Residential Crack Repair
Cracks in your asphalt are the first signs of extreme wearing on your pavement. If you let cracks remain, then the sub-base structure of your pavement is compromised and you may be in for a hefty bill. Take care of these as soon as you can by giving us a call!
Commercial Crack Repair
An asphalt parking lot is a major investment for a business. If your budget is tight, we always recommend sealing your cracks as a minimum in preventative maintenance. This will ensure that water has no where to travel within your asphalt surface.
Heavy Civil Crack Repair
We do city streets and roads as well. If you are a general contractor or city official looking for a quote, let us know and we would be happy to get you some numbers.
Why it Matters
Cracks develop over time through the natural freeze and thaw cycles we experience here in the Bozeman and around Montana. These cracks can lead to an expensive and unsightly failure of your asphalt driveway and parking lot if not properly addressed. At YPS we recommend filling these cracks as soon as they appear in order to mitigate any damages that will ultimately occur.
We take pride in our work and have developed a sealing process that ensures maximum dependability. Your asphalt surface was a big investment, so why not make it last as long as possible? Crack repair is one of the most effective techniques of increasing a pavements life.
Crack Repair FAQs
Most frequent questions and answers
How do Cracks Form?
Cracks generally form from slight shifts in the sub-base (gravel) that lies below an asphalt surface. This could be from inadequate compaction at the time of paving. As well as a higher than normal water table that allows the ground to shift with changing seasons. Nevertheless, cracks are the by product of a shift below the surface of your asphalt pavement. And if left unchecked, these cracks can severely degrade the pavement at a much faster rate than normal weathering.
What Should I Do to Address Cracks in my Asphalt?
Cracks should be sealed immediately upon noticing them in your asphalt pavement. The longer you wait, the more moisture will seep into your sub-base and degrade the pavement. If you let this degradation go too far then you will be left with a pothole that will need to be removed. This option is far more expensive than just keeping up with general driveway maintenance. If you begin to notice cracks in your asphalt driveway call Yellowstone Pavement Solutions and we will send out one of our engineers to asses the damage and give a viable and price conscious solution to your specific situation. Cracks are certainly not something to be overlooked and by ignoring them, the home or property owner can really open themselves up to costly repairs in the future.
How Much Does Crack Repair Cost?
All jobs are bid as individual projects so prices will fluctuate. As a general rule of thumb, you can assume that asphalt crack repair and crack sealing will generally cost between $0.65 and $1.10 per linear foot. Prices are all based on quantity, so the larger the job, the cheaper the overall crack repair price will be.
Are There Different Crack Fill Materials ?
Yes. The materials vary based on ASTM specifications. We have a couple options, with the most popular being a product that conforms to ASTM 6690 and is used in most commercial and residential settings. This product sets up really nicely and rarely pulls up. We have more information if you would like, just follow the contact form and let us know!
