In an effort to prevent deterioration of pavement, crack sealing is the first method used since it offers some great benefits that have been used successfully. The sealing will prevent weakening of the sub-base and base that is common from water entering. Crack sealing will keep stones, dirt, and sand from being washed into cracks that may be open and will keep the life of the pavement lasting many years. It will help to keep the pavement in the vicinity of the crack locations in good condition and will reduce the number of future cracks that may occur.
If you take the time to manage any problems from cracks early on, you will increase the life of your pavement two-fold and it will help keep any issues from spreading. Doing so now will be well worth it later. You will not have to fork out the money for resurfacing if you take care of the problems early. If you do put it off, you might be in for a costly fix.
