Why crack seal?
Crack seal is a treatment to maintain and extend the life cycle of the roadway. Research shows that crack sealing programs are cost effective in extending the life of pavement, as opposed to the cost of extensive pavement repairs for streets left unsealed. Crack sealing assists in the prevention of water between the layers of asphalt and sub-grade, thus preventing premature pavement failures, deterioration, and potholes.
