As a well-established pothole repair company, we are aware of the fact that weather can wreak on our asphalt pavement. Almost all parts of England move from one weather extreme to another from season to season. When the need to repair the potholes arises or when there is the need for asphalt pavement patching customers often face issues while making their choice at the time of maintenance. There is an availability of both hot and cold patching.

Cold Patching

Cold patching is a quick temporary fix for a tough break. There is no need for cold patches to be heated or sustained at warm temperature. In fact, it is applied and heated at the current ambient temperature. These are used as pothole fillers and to repair cracks which run an excess of an inch wide, but it should be kept in mind that cold patching is not the permanent method of repair.

Hot Mix Patching

When it comes to pothole repair, hot mix patching is the best choice the you can make. To see you well in the long term, asphalt upkeep and maintenance hot mix is a permanent asphalt repair option. If the season is suitable, a hot mix is a final solution to pothole repair.
