How to repair potholes. The right way.

We properly fix potholes to maintain the durability and safety of parking lots and driveways.

  1. Assess the Damage: The initial step is to find and evaluate the pothole. This includes determining its dimensions, depth, and the state of the nearby pavement in order to decide on the most effective repair method.
  2. Prepare the Site: Prior to starting any repairs, it is crucial to clear away any debris, water, or loose materials from the pothole. This may require using a broom, air compressor, or other tools to ensure that the area is free of any obstructions and ready for the repair materials.
  3. Clean the Area: Before any repair can begin, it’s essential to remove any debris, water, and loose material from the pothole. This can involve using a broom, air compressor, or other tools to ensure the area is clean and ready for repair material.
  4. Prepare the Hole: For the repair material to adhere properly, the edges of the pothole may need to be cut or shaped. This creates a more uniform space for the filler material and can help prevent the repair from failing.
  5. Apply the Repair Material: Hot asphalt —is then applied to the pothole. The material is compacted into the hole, filling it from the bottom up to ensure there are no air pockets that could lead to future weaknesses.
  6. Compact the Patch: Once the pothole is filled, the new material needs to be compacted to match the density of the surrounding pavement. This can be done with a hand tamper for the small areas and a paving roller for larger repairs, ensuring the patch is flush with the road surface.
  7. Seal the Patch: Finally, the new patch should be sealed around the edges to prevent water from penetrating between the new and old pavement. This helps to extend the life of the repair and prevent the pothole from re-forming.

Masonry Value Adds

  • Durability: Masonry materials such as brick, stone, and concrete are extremely durable and can withstand heavy foot traffic, harsh weather conditions, and other wear and tear. This means that masonry features like driveways, walkways, walls, and patios can last for many years without needing frequent repairs or replacements.
  • Aesthetics: Masonry materials can add a classic and timeless look to any property. With a wide range of colors, textures, and patterns available, masonry can be used to create a unique and attractive design for any area of your property.
  • Increased Property Value: Adding masonry to your property can increase its value by enhancing its curb appeal and overall aesthetic appeal. This can be particularly important if you are planning to sell your property in the future.
  • Low Maintenance: Masonry features are generally low maintenance, requiring little upkeep beyond occasional cleaning and sealing. This can save you time and money in the long run.
  • Safety: Masonry features like walls and walkways can help to prevent accidents by providing a sturdy and safe surface for walking, as well as by defining boundaries and creating barriers.

The Right Way 

Paving a new asphalt driveway or replacing an existing one involves several key steps to ensure durability and quality.

  1. Planning and Design:
    • Assessment and Measurements: Assess the area for the driveway, considering the size, shape, and gradient.
    • Drainage Plan: Ensure proper drainage to prevent water accumulation, which can damage the asphalt.
    • Permits and Regulations: Check local building codes and obtain necessary permits.
  2. Foundation Preparation:
    • Removal of Old Material: If replacing an existing driveway, remove the old asphalt or other materials.
    • Grading and Sloping: Grade the driveway area to ensure proper drainage.
    • Compacting the Base: Compact the soil and lay a sub-base material (like gravel) for stability and drainage. This layer should be compacted and leveled.
  3. Laying Asphalt:
    • Choice of Asphalt: Select the appropriate mix of asphalt for your climate and usage.
    • Thickness: Typically, residential driveways are paved with 2 to 3 inches of asphalt. We recommend two lifts (layers) of 2 inches each. Compressed it becomes 3 inches.
    • Application: Hot asphalt is laid over the prepared base. It’s crucial to work quickly as asphalt cools and sets rapidly.
  4. Compaction:
    • Rolling: After laying the asphalt, it’s compacted with a roller to ensure a smooth, flat surface.
    • Attention to Edges: The edges of the asphalt should be compacted properly to prevent crumbling.
  5. Curing
    • Curing Time: Allow the asphalt to cure. This process can take several days.
  6. Maintenance:
    • Regular Inspection: Regularly check for cracks or damage.
    • Prompt Repairs: Address any issues promptly to prevent further deterioration.
    • Re-Sealcoating: Reapply sealcoat every few years to maintain the integrity of the asphalt.
  7. Safety and Quality Control:
    • Safety Measures: Ensure safety for workers and pedestrians during the paving process.
    • Quality Checks: Perform regular quality checks during each stage of the process.

This  will definitely help your driveway stay stronger and last a lot longer.
