Potholes can appear anywhere on a road surface, paving, walkway or parking lot. The potholes are caused by heavy traffic wear and tear, and in some cases, they are caused by water damage or snow fall. The water slips into the underlying surface of the asphalt and freezes during the cold season expanding whatever crevices are present in the asphalt and during the hot season, the ice melts leaving a vulnerable patch. Once vehicles pass over such an area, it causes damage or the pavement to cave in requiring pot hole repair services.
Early detection of potholes on any surface is very helpful, as it will enable one to take the necessary measures and repair the damaged part of the asphalt before it gets worse. Patching up a pothole will minimize if not control the damage. Potholes have caused serious problems for road users; this is through road accidents causing serious injuries and in some cases death. The damage caused by potholes has created the pothole repair services industry that is now growing on a daily basis.
Locating and patching cracks on the roadways, paving, parking and walkways is one of the most cost-effective ways of dealing with potholes. Early detection gives one a chance to solve the problem before it worsens from a small crack on the road or walkway to a huge crack or pothole on the road. This is a method employed by many if not all pothole repair services companies. The price of resurfacing roadways is very high hence the need to identify problem areas and deal with them before they expand and cause more damage. These problem areas that may lead to potholes include areas with inadequate drainage systems and areas with high traffic of heavy vehicles.
There are several methods on how to patch up a pothole including patching and filling up the potholes, infrared heater patching and spray injection patching.
