Sawcut Patching — This is the most durable and longest lasting asphalt repair. The failed area is removed, a new stone base is installed and then the area is re-paved. Common repairs are loading docks, dumpster areas, and high traffic areas.
Infrared Patching — This is a unique method of asphalt repair. Infrared rays are used to penetrate deep into the existing asphalt, heating it to the point at which it can be scarified and re-worked. New asphalt is then added as needed and the area is compacted, providing a seamless repair. Common repairs are potholes, utility cuts, trench repairs, correction of low and high spots, and manhole repairs.
Skin Patching — This method involves filling in low areas by adding asphalt. A glue is applied to the low area and then asphalt is installed to fill the depression. Skin patching does not provide the durability of a sawcut repair. Common repairs are potholes, low areas along foundations and in front of garage doors.
