Roadway sealing in the Midwest is a necessary preventative maintenance program due to the multiple freeze-thaw cycles we experience with our weather. Each time the rain falls into the streets it finds cracks to infiltrate and eventually finds a path under the pavement.
As the temperature falls below freezing then rises above it again, water expands and contracts. This cycle is responsible for hundreds and sometimes thousands of potholes throughout the city each year. Our goal is to seal 1,250,000 square yards of pavement each year. This allows us to seal the entire city every 2½ years.
