Asphalt patching is a great way to quickly and easily rejuvenate your asphalt and bring it back to its original safe and effective surface. Whether the utility company has just dug a trench through your new subdivision road or your 10-year-old parking lot has had a subgrade failure, Elam Construction can make the repair. The sooner your asphalt is patched, the less likely the damaged area will grow. A failing subgrade left untreated will only become a larger and more costly problem.
To place an asphalt patch, we start by cutting out the targeted area (either by saw cutting or jack hammering). The area cut is slightly larger than the damaged area to ensure the patch is tied into a solid foundation. We then fill the hole with asphalt that meets or exceeds the existing asphalt depth and compact it to match the original surface. Quality control when patching asphalt reduces any transition roughness.
