, they save $6 on future pavement repairs and restoration.
Typical costs for crack sealing can range anywhere from .35¢ to $1.00 per linear foot depending on materials and methods used.
There are several factors that affect the overall cost of crack filling including:
• Size of project (linear feet of cracks to fill)
• Severity of the cracking (large or small cracks)
• Surface preparation (Blowing out cracks or using mechanical router or brush)
• Type of crack filler used (cold applied or hot applied)
• Geographic location
