What is crack sealing?

Crack sealing is the practice of routing and sealing cracks and joints in the pavement with a hot-poured rubberized sealing compound.   Joints or cracks in pavement, if not sealed properly, will allow water, dirt and other foreign materials to enter. As water soaks down through the unsealed cracks, damage will occur through the freezing and thawing cycles. Allowing water to penetrate beneath the joint or crack will also displace the sub-grade, which will cause further cracking and generally deteriorate the traffic surface.  Crack sealing extends the life of the pavement.
