Serving Bradenton, Sarasota, Venice and Surrounding areas
Asphalt is one of the most indispensable materials of life in America. Want proof? Think about the fact that 94 percent of the paved roads in America are surfaced with asphalt.
Asphalt is the sustainable material for constructing pavements. From the production of the paving material, to the placement of the pavement on the road, to rehabilitation, through recycling, asphalt pavements minimize impact on the environment. There are many reasons that asphalt is the pavement of choice, low consumption of energy for production and construction, low emission of greenhouse gases, and conservation of natural resources help to make asphalt the environmental pavement of choice.
The proper way to patch pot holes in a parking lot or driveway is to cut and remove the asphalt debris and dig the hole to a depth of 2", then replace with 2.5" of hot mix asphalt and compact it with a roller or whacker packer. Please do not let anyone talk you into just throwing hot asphalt or cold patch (we really don't like cold patch) into the pot hole and have you believe that traffic will compact the asphalt. This method will only last a couple of months before the asphalt breaks loose and spreads throughout your parking lot.
