Cracks in asphalt pavement can lead to more severe problems like potholes and even total pavement failure. However, crack sealing is a solution that can prevent such issues. Sadly, most property owners haven’t heard of it.
What is Crack Sealing?
Most people think filling and sealing cracks are the same service. Yet, they’re two different methods of repairing asphalt cracks. While filling literally fills in the gaps, sealing involves applying an adhesive sealant to the surface layer. Both services prevent moisture and other materials from infiltrating the asphalt, but sealing does it from the top down.

When is this service recommended?
Sealing is recommended for cracks wider than ⅛ of an inch. It should be performed as a preventive maintenance treatment before the surface becomes heavily distressed. Scheduling the service in the spring or fall is best when the pavement temperature is at least 40 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure proper adhesion. Property owners should also allow at least two weeks for the sealant to cure before applying other asphalt treatments, such as sealcoating and overlays.
