What is an Asphalt Patch?

Patching is a budget-friendly resolution to restore asphalt surfaces, promoting an increased lifespan of your driveways, parking lots, and roads. It typically involves cleaning the damaged area, filling it with new asphalt material, and compacting it to create a smooth and even surface. The patching process can be done using a variety of techniques, including hot patch asphalt, cold patch asphalt, and infrared asphalt repair.

The process of patching an asphalt surface involves several steps:

Potholes

Potholes are holes in the pavement that can be caused by heavy traffic, freeze-thaw cycles, or water damage. Potholes should be repaired as soon as possible to prevent them from getting larger and causing more damage.

Cracks

Cracks in the pavement can allow water to seep into the asphalt, causing further damage. Driveway crack patch prevents them from getting larger and causing more problems.

Rutting

Rutting is a depression or groove in the pavement that can be caused by heavy traffic or a weak subgrade. Rutting can cause water to pool on the pavement, leading to further damage.

Fading

Over time, asphalt can fade due to exposure to sunlight and other elements. While fading does not necessarily require patching, it can detract from the appearance of your driveway and may be a sign that your driveway is in need of maintenance.

In general, it’s a good idea to inspect your asphalt driveway regularly and address any issues as soon as they appear. At Tulsa Area Asphalt Paving, we offer a range of pavement patching solutions that are tailored to meet your specific needs and budget.

When to Patch an Asphalt Driveway

Asphalt driveways are durable and long-lasting, but they will become damaged over time due to regular usage and wear and tear. Knowing when to do patching asphalt driveway can help to prevent further damage and extend the lifespan of your pavement.

Here are some signs that let you know it’s time to patch your asphalt driveway:

Once a pothole begins to form, it can quickly grow larger and more dangerous. As vehicles drive over the pothole, the pavement around it can become further weakened, leading to patching asphalt cracks and breaking apart. In general, it’s important to address potholes as soon as they appear. At Tulsa Area Asphalt Paving, we offer a range of asphalt patch repair and solutions that are designed to address patching potholes and other forms of damage to your asphalt surface.

How to Hide an Asphalt Patch

New pothole patching often stand out against older asphalt, and you might want it “hidden” with a fresh application. There are several ways to hide an asphalt patch and make it blend in with the surrounding pavement:

Sealcoating

Applying a sealcoat to the entire surface of the asphalt can help to make the patch less noticeable by creating a uniform and consistent appearance. The sealcoat will also protect the asphalt from further damage and help it last longer.

Line Striping

Adding new line striping or repainting existing markings can help to draw attention away from the patched area and make the entire surface of the pavement look fresh and new.

Color Coating

Some contractors offer color coating services, where the patch is coated with a special coloring material that matches the color of the surrounding pavement. This can help to make the patch less noticeable and create a more seamless appearance.

Asphalt Overlay

If the patch is in a highly visible area or if there are multiple patches that need to be concealed, an asphalt overlay can be applied to the entire surface of the pavement. This involves applying a new layer of asphalt over the entire surface, which can help to create a uniform appearance and hide any patches or other imperfections.
