TYPES OF ASPHALT CRACKING
Asphalt maintenance goes beyond just sealcoating. A lot of damage to asphalt can occur with water intrusion through cracks in the asphalt. Crack filling is an essential application in addition to sealcoating for long-term pavement protection. Each freeze/thaw cycle is another opportunity for pavement deterioration.
Potholes, Spider web or Alligator skin cracks are produced when traffic erodes small pieces of an already weakened pavement surface.
