For standard cracking we first thoroughly clean out the crack. Then we use high-quality rubberized crack and joint sealant to make the repair. Fatigue cracks, commonly referred to as alligator cracking given their visual similarity to the skin of an alligator, are typically indicative of a structural issue below the asphalt surface. In these cases, we will dig out the area and proceed with a patch, which can involve bringing in aggregate and incremental asphalt. A patch is an effective way to eliminate further fatigue cracking in the area.
