Chicago is one of the busiest cities in the United States. Many business owners choose Chicago as the base for their company’s headquarters; and for good reason! The Windy City is a great place for business owners to find fresh new faces to continue business operations and traditions. The sheer number of businesses and homes in the area constitutes the use of a strong substance that can withstand traffic demands placed on it by the city. The asphalt throughout the city really takes a beating, but we’re standing by to maintain and repair asphalt roads in the greater Chicago area.
Asphalt must be maintained, just like every other substance, or it becomes cracked and riddled with potholes. Unfortunately we can’t always catch and repair every crack before it becomes a pothole, so drivers have to deal with potholes until they’re repaired. A city the size of Chicago has a lot of asphalt to be maintained! Annual maintenance prevents cracks and other damages caused by weather exposure and constant pressure from traffic.
Crack Routing and Sealing
Mild cracking can turn to crocodile cracks in a matter of days unless small cracks are addressed quickly. We route out small cracks to expose the solid foundation below asphalt before cleaning them and injecting a sealant that helps protect from additional cracking. Unattended cracks quickly become crocodile cracks and potholes. The faster we get these issues taken care of, the faster traffic will get back to normal.
Have you ever noticed that a local parking lot looks like it’s been repaved and painted within a matter of hours? It’s like getting an entirely new parking lot without the wait time. The sealcoating process refreshes the appearance of the entire parking lot and brings back that nice black shine. Lines are repainted, and the lot looks as good as new.
The sealcoating process covers the parking lot with a protective barrier that seeps into the asphalt to rejuvenate that dark black appearance. This protective cover is a sealer that protects the asphalt from damage from vehicles and the elements. It prevents water from seeping into the asphalt and creating cracks or potholes.
