How are potholes fixed?
Potholes can progress rapidly from annoying to dangerous, causing damage to cars and putting pedestrians at risk for injuries. Therefore, it is important to have them fixed as soon as possible. Exactly how a pothole is repaired, though, depends on the weather.
In cold weather, an emergency cold patch can be placed. It will prevent the damage from getting worse, and minimize the risks until spring. However, potholes should be properly fixed during warm weather. In this case, the edges of the asphalt will be smoothed out and the hole cleaned of debris before a hot mix asphalt is poured and leveled off, creating a tight and long-lasting seal.
