Cold Planing Asphalt Repair: The Right Approach to Cracks and Potholes with Pothole Nerds

Cold Planing Asphalt Repair: The Right Approach to Cracks and Potholes with Pothole Nerds

At Pothole Nerds, we are always looking to offer innovative solutions for asphalt pothole repair and sealcoating, and we know that dealing with cracks in parking lots and driveways is a common issue.

Many approach this problem with what's called a "skin patch," a quick but unreliable method. The skin patch might look good initially, but without the proper foundation and connection, it's destined to fail. It's comparable to an edge weld in welding where two pieces are joined at the edges, but no overlapping creates strength.

We believe in a different approach:

  • Utilizing Specialized Equipment: Our bobcat with a cold ¬†planer allows us to cut out a long, linear crack, providing a more effective solution.
  • Precise Cutting: We cut about an inch and three-quarters deep, not quite two inches, to avoid mining into the foundation. This allows us to lock in the new asphalt for a more permanent repair.
  • Avoiding Skim Patch Repairs: We strive to provide solutions that last, avoiding quick fixes that might not hold up in the long run.
  • Infrared Heaters: For those looking for a cost-effective yet reliable solution, our infrared heaters can melt the asphalt for a solid repair.

Our commitment to providing quality and innovative asphalt repair services sets us apart. If you have a big parking lot and don't want to do a full-blown replacement, we might have the right solution for you.

Don't let those cracks and potholes ruin the appearance and functionality of your parking lot or driveway. Contact Pothole Nerds today to discuss your specific needs, and let our expertise in asphalt repair make the difference.
