Patching is the most common type of asphalt repair. Patching can be used on all types of flat asphalt surfaces: including driveways, parking lots and roads. Patching is the best solution for many different types of asphalt defects. Asphalt Ninjas can even upgrade your pothole repair with a patch to increase the aesthetic pleasure and strength of your asphalt restoration. Asphalt Ninjas are able to install almost any size patch.
Skin patching is a step up from filling a pothole. Skin patching consists of covering a damaged area with about 1.5 inches or less of fresh asphalt. The Asphalt Ninjas will cover the targeted area with hot asphalt, straighten the edges of the patch into a rectangular shape for the best aesthetic results and then compact the new material. Skin patching adds another layer of protection for your asphalt.
Sand Sealed Edge Blending
Want to take your skin patch up a notch? Adding sand sealed edges to your skin patch is a way to extend the life of your repair. Sand sealing bonds the edges of the existing asphalt to the edges of the new asphalt repair. This bond seals the edge and prevents it from unraveling.
Excavation is required when the base layer underneath your asphalt is defective. The Ninjas will saw cut and remove the defective asphalt and repair the rock base underneath. Hot asphalt is used to fill in the area and is compacted to make a smooth surface layer. The edges of an excavated patch are straight and the finished patch will be in the shape of a rectangle. By removing the asphalt and repairing the base, the root of the problem is fixed.
