Crack Sealing Asphalt & Concrete

Cracksealing is a first defense against deterioration on pavement and offers many important benefits.

Example of random asphalt cracks

Parking lot cracks are essentially unavoidable since they are caused primarily by exposure to sun and moisture. The problems are compounded here in the Midwest, where the extreme temperature fluctuations common in “freeze-thaw cycles” can cause more extensive damage by trapping water in the cracks beneath the surface and then widening the cracks as the water refreezes and expands. Left untreated, these cracks can continue to widen and eventually cause pavement heaving or spread to adjacent areas and deteriorate more with heavy traffic loads.

The professional crack sealing methods used by McFadden's provide a very effective first defense against pavement deterioration. Early and proper sealing of cracks keeps water from entering the opening and weakening the base or sub-base. It also keeps dirt, sand and stone from getting compressed into the cracks and creating additional stress. Crack sealing minimizes crack growth and preserves the pavement adjacent to cracks. When professional techniques are used during the early stages of deterioration, crack sealing can effectively double the lifespan of pavement and significantly delay costly resurfacing.
