When roads have been resurfaced and the subgrade is not repaired beforehand then you may end up with water damming and eventually cracking and forming potholes.  These situations call for emergency repairs, especially in winter weather.  These repairs will be temporary in nature and are done very quickly to avoid accidents and damage to your car. There are various methods that are used for this temporary fix.

The quickest and least expensive method is Throw-and-Go which offers no heavy compaction. The pothole is filled with asphalt which is left slightly higher than the rim of the hole relying on traffic to compact it.

This temporary method requires that water and debris be removed from the pothole. All loose asphalt and stones eating into the good asphalt are cut back and squared-off. The Throw-and-Roll method cleans the debris and water from the pothole with a stiff broom, or air blower, filling the pothole with asphalt material, leaving a 1/8 or ¼ inch crown. The material is compacted with a hand tamper or with the truck tires.

In both crack sealing and pothole patching, vigilance is important. Don’t wait until the driveway is in poor condition to schedule the work.  Inspect the paving before distress makes the necessary resurfacing or patching before too much damage is done.
