Parking lot crack repair is one of the most cost-effective ways to extend the life of your pavement surface. An effective pavement management plan includes annual hot-rubberized crack filling on the asphalt surface. 

Asphalt pavements allow moisture to penetrate the surface. This process causes potholes, cracks and eventually total asphalt and concrete failure. Failure to seal these types of cracks results in further cracking, and will lead to expensive asphalt replacement.

To prevent water from infiltrating the base it is recommended that a hot rubberized crack sealant be professionally applied to fill the cracks in your parking lot. 

**Please note, cold-applied crack sealing materials available at Hardware Stores / Home Improvement Chains are designed to be applied to residential driveway asphalt repairs and are not capable of giving the performance or longevity of a hot-poured crack sealant. **

It is important to begin a crack sealing program at the first sign of crack developing which can be anywhere from 2-5 years after initial asphalt installation. Hot-Rubberized sealants can be applied to your parking lots or driveway all year long. Hot-rubberized crack repair can be completed before any asphalt sealcoating or asphalt paving project.

Fixing asphalt cracks in pavement with a hot rubberized crack sealant will extend the life of your asphalt parking lot. Crack sealing, when used as an annual preventive maintenance program, will add value to your parking lot and save property owners money in the long run.
