Know What Makes A Pothole
In order to fill potholes and fix your property, you must first know what makes a pothole happen. Potholes are the result of the expansion and contraction of water after it has entered into the ground under the pavement. As the weight of cars and trucks pass over the weak spot in the road, pieces of the pavement become weak. This results in the material breaking down from excess weight of trucks and cars passing over the weak spot in the pavement. This inevitably creates potholes. To fill potholes, you must follow four steps: cleaning, heating, adding the new custom aggregate mix, and cooling. Sealcoating will then protect the filled and cooled pothole and extend its life.
