Pothole Repair 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 chilly winters, the asphalt surfaces may not survive the season unscathed. Freezing temperatures, snow and ice can leave your parking lot or roadway dotted with unsightly potholes.
When the snow melts in the spring and you see potholes that have formed in your parking lot or roadway, turn to Bituminous Roadways, Inc. We serve municipal, industrial and commercial clients across the Twin cities to perform professional asphalt repairs with meticulous attention to detail.
How do you repair potholes?
- 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.
