Crack Sealing In Alexandria
Alexandria residents are no doubt familiar with how much our temperature changes from season to season and that these swings from hot to cold and back again can do serious damage to our asphalt. Most property owners, after a few seasons, must commit to a full repaving to undo the damage done by the elements. However, there is a more cost-effective measure they can take to increase their asphalt’s lifespan.
At Midwest Asphalt Maintenance, we pride ourselves on providing Alexandria with the best possible crack sealing services for anyone in need of asphalt repair. Our licensed and insured personnel always provide first-rate products and apply the most advanced asphalt maintenance in the area.

Seal Cracks to Prevent Water Damage
No matter how well your asphalt was laid, time and external factors like sunlight, oil and oxygen can all cause it to wear and crack overtime. However, there is no greater threat to the integrity of your asphalt than water.
If water seeps into cracks in your asphalt, it can penetrate the base and sub-base layers. When this happens, it accelerates the deterioration process. Water in the base can cause the base material to migrate, causing it to separate and further crack.
Sealing the cracks on your property can prevent water from seeping into the base and sub- base layers. We promise that you will not have to prematurely pay for a brand new driveway, road or parking lot.
How to Seal Asphalt Cracks
Every crack sealing job Midwest Asphalt Maintenance is contracted to do begins with an assessment. We will come to the site and survey the surrounding area. If our paving technicians deem the affected area to be a good candidate for sealing, we will then clean out the area so that there is a reservoir for the sealer.
The sealer will then be heated and, once melted, it is injected into the crack. Once the crack is filled with the sealant, it will contract and cool so that it is flush with the pavement. Within a few minutes it will return to its rubber form and it will be ready to drive over.
If you have any additional questions about our process and the materials we use to seal cracks in asphalt, please feel free to call us today at (320) 212-3627.
Fatigue cracking, commonly referred to as alligator or crocodile cracking within the industry, is widespread cracks that resemble a reptile’s back. These types of cracks, because of the wide area they cover, cannot be fixed with regular sealing methods. In these cases, the damage is done and new pavement is required.
Be wary of any paving company that promises to fix this problem with sealant. Instead, work with the paving professionals known for their trustworthiness at Midwest Asphalt Maintenance.
