Asphalt Pothole Repairs Perth

Potholes can be both dangerous and unpleasant, and they don’t make a good impression on your guests, visitors, or customers. It’s important to repair a pothole in a timely manner, as they can quickly deteriorate with traffic and rain and turn into a dangerous safety hazard. Equally important, you don’t want a pothole to become a speed hump!

Keep Your Asphalt Surface Safe

Potholes are one of the most common maintenance issues we see with an asphalt surface. If you have a driveway leading up to your house, a car park outside of your business, a road or pathway – chances are your asphalt will eventually develop potholes. Asphalt surfaces have an incredibly long life span. However, maintenance does play an important part in keeping your asphalt safe, functional, and aesthetically pleasing.

What Causes a Pothole?

Your asphalt surface will in time develop cracks. This is often a result of heating and cooling of the surface as well as traffic. You might not think a small crack in your asphalt surface is a problem. However, even the smallest crack allows water to seep through to the underlying materials.

With the additional stresses of heating and cooling of the surface and traffic on the weak spot, you will eventually see a breakdown of the roadway material, creating a pothole.

Once a pothole has developed it will only get wider with time, water, fluctuations in temperature, and traffic speeding up the process.

Pothole Repairs FAQs

We typically repair potholes in one visit, and you can use the surface immediately after. However, weather conditions do influence how long a repair will take, especially in the colder months when our trades are unable to complete full repairs in one visit. The good news is that we are generally able to anticipate the timeframe of repair works in advance.

On the day of the pothole repairs, we will cut out the damaged section, apply tack coat (a binder), lay the asphalt, and compact it. Many potholes together may be cut out into a larger area, limiting the risk of a pothole forming. Repairs are left flush with the existing asphalt for a neat finish and to avoid unnecessary speed humps. We always remove all rubbish and leave the site clean and tidy.

We will conduct a site inspection to assess and discuss the scope of works. We will measure the areas in need of repair to provide an accurate quote. Potholes are typically priced at $ 60/m2, and we do have a minimum call-out fee which covers approximately 8m2. There may be additional costs involved if we are required to bring trucks and additional staff to repair the site, however, this is all subject to the size of the pothole and the number of materials required. We will talk you through all costs associated so that you know exactly what is involved.

Routine vehicle inspection is important to ensure that your tyres are properly inflated and do not have significant wear. If you hit a pothole with worn or under-inflated tires, there is a greater risk of wheel or suspension damage. It’s foremost important to always stay alert on the road to avoid potholes if possible. If you’re unable to avoid an upcoming pothole, release the brakes just before impact, and allow the wheels to roll through the depression to help minimize potential damage.

Should your vehicle hit a pothole, contact a qualified mechanic immediately to inspect your vehicle for pothole damage. A hard impact can knock the wheels out of alignment and affect steering and wheel alignment which can become a safety threat for passengers and other vehicles on the road.
