Asphalt Maintenance & Paving

Crack Routing & Hot Crack Sealing


Crack Routing is a crucial step to prepping any crack before cleaning and filling. Crack Routing allows the crack to be cleaned properly, exposes a fresh clean side wall for better adhesion, and allows more material into the crack so it can expand and contract with our climate’s freeze thaws.

Asphalt Maintenance & Paving will specify the width and depth of the cut for each project. All cracks are cleaned with forced air and, if necessary, a heat lance to dry out moisture and remove vegetation.


Ever wonder what causes potholes? The majority start as an unsealed crack that has taken on moisture over the years. Hot Crack Sealing, in conjunction with Crack Routing, is by far the most cost-efficient and permanent repair method available today. Asphalt Maintenance & Paving uses State and Federal-approved materials on all projects to keep water and debris from re-entering the sub-base.
