HOW are potholes repaired?


  1. Hot asphalt can’t be applied in cold, wet weather – hot asphalt requires temps to be 50 degrees or higher

  2. Cold patch won’t compact as tightly as hot asphalt and may loosen again, especially when wet

  3. Mill and fill removes existing surface layers, usually in larger sections than the pothole, and refills the area with new asphalt for 7-10 year life span
