Repairing Asphalt (using infrared asphalt repair techniques)is an extremely cost efficient method for fixing the asphalt surface at your home or place of business. Badly cracked areas and depressions in your asphalt give it an old, unsightly appearance (not to mention makes it unsafe) that is easily corrected by any one of our many asphalt repair services.
Serious problems can begin to occur from even just a few cracks that go unrepaired. Left unrepaired, cracks will allow moisture to penetrate the asphalt surface. Water expands as it freezes, so moisture in the cracks usually will do the greatest amount of damage in the winter months. A.A.T. Infrared, Inc. uses only the highest quality and grade of hot rubber material to fill cracks in your asphalt because the rubber allows the sealant to expand and contract with the pavement as the temperature fluctuates. Cheaper crack fillers that are sold in stores become hard when cured and crack again quickly as the pavement moves allowing moisture to penetrate again.
Asphalt patching is a common asphalt repair on areas of asphalt pavement with potholes. Potholes occur when water seeps into asphalt pavement through unsealed or improperly sealed cracks. When the water freezes, it expands and enlarges the cracks in the asphalt. When the ice under the pavement melts, a void is left. The surrounding asphalt pavement falls into the void and forms a pothole.
Infrared asphalt repairs allow deep penetration repair and recycling without causing burning, scaling, or separation of the asphalt from the aggregate. Other benefits of asphalt repair over asphalt replacement include: cost savings because the project is completed with less raw materials; time savings because this repair option takes less time than traditional asphalt resurfacing; seamless asphalt repairs are better and last longer because the patch bonds to existing surface and produces no joints for water to penetrate and fewer traffic interruptions because the patch can be driven on almost immediately.

Infrared patching: Heat existing asphalt surface, remove damaged asphalt, add new or recycled hot mix to area, set the grade and compact. Large or small asphalt repairs can be performed.
Asphalt patching: Areas that have base deterioration or other damage that is beyond repair will be corrected and new pavement will be installed.
In more extreme cases of asphalt failure, a long-term and cost-effective solution is to resurface the asphalt pavement (also referred to as overlay). If you notice grade depressions (standing water on the pavement) and/or large sections of alligatored areas (interconnecting cracks in the asphalt, which forms a series of blocks resembling an alligator's skin), it is a good idea to have your pavement resurfaced.
