Repairing Asphalt Potholes | Video

  • Transcript

    Over time, traffic, sunlight and the elements will cause potholes to develop in asphalt road ways, parking lots, driveways and pathways. Once a pothole has begun to develop, it will deteriorate rapidly, as water reaches the gravel base. Repairing asphalt potholes is easy with QUIKRETE Commercial Grade High Performance Blacktop Repair.

    Commercial Grade High-Performance Blacktop Repair is an advanced, all-season formula that permanently bonds to the surrounding asphalt, sealing water out while providing a new, smooth driving surface and permanently repairing asphalt potholes. High-performance blacktop repair requires little surface preparation to be effective.

    Simply square the asphalt pothole edges as much as possible and pour the repair material into the hole. Over fill the hole about two to three inches above the surrounding asphalt. Using a tamper, consolidate and compact a black top repair until a firm surface is achieved.

    To further compact the repair material, place a piece of plywood over the patch and slowly drive over the plywood with a vehicle tire. The pothole repair can be opened to traffic immediately.
