As property owners and mangers, you may have started to realize that the winter weather may not have been so kid to your asphalt parking lot.
The winter months can cause your parking lot to develop potholes, alligator cracks, uneven pavement and other issues. This is because of the freeze thaw cycle and harsh chemicals and deicers. Don't worry though, these repairs can be fixed with infrared technology. Infrared asphalt repairs can be completed all year long. This is important because parking lot issues develop all year, not just when the weather is nice.

Infrared asphalt repairs are the most cost-effective and long-term repair options available. Most infrared repairs start at $1,500.00. An infrared asphalt repair takes 1/2 the time of a traditional removal and replacement repair. It uses less asphalt than a traditional repair and requires less on-site equipment. Therefore, the overall cost is less. That price is then passed on to the customer.
Infrared Asphalt Repair Process
Preparation Of Damaged Area
Your contractor will clean and prep the repair area by removing all debris. This is the most important step in any asphalt maintenance project. If the area is not prepared correctly, it will fail again.
Heat Up Area
The asphalt surface is then heated with an infrared asphalt machine. The length of time the asphalt is heated varies on weather and the depth of the existing surface. The deeper the asphalt and the colder the air....the longer the asphalt needs to be heated. The asphalt is heated to 325 degrees.
Once the asphalt is heated, the asphalt crew will rake away loose debris and add hot-mix asphalt to the affected area. If needed, they will add a rejuvenator to the asphalt. A rejuvenator is only added if the existing asphalt was oxidized.
Once the new material is in place, the asphalt crew will level out the area and compact it by using a vibratory roller or plate. Once the area is compacted it creates a seamless edge. This compaction prevents water infiltration.
