At BorderLines, we dedicate the proper time and care to effectively seal cracks to ensure our clients paved properties will last for years to come.
Did you know that regular crack sealing is the most important thing you can do in preventative pavement maintenance? If left untreated, water and moisture trapped in the cracks can cause erosion that jeopardizes the integrity of the structure, and which can result in large repair costs.
Using superior asphalt rubber that is specially formulated to withstand the freezing and warming of Minnesota seasons, our products meet or exceed Minnesota Department of Transportation specifications for roadway crack fillers.
During our commercial crack sealing process, we use high-powered blowers and a Crack Jet heat lance to clean, dry, and remove any vegetation and debris from the crack to optimize adhesion between rubber and pavement. Where recommended, we will use a machine cutter to rout along the cracks to make more room between the pavement and rubber. This allows the rubber to fill the crack completely and prevents water from entering. The rubber is heated to 400°F and remains pliable, even after it has fully cured, allowing the asphalt to expand and contract during freeze and thaw cycles. Black silica sand is then immediately applied to the cracks to prevent any tracking while the rubber cures.
If your pavement has cracks or is showing signs of aging, call us today to schedule an on-site evaluation and free estimate.
