Potholes are caused by the expansion and contraction of ground water after the water has entered the ground under the pavement. The freeze/thaw cycle in central Ohio combined with snow plowing wreaks havoc on asphalt pavements. The combination of aging pavement and more severe winters generally result in an increase in potholes and the cost that goes along with pothole repair. If the potholes are not repaired in a timely manner additional damage will result in additional cost as the pothole area is certain to expand. When customers, visitors, delivery services and employees drive into a pothole damage to their vehicle can reflect poorly on your business not to mention the liability consequences. Pothole damage cost drivers over three billion dollars a year in repairs. Automobile damage caused by potholes cost on average $300 per repair.
Jet-Seal has the knowledge and equipment, specifically designed to perform pothole repair in an efficient, cost effective manner. Hot asphalt mix will greatly out-perform products purchased in a bag from home improvement centers. Jet-Seal has access to hot processed asphalt year around, weather permitting. We have equipment specifically designed to keep the asphalt hot all day eliminating the need to dispose of any asphalt that is not used within the hour. This equipment not only saves on the cost of the asphalt but also results in less trips to the asphalt plant. This savings is reflected in our pricing. Any facility manager will tell you about the deficient performance of cold, bagged asphalt patch products. Those products are not designed for long term, they are a temporary solution. The combination of properly prepping the pothole repair area, using hot processed asphalt and proper compaction will result in a more permanent solution.
When hiring a contractor always be diligent in researching their credentials including; checking with the Better Business Bureau, asking for a certificate of general liability insurance as well as proof of worker’s compensation coverage. There is a lot of information on the internet, good and bad. Taking a little time to assure that you are dealing with a trustworthy company before the work has commenced can save you a lot of heartache after the fact.
