Infrared patching is a means of permanently repairing asphalt. It is ideal for: sunken asphalt, poorly drained areas, uneven joints, grade changes and potholes. Infrared repairs are permanent, seamless, low cost and match existing asphalt better than any other method.
A garage transition is a great way to fix sunken poorly drained asphalt around the garage and/or house. Depending on the project, a garage transition can be completed with either our Infrared or Cut & Fill Asphalt Patching process.
The asphalt surrounding culverts at the end of a driveway or parking lot takes quite a beating from plowing, flowing water and the culvert itself heaving with the freeze/thaw cycle. To ensure proper pitch for drainage, the area surrounding a culvert oftentimes needs to be repaired.
Remove & replace Patching
Infrared patching's one limitation is that it will not fix a base problem. If an area of asphalt is deteriorating due to a weakened or insufficient base (the gravel underneath the asphalt) we must cut & remove the old damaged asphalt so that we can re-work the base.
Catch basins (or storm basins) are primarily used to collect pavement runoff and act as a junction for a storm drain system. To ensure proper pitch for drainage, the area surrounding a catch basin oftentimes needs to be repaired.
Areas that drain poorly often cause the asphalt to fail prematurely. Most often in these cases the gravel base has failed, which means we must complete a traditional Cut & Fill asphalt patch to properly address the problem. Since the curb is built directly into the patch, it's a seamless transition that doesn't allow water to penetrate between the asphalt surface and the curb.
