Here are some of the reasons that cracks can develop.

  • Oxidation from the sun’s UV rays can cause the asphalt to become dry and brittle. This can lead to hairline cracks that enlarge over time.

  • Deterioration can occur under the surface. Moving ground, ice formation, and a number of other factors can cause the asphalt to crack and break apart.

Cracks can easily turn into Potholes. Potholes are open holes where the asphalt has not only cracked but broken away and separated from a section of the asphalt, creating a void and exposed base rock. There are several potential causes for the formation of potholes.  The following can all be root causes or combination causes for their formation:

  • Asphalt is too thin
  • Asphalt is too old
  • Poor Drainage (Standing Water)
  • Cracks that have not been sealed
  • Weather Conditions (Freezing water that causes expansion)
