Asphalt Repair & Infrared Patching

Infrared Patching

Infrared Patching

Infrared patching is an extremely effective and cost efficient means of pavement repair. Unlike other patching methods, infrared asphalt restoration is a permanent repair solution, creating a seamless patch in your pavement with no way for water to leek in and cause damage. It can be done in extreme cold weather for emergency situations (where other patching methods cannot), minimizing further damage and deterioration caused by waiting for weather to improve.

With infrared patching, there is no need for milling, sawing, jack-hammering or excess equipment. It requires fewer people to operate and far fewer resources overall. This saves both time and money, making it cost-efficient and effective means of repair.

Go Green, Minimize and Recycle!

The infrared method utilizes a panel that heats existing pavement to 30 times the temperature of new asphalt. The asphalt becomes soft, allowing a hot liquid binder and fresh asphalt to me mixed directly into the existing pavement. The pavement is then leveled to the proper height and compacted with a roller.

Infrared patching is excellent repair for catch basins, water puddles, grooves from heavy equipment, potholes, curb failures, oil spots, failed joints or seams and other hazardous or unleveled pavement conditions.

While infrared’s effectiveness, time and cost-saving aspects are phenomenal in and of themselves, here is something that makes it even better: infrared patching technology is the cleanest, greenest and most environmentally conscious technology available in pavement repair. The existing asphalt is literally recycled into the new pavement, requiring very little new asphalt. There are no waste products, eliminating hazardous waste. With this technology also being less expensive and a permanent repair solution, there is no better way to go in pavement patching.

Sinkhole Repair

Sinkholes are unsightly, dangerous and are clear signs of a problem. They are caused in different ways, but are usually due to water in one way or another. This is why drainage is such an important factor for proper pavement management, both on pavement and in surrounding areas. Eosso Brothers Paving repairs sinkholes in grassy areas. Sinkholes usually require repair of damaged pipes, followed by filling the hole and compacting the soil. Repairing sinkholes promptly will prevent more costly pavement repairs down the road.

Oil Spot Repair

When oil spots get on pavement, they can cause permanent damage if not removed. Petrol products, antifreeze and kitchen oils absorb into the asphalt, causing it to deteriorate. If you find an oil spot in the first 1-3 days, you can clean with dish detergent, hot water and a soft broom. If it has been more than 4 days, apply kitty litter to the spot and sweep it with a soft broom. If the spot has saturated the pavement, try scratching the spot with a screwdriver. If the screwdriver penetrates the pavement, patching is necessary. If it does not penetrate through the pavement, an oil spot primer and sealcoating will work to repair the damage.

Drainage Issues

The primary cause of pavement deterioration is water. If water is left to pool on pavement and does not properly drain, it will lead to problems with your pavement. Water can also cause dangerous conditions, which in commercial and residential complexes can lead to increased liability. Eosso Brothers Paving will inspect the problem area and determine how to best fix it. Sometimes this requires a pavement patch to elevate the pavement in a particular area or installation of a catch basin or drain (see our catch basin page). Drains can be installed in both grass and pavement.
