The terms “asphalt” and “bitumen” tend to be used interchangeably, however they are not quite the same thing. Asphalt is the substance typically used to construct road surfaces, while bitumen is used to create asphalt. Asphalt is made when the black, viscous hydrocarbon mix we know as bitumen (a derivative of crude oil) is mixed with crushed rock.

Potholes and other impingements in a road or driveway surface are not just unsightly and annoying – they can also be dangerous and, over time, they will only get worse unless repaired properly.

When this happens, the aggregate water will pool and ultimately sink into the roadway’s sub-base. Here it damages the base, leading to loss of integrity in the road and very time-consuming, inconvenient, and expensive repairs.
As such, it is very important to promptly repair potholes and other damage to asphalt surfaces so as to maintain safety and save money in the longer term.
Asphalt deteriorates over time due to an array of factors. These include the natural ageing process of asphalt as well as issues such as:
By maintaining the integrity of your driveway, carpark, or roadway surface, you not only uphold its appearance and ongoing functionality and safety; you also save money over time and prolong its lifespan.
