Asphalt Repair & Patching

Potholes occur when water seeps into pavement through unsealed or improperly sealed cracks. When water freezes, it expands and enlarges each crack. When the ice under the pavement melts, a void is left. Then the surrounding pavement falls into the void and forms a pothole.

Asphalt Removal & Replacement

As asphalt ages, its appearance diminishes—fine hairline cracks spread and deepen within the asphalt. Without ongoing maintenance, water may enter through cracks forming holes and eventually undermine the substrate. When this happens, the most effective form of repair is to remove and replace the deteriorated area.

Asphalt Resurfacing Procedure

This process consists of several steps including preparing and cleaning the area, leveling the existing asphalt in low areas, grinding all transitions, adjusting all drainage structures and, depending on the nature of the project, many other steps unique to each site.

Catch Basin Adjustment & Repair

Catch basins (or storm basins) are primarily used to collect pavement runoff and complement an existing storm drain system. To ensure proper pitch for drainage, catch basins often need to be adjusted. Traditionally, catch basins are constructed with a sump below the pipe invert—collecting sediment and debris entering the catch basin through the grate inlet. Over time the sediment builds up and has to be removed, either by hand or with the aid of a vactor truck.
