Types of Asphalt Cracks
To get the most cost-effective crack repair for your property, it’s important to understand the different sort of cracks that can impact your pavement.
- Transverse Cracks – These sort of cracks are perpendicular to the centerline of the pavement, usually caused by temperature changes.
- Longitudinal Cracks – These cracks are parallel to the centerline and are also caused by temperature changes but also by shrinkage of the pavement.
- Alligator Cracking – So called because they resemble alligator skin, these cracks are interconnecting and span over a large area of pavement. They’re generally caused by pressure or heavy traffic.
Our Proven Crack Sealing Methods
The terms “crack filling” and “crack sealing” are used interchangeably, but they do reflect different types of asphalt crack repair. We specialize in repairing all types of pavement damage, so the pros at El Camino Asphalt will pick the right method for your property.
- Crack Filling – This type of crack repair involves using special rubberized asphalt emulsions on cracks under 0.1 inches like alligator cracks. The filler is applied hot and often compacted.
