Pothole Repair and Patching Services in the Twin Cities Area
If you live or work in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area, you are no stranger to cold weather. Even though you might have acclimated to the low temperatures and the chilly winters, the asphalt surfaces in your city may not survive the winter unscathed. Freezing temperatures and ice can leave your parking lot or roadway dotted with unsightly potholes.
If you’re responsible for maintaining a heavily-used road or parking area and you need pothole repair services, turn to Bituminous Roadways, Inc. We serve municipal and commercial clients across the Twin Cities area and perform professional repairs with a meticulous attention to detail.
Types of Pothole Repairs
- Fill-In Temporary Repairs. This method of pothole repair is a quick and inexpensive solution for emergency repairs. This “Throw-and-roll” technique does not include any cleaning or shaping of the patch area. Cold mix asphalt, a form of asphalt pavement that is moldable at cold temperatures, is used to fill potholes during the winter months, and a truck tire is used to compact the cold mix asphalt until the patched pothole is level with the pavement.
- Dig-Out Permanent Repairs. This method of pothole repair is more labor intensive, but it provides a cleaner looking patch area. All water and debris are removed from the pothole, and the pavement around the pothole is cut to provide vertical and in-tact pavement on all sides. A binding tack coat is used on the vertical sides to hold the patching material in-place, and hot mix asphalt is used to fill the patch area. Lastly, an impact roller is used to compact the hot mix asphalt and make it level with the surrounding pavement.
