Comprehensive Crack Control from Phoenix, AZ’s Asphalt Experts

If you’ve got asphalt, sooner or later you’ll have cracks. Once water seeps in through cracks, it deteriorates the foundation of your pavement and leads to worse problems. The important question is what type of cracks you have and how bad are they? Not all cracks need to be sealed. Rather than talk you into more than you need, Cactus will tell you exactly what you require.

Our Process:

We use a special crack sealer containing rubber and polymers. We first heat our crack sealer to over 300 degrees. Then we inject this sealer into cracks with a pressurized wand. This effectively seals out moisture and creates a protective barrier for your asphalt. It’s easier than paving — not to mention less expensive.

Crack Sealing FAQ

Crack sealing is an essential service for many businesses in the Phoenix area. Our clients often have questions about how to seal cracks in concrete, so we’ve prepared these FAQs for you. We want you to understand why crack sealing is so important, so our experts at Cactus Asphalt have put together some questions and answers for you. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any other crack sealing questions we didn’t get to.

What is the purpose of crack sealing?

Crack sealing is sometimes referred to as crack filling, and this service helps to extend the lifespan of your asphalt. Base erosion and the sun’s rays are the two main reasons why cracks develop in asphalt. The sun is especially hot in the Phoenix area, so having our experts apply a concrete crack sealer is often necessary.

How long does crack sealing last?

Asphalt crack sealer is used for crack sealing, a process that extends the lifespan of your pavement. Crack sealing can often last up to eight years or longer. This permanent treatment lasts much longer than crack filling, which often lasts for only one or two seasons.

How is crack seal applied?

The process of how to seal driveway cracks should be left to experienced professionals like those at Cactus Asphalt. Driveway crack sealer can be poured hot or cold. The hot pour process involves pour pots, a hose, and a wand applicator. The cold pour process uses a pour pot only.

Can crack seal be done on the same day as seal coating?

While crack sealing can be performed on the same day as seal coating, we recommend giving your pavement more time to dry. It’s often best to allow 72 hours between these applications so your crack seal can dry before the seal coating is applied. Our experts at sealing foundation cracks can help you create the ideal timeline for your next project.

What are the primary benefits of sealing cracks?

We wouldn’t recommend you get a service you won’t benefit from, so it makes sense to understand the benefits of crack sealing. The main advantage of having your cracks sealed is to reduce your potential future asphalt repair costs. Think of our cement crack sealer as a preventative maintenance service. Another benefit of this service is to increase the lifespan of your existing paved surface or parking lot. Our team can use Quikrete concrete crack seal to give you the best products and services in the industry.
