Why Your Business Or Municipality Should Repair Potholes

Potholes are caused by the same science that makes a can of soda explode in your freezer - the expansion and contraction of water. Ground water gets under the pavement, expands when frozen, and contracts when it melts. The expansion bends and weakens the asphalt, and the contraction leaves gaps behind where the pavement can collapse and create a hole. This is why potholes multiply in spring as the ground thaws. 

If you require the expertise of a commercial pothole repair contractor or a municipal pothole repair contractor, our team of pothole repair contractors at Western NY Sealing & Paving have the information you need to know about asphalt pothole repair.

1. Pothole Repairs Prevent Further Damage 

One pothole can do a lot of damage to your entire driveway or parking lot. Here are three things to consider:

  • Existing potholes let more water get in under the sub-surface of your pavement.
  • Repairing a potholes now will prevent the formation of larger potholes and more substantial asphalt pavement damage.
