Potholes can be both dangerous and ugly. And they don’t make a good impression for your visitors or customers.
It’s important to repair potholes before they get any worse, as tends to happen when it starts to rain. Equally important, you don’t want a pothole repair to become a speed hump.
Asphalt surfaces have an incredibly long life span. However, during these years maintenance does play an important part in keeping your asphalt surface safe, functional and aesthetically pleasing. 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 surface will eventually develop potholes.
Do you have potholes in your asphalt surface? Let us help you. Since 1993, Claremont Asphalt has made quality repairs to pathways, car parks and driveways. Potholes are cut, boxed out and laid at existing level to achieve a flush finish and enable future overlay. Leaving you with a pathway, car park or driveway almost as good as new.
Why do potholes develop?
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.
You want to repair potholes as soon as possible. Once a pothole has developed it will only get wider with time with water, fluctuations in temperature and traffic speeding up the process. A big pothole will not only be more expensive to repair but it is also aesthetically unpleasing, far from the optimal impression you want to give new customers to your business or guests to your home. Not to mention, if the pothole is in an industrial area, it can be directly unsafe to operate in the area and transport goods.
Our Pothole Repair Process
It is important for us to understand your requirements in detail. That is why we always do an on-site inspection. During the inspection, we discuss with you the scope of the work, inspect the damage and measure the areas in need of repair. Based on the information from the on-site visit, we will provide you with a quote. Our quotes are final, ensuring you will not stumble upon unexpected cost.
We pride ourselves with providing a great quality service. That is why we work hard to liaise with clients, property managers, and other stakeholders to ensure access on the day. Together with residents/shop owners and other parties that might get affected, we discuss any particular requirements, everything to ensure a minimum amount of disruption.
On the day of the repair, we 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 further potholes 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.
