Asphalt Cracking – Fatigue Cracking, Block Cracking, Edge Cracking, Transverse Cracking, Slippage Cracking, and Reflection Cracking. All of these types of cracks can be identified and repaired.
Potholes – Heavy traffic, salting and snow removal will worsen potholes if they are not repaired immediately.
Corrugations – Asphalt corrugations lumps and bumps in the paved surface. These bumps and rises are usually caused by mixtures that are excessively high in asphalt plus contamination and moisture existing in the base.
Rutting – these usually occur when the asphalt hasn’t been compacted correctly and moisture infiltrates the layers. Heavy traffic then forms a rutt or indentation along the wheel path of the vehicles.
Grade Depressions – when sections of the pavement settle lower than the surrounding asphalt, they form grade depressions. Depressions are usually caused by lower layers settling because of improper installation.
Patch Failures – patches are a good way to repair some types of asphalt damage but have to be done correctly to have durability. Quick fix patches will only give you trouble and need to be removed and replaced with solid repairs to withstand the winter weather.
Bleeding – when the sticky asphalt binder leaks through the asphalt onto the surface of the road causing a black, shiny and slippery surface. Asphalt binders bleed through the surface of the pavement when too much asphalt is used in the construction mix, excessive sealant is used in cracks and joints and when seal coating is improperly mixed.
