Sun-Up Sealcoats LLC takes pride in achieving a sustainable solution for crack repair. Our products are built for the Mountains and outlast harsh winter conditions.
Crack Repair is an integral part of asphalt maintenance. The Rocky Mountains require design challenges that unfortunately, increase the probability of surface defects. Over time, cracks are inevitable in the mountains. A good asphalt base will take more time for fractures to appear, but when they do, there is a solution to saving your investment.
Ranging in size, depth, and length crack repair is unique to each property. Installing material can be applied with different procedures that asphalt companies inspect for the best possible result. The determining factor for successful crack repair begins with preparation. Adequately cleaning the fracture will achieve a proper bond that will seal the exposed base. By protecting it from the elements, other factors that cause separation can slow down and extend the life of your asphalt even further.
Heavy snowfall, cold temperatures, and changing seasons cause dreadful freeze thaw. When left exposed, water expands and contracts as making fractures grow until the asphalt completely separates from the original base.
Underneath asphalt is an aggregate and dirt fill base that becomes susceptible to erosion. Cracks being left unsealed will allow water to shift the compacted based and cause more severe separation.
Similar to the absence of sealcoat, if asphalt is left untreated the sunlight will age the surface by drying out the bituminous and aggregate composition. Cracks are a result of this and will continue to create problems if left unsealed.
In any industry there are companies that fall short of complete work. A paved asphalt surface should be installed, compacted, and inspected by quality asphalt services. In the event of asphalt being paved to thin or incorrectly compacted, premature fractures can occur.
Since asphalt is an exterior product, it is exposed to a variety of traffic and uses. We may not think of it, but chemicals such as oil, antifreeze, gasoline, diesel, and even car washing chemicals can disturb asphalt’s lifespan. This leads to brittle fractures that can be more costly to clean and repair.
At Sun-Up Sealcoats we understand the causes and solutions of crack repair. Over the years of operating in the Rocky Mountains, we have tested products for sustainable, better looking results. Our systems work alongside other restoration products, although crack repair can be completed by itself, we strongly recommend bundling both sealcoat and crack repair services.
