A cost effective practice
Traditionally, pavement preservation consists of Patching, Crackfilling, and Sealcoating. Other new methods of pavement preservation are Infrared Asphalt Repair and Asphalt Rejuvenation.
In the last twenty years, the price of asphalt has risen substantially while the quality of the material has been reduced. Preserving existing pavement versus allowing a natural deterioration and subsequent asphalt overlay or replacement is extremely cost-effective. The Michigan Department of Transportation says the State saves $10 for every dollar spent on pavement preservation. Most studies claim savings of at least $3 per dollar spent on preservation.
Is it necessary to crackfill?
Eventually, all asphalt pavements will crack. If these cracks are left unfilled, rainwater will find its way through these cracks and into the ground below. In the climate of the Northeast, this causes pavement failure due to the many freeze-thaw cycles and corresponding expansion and contraction of the ground below. Moisture in the ground causes a soft spot under the pavement. This soft spot allows the asphalt to flex under traffic and the cracking grows (alligator cracking).
Sealcoating prevents oxidation of asphalt, reduces the loss rate of asphalt "fines", reduces water penetration, facilitates snow removal, expedites cleaning, and beautifies.
Rejuvenator is a spray applied liquid asphalt restoration product that actually penetrates the asphalt with a combination of tars and solvents and restores the flexibility and appearance to new condition. Rejuvenator is recommended for asphalt that has not been sealed previously, and area of moderate to heavy traffic.
