Cracks in asphalts have a way of cropping up when you least expect them. It only takes one particularly harsh winter with its repeated freeze-thaw cycle or extreme heat and flooding during summer for cracks to form.
As a residential or commercial property owner, these cracks are bad news. They might be hairline cracks for now, but neglect them, and you're bound to spend thousands of dollars to have them repaired when the cracks widen or become potholes.
The easiest way to have them repaired is to hire an asphalt maintenance contractor. But hiring a contractor can be an expensive option for some property owners.
Plus, asphalt maintenance is like maintaining a house — you have to repair cracks, keep it sealcoated, and fix other types of damage year after year after year. Wouldn't it be better if you can just whip out the equipment and supplies from your garage whenever you need them instead of phoning the contractor and hoping that they could squeeze you into their busy schedule?
The good news is you can do asphalt maintenance yourself, and you can invest in supplies and equipment so you can access them any time. At Asphalt Kingdom, we have a wide range of crack repair equipment designed to be used by contractors and DIYers like you.

How to Repair Cracks on a Driveway or Parking Lot
- Using a wire street broom or an Asphalt Crack Cleaner Machine, sweep the cracks to get rid of dirt, vegetation, or loose asphalt. Burn and remove weeds with a heat lance.
Note: Don't overclean the cracks as this could deepen the area needed to be repaired. You're going to need a lot more crack filler when this happens. Also, do not pressure wash cracks as moisture could affect the adhesion of the crack filler.

- Use a gas-powered blower to remove any remaining dirt from the cracks and the surrounding areas.
- Turn on the RY10 Pro and carefully load your Deery Crack Sealer. Wait for the crack sealer to melt, and apply the crack sealer at walking speed.
- Cordon the area with attention ribbon while the crack sealer hardens and cures.
