Breaking the pothole cycle — 4 Comments

  1. My husband and I just moved into a new house, but there are several potholes on our street, so I wanted tips and advice on patching them up. I didn’t know you need to compact when you’re patching a pothole or else you’ll have water penetration later. I’ll have to keep that in mind and find a service that can come early in the morning to fix our street, thanks to this post!

  2. It’s good to know that preparation is the key to making a pothole fix last. My sister has been telling me about how a pothole formed in her street recently. I’ll share this information with her so that she can look into her options for contractors who can help her with this.

  3. It is critical during the preparation stage that the perimeter of the repair area is cut to form a 90* angle to the road surface. This controls and directs the compression forces applied by vehicle traffic. Doing this will stop the upward movement of the repair material around the perimeter( mushing out) and the hole will not reform. Yes, it takes time and effort, but you’ll never have to fix the same pothole twice!

  4. Interested in this unit and where your canadain supplier in the west are ( Alberta ) Edmonton .
