Potholes, potholes, potholes. It’s a big topic this season after the extreme fluctuating temps from this winter, and a lot of vehicles are suffering the consequences. If someone runs over enough potholes in your pavement or hits one at the wrong angle, their tires could be at risk. No business, apartment complex, or HOA wants to be the cause of car damage, so it’s always good practice to keep your pavement well-maintained. Plus, it’s good for curb appeal. 

When it comes to potholes, prompt attention and proper maintenance are essential to prevent further damage and ensure the longevity of your pavement. Metro Paving Inc understands the importance of addressing potholes promptly and efficiently to protect your investment and enhance safety. 

Evaluating the State of Your Pavement 

After being evaluated by a paving expert, the pavement’s state will determine the kind of job needed. It could need a complete remove and replace job, or maybe the damage can be covered by a patching or overlay job. In general, if the foundation remains strong, a patching job is used for areas with smaller damage, and larger areas require an overlay. 

Choosing the Right Solution 

If a pothole has been contained to one area, patching is a great solution. However, if the pothole has grown or lies next to other damage, then an overlay will do the job. Luckily, both options are more budget-friendly than a complete replacement, allowing you to maintain your pavement without breaking the bank. 

Environmental Considerations 

If the freeze-thaw effect has done enough damage to compromise the foundation, it could still be eligible for a more affordable replacement process: reclaim and repave. Metro Paving prioritizes environmentally sound solutions by reusing the old asphalt for the new, saving our clients money and reducing waste in the process.
