How to Do a Pothole Fix

Potholes blight the appearance of driveways, private roads and carparks. They are not only unsightly and dangerous for pedestrians and vehicles, but also cause damage to tyres, suspensions and wheel alignment. Leaving them unchecked can lead to further damage and require a more extensive repair job in the future.

While potholes may seem like an insurmountable problem, they are actually fairly easy to fix for those who are competent with hand tools and have a strong back. Whether you own or operate a business, having the knowledge to fill potholes as they appear will save time and money in the long run. This article takes you through the basic steps for a quick, cheap, and effective pothole fix.

Quick Fixes: Solutions for Pothole Repair

This is a simple pothole repair process that can be used on asphalt or tarmac surfaces. It is not suitable for concrete paths as these require a different approach and heavy-duty equipment. This method works well for most small potholes and is particularly suited to small areas that are too deep for conventional crack fillers.

This method involves spraying a tack coat of binder over the pothole surface and spreading it evenly. This is then covered with a layer of aggregate. A second tack coat of binder is then applied and topped with more aggregate. The surface of the completed patch should be leveled and compacted with a hand tamp or similar method before use. For a more permanent solution, this technique can be complemented with the use of an infrared heating unit and asphalt hot box.
