Ignoring asphalt cracks or other forms of damage never turns out well in the end. Although some asphalt problems take years before they become a dangerous situation, others can develop seemingly overnight. While taking a gamble on how long a small crack might take to become a major pothole is never recommended, you could also wake up to a need for emergency asphalt repair after a major storm or uptick in traffic flow. Since life in Kissimmee, Florida and the surrounding areas can be eventful, it’s important to know that our emergency repair services are available around the clock to fix safety issues on your property.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REACTIVE AND EMERGENCY REPAIR SERVICES?
Preventative maintenance for asphalt pavement includes services such as sealcoating, yet there comes a point when it is time for repair. We typically categorize reactive repairs as being the ones that correct problems before they get worse. This might include patching cracks and repairing minor potholes.
An emergency repair is anything that involves fixing an area to eliminate a traffic flow disruption or to immediately restore the safety of an area. For instance, we may need to come out immediately to repair a major pothole that could cause an accident.
WHAT ARE COMMON ASPHALT EMERGENCIES?
Oversized potholes are an obvious emergency situation, but there are a few other problems that can be more subtle. For instance, excessive raveling on a parking lot or road can create an environment where vehicles can easily lose traction.
Significant shifting of the paved area could also cause buckling, which creates uneven parts of the pavement that might be unsafe to drive on. Even the sudden removal of parking lot line striping or directional markings could be an emergency, if it disrupts the flow of traffic or pushes your property out of compliance with ADA regulations or local codes and ordinances.
HOW FAST CAN YOU DO AN EMERGENCY REPAIR?
Once we receive a call for emergency repairs, we make every effort to get to your location as quickly as possible. Once there, we’ll assess the situation and make a recommendation for repairs. Infrared asphalt repair is often our go-to option for handling emergencies. Using special equipment, we can heat up the existing asphalt before mixing in new materials and compacting the treated area.
Being able to skip the drilling and milling process saves us time, and we may be able to allow traffic back to the area soon after it cools. Keep in mind that some emergency repairs are meant to be temporary. We’ll let you know how to care for the treated area and if you’ll need to follow up with a more permanent repair when we discuss your project.
