Learn why it’s not too late for asphalt patching.

As we reach the end of November, you may be afraid that it’s too late to have schedule asphalt patching to protect your pavement. While asphalt paving can’t be completed in the winter, many plants are still open until December! Learn more about asphalt patching and why it’s important to repair your pavement before winter.

What Is Asphalt Patching?

Asphalt patching is a very cost-effective way to protect your asphalt surfaces and foundation. The process of asphalt patching refers to repairing potholes and cracks, which provides quick improvement for the look and safety of your pavement. Patching also helps to protect the asphalt against further damage or erosion. There is a range of materials that may be used, including hot mix asphalt, asphalt emulsion mixes, proprietary patching mixes with special blends. Your paving contractor will know which asphalt patching technique and material to select based on the repairs your asphalt needs. With this service, property managers will save a significant amount of money by repairing cracks and potholes, rather than repaving an entire damaged parking lot.

Why Asphalt Can’t Be Paved In Winter

It is important to schedule asphalt patching today, as you can’t have it paved in the winter. The cutoff date for paving varies by region, as it is dependent on the temperature and state of the ground. If the temperature is below freezing and the ground is frozen, you will not be able to lay pavement. This is because asphalt that is used for paving is very hot, and when hot asphalt is poured on top of a frozen surface, it will begin to freeze. Many asphalt paving contractors close by the beginning of December when the weather reaches freezing temperatures, so you only have a short amount of time left!
