Do you have potholes on your property or driveway? Curtis Paving offers pothole repairs in North & West Vancouver, Vancouver and Burnaby for both residential and commercial properties.

One of the most effective ways of stopping pothole problems is to prevent them in the first place. Potholes can be prevented before they can cause severe distress by using prevention treatments.
What Causes Potholes
Potholes are a type of asphalt pavement failure caused by the presence of water. Over time, and with exposure to the weather, water seeps into the soil structure under the surface and weakens the supporting soil. In addition to that, the regular passing of traffic over the area loosens the asphalt and the soil. Eventually, these twin forces - the presence of water and passing traffic- create a hole. If you fail to attend to these potholes, they grow larger in size and can cause damage to vehicle suspensions. In severe cases involving fast-moving vehicles, accidents can occur. The following factors cause potholes:
Regular wear and tear with age
Exposure to the weather
Lack of regular maintenance
One of the most effective ways of stopping pothole problems is to prevent them in the first place. Potholes can be prevented before they can cause severe distress by using prevention treatments. Some of the prevention methods include:
Most of the potholes begin with a simple crack in your driveway. If the cracks are repaired at an early stage, the chances of potholes forming can significantly reduce. Crack infill method includes placing of specialized materials into the cracks to prevent water intrusion and underlying pavement layers. This can reduce potholes, and slow down pavement deterioration and crack spalling.
In order to prevent potholes, make sure as little water as possible gets below the driveway surface. This can be done through ensuring sufficient and suitable drainage systems surrounding the surface.
