Where Do Potholes Come From?

A combination of moisture and changing temperatures weakens the asphalt and creates an air pocket beneath the surface. As traffic drives over the weakened area, the surface cracks and creates a pothole.

How Are Potholes Repaired?

During colder months, we use a product called cold mix that remains pliable in winter temperatures. When the materials become available in warmer months, we use a product called hot mix asphalt, which allows a more permanent repair.
