Patching is a good solution to extending the life of pavement when small, isolated areas have deteriorated and need to be repaired quickly. We utilize several methods of patching, and the one we recommend for a specific project will depend on the condition of the overall surface and the severity of the deterioration.

Pothole Patching — This method involves manually installing new asphalt mix and compacting the area. McFadden provides emergency pothole patching with a “cold patch” product during the winter season. Although this repair is quick and inexpensive, it is only a temporary fix, because it does not correct any underlying problems.






Surface Patching — This patch requires a partial depth removal by milling the surface of the asphalt, cleaning it, and then installing new asphalt. This procedure removes surface defects and the repair will generally last about 4-5 years if milled to proper depth.

Dig Out Patching (Full-Depth Patch) — With this process, the deteriorated asphalt is fully removed to the base before installing the new asphalt. This is the most long-term repair of the three listed.
