Potholes are the result of moisture seeding into pavement areas. When the water from the moisture gets cold, it causes expansion, then thawing. When this happens repeatedly, it causes the surface to weaken. The weak pavement is then susceptible to erosion from frequent traffic. Over time, the wear and tear of the affected area causes the asphalt and the soil beneath it to be removed, thereby causing a hole. Both the loose asphalt and the ther-eafter hole are safety hazards that can lead to falls and injuries. Florida Sealcoating LLC in Orlando, understands that dealing with potholes around your home or business can be a liability and we have a team of experts ready to assist you with any pothole repairs on your property whether it be residential or commercial.
Once a pothole is identified, it’s ideal to have the pothole repaired in a timely manner in order to reduce the potential for further damage and risk of an injury. The first step involved in a pothole repair is the removal of the failed asphalt. This can be done with either a jackhammer or a masonry saw. The goal here is to create a clean-cut rectangle while removing the extra asphalt. New asphalt is then added in layers in conjunction with an adhesive. The area is then ready to be compressed and flattened out with a roller designed especially for pavements. Florida Sealcoating in Orlando takes special care with each and every step of the pothole repair process to ensure the area is safe again for you and your guests.
When performing all pot hole repairs, the area is saw cut to sub base. Once the asphalt is cut and removed, the sub base is evaluated and repaired as necessary. Once the sub base is in acceptable condition, asphalt binder is applied, and new SIII Hot mix is installed. The new asphalt is leveled and compacted. The area will be opened to traffic as soon as the repair is completed.
