At Bradley Asphalt Company, we understand the challenges property managers and homeowners face when it comes to maintaining asphalt surfaces. Asphalt cracking, a common issue due to elements, heavy traffic, and aging, can significantly deteriorate your driveways and roadways if not addressed promptly. Our expertise in asphalt repair ensures that every crack and pothole is effectively handled to extend the lifespan of your pavement and maintain a smooth and safe surface.

Understanding Asphalt Cracks

We have been repairing damage to asphalt driveways since the 1980s and have many long-term clients whom we have been assisting, helping them avoid costly repairs. Our years of experience have shown us that asphalt cracks can come in several forms, each requiring a specific approach:

  • Alligator Cracks: These extensive networks of interconnected cracks are typically due to fatigue and require a comprehensive approach.
  • Transverse Cracks: Caused by temperature fluctuations, these run perpendicular to the direction of the road and need targeted treatments.
  • Longitudinal Cracks: These parallel cracks can result from poor joint construction or shrinkage and are meticulously sealed by our team.
  • Edge Cracks: Often a result of insufficient base support, these are effectively countered by improving the edge support.

Properly identifying the type of crack is the first step in our repair process, ensuring that the right method is chosen for long-lasting repairs.

Importance of Timely Repairs

At Bradley Asphalt, we emphasize the importance of addressing repairs early to prevent escalated damages. We understand that your main asset is your base of your driveway and keeping it strong and damage free. Here’s why timely repairs are crucial:

  • Prevent Water Damage: Cracks can allow water to seep through, weakening the base and leading to more severe problems.
  • Reduce Extensive Damage: Early repairs can prevent the worsening of cracks, saving on more extensive future repairs.
  • Ensure Safety: We prioritize repairs to prevent safety hazards for both vehicles and pedestrians alike.

Our goal is to save you money in the long run and maintain the aesthetic and functional quality of your pavement.

Our Solutions for Asphalt Crack Repair

Depending on the type and severity of the cracks, we recommend and implement various effective solutions:

  1. Crack Filling: Best for non-working cracks, we use a rubberized asphalt emulsion, renowned for its flexibility and durability.
  2. Crack Sealing: For working cracks, we apply a hot-poured sealant that effectively accommodates temperature changes and movement.
  3. Patch Repairs: We remove and replace extensively damaged asphalt sections with new material, ensuring a more permanent solution.
  4. Surface Treatments: Techniques like slurry seals, micro-surfacing, or thin overlays address multiple cracks and help restore the surface integrity.
