Protect Your Asphalt Before Winter in Central Wisconsin

Protect Your Asphalt Before Winter in Central Wisconsin

While fall foliage paints a beautiful scene, colder temperatures also signify the end of the sealcoating season. Sealant needs warmth and sunlight to cure properly, and with winter approaching, it’s not the right time. But fear not! Plenty of fall maintenance tasks can prepare your asphalt for the harsh Central Wisconsin winter.

Cracking Down on Problems: Crack Filling in the Fall

As temperatures fluctuate, your asphalt expands and contracts, leading to cracks. These seemingly minor issues can morph into potholes if left unattended. Luckily, crack filling thrives in fall’s cooler temperatures.

New Cracks? Introducing Routing:

For new cracks, we offer routing. We carefully saw them wider, allowing for deeper tar application to better handle future movement. A heat lance blasts away debris for optimal adhesion, followed by a powerful blower cleaning the entire surface.

Filling the Gaps: Right Pointe 3405 to the Rescue

Using a specialized trailer, we heat the Right Pointe 3405 crack filler to 350 degrees, ensuring it fills every groove. Within 15 minutes, your driveway or parking lot is ready for traffic! Remember, regular crack filling (every 2-3 years) prevents costly pothole repairs.

Pothole Patrol: Addressing the Nuisance

Nobody enjoys potholes. They damage vehicles and become icy hazards in winter. Patching is crucial, and we do it the right way.

The Right Way to Patch:

First, we meticulously saw cut the damaged area for clean removal. Next, we regrade the base, as strong asphalt relies on a solid foundation. Finally, we lay and compact new hot mix asphalt, ensuring a seamless, smooth surface. While more expensive than quick fixes, this method guarantees a long-lasting solution.

  • Clear leaves and debris regularly to prevent moisture buildup.
  • Address minor issues promptly to prevent bigger problems later.
  • Consider professional fall maintenance for optimal results.

By following these tips, you can ensure your asphalt survives the harshest Central Wisconsin winters and continues to serve you for years to come.
