What is Crack Repair?

Our service includes:

  • Asphalt Crack Sealing
  • Asphalt Crack Filling

Crack repair, also known as crack sealing or crack filling, is one of the most essential asphalt repair and maintenance practices. Cracks in your asphalt allow water to penetrate and erode the material below. Regular crack maintenance prevents potholes and further asphalt damage. It is essential to use the right equipment and materials to ensure that a crack seal job can withstand tough Minnesota temperature changes. Most standard DIY crack seal solutions for driveways or parking lots just won’t cut it. With most store-bought solutions, you will find that you need to reapply your crack seal treatment every year. This means you protect your asphalt’s subbase from some water, but you miss a bunch more. If you don’t properly address cracks forming and apply a professional-grade solution, you will face expensive repairs sooner rather than later.

At Lakes Pavement Maintenance, we use a professional-grade Crafco rubber melter to melt the crack seal to a temperature that meets the manufacturer’s specifications, typically between 350-400 degrees. Once the rubber reaches its molten state, the crack seal pot continues to mix and maintain that temperature without burning the material. Then we apply the molten rubber to the cracks that we have cleaned and prepped. If you’re serious about keeping your asphalt in good shape, contact us today for a free estimate.

FAQs for Crack Repair


The best crack sealants that are produced are hot pour solutions. Most cold pour solutions that can be found at the local hardware store are too rigid and can’t expand and contract with the cracks.


For certain jobs we will route cracks. However, for most driveways and parking lots just filling the cracks is the most economic and practical solution.
