Infrared Thermal Asphalt Repair is more durable than traditional repair method. Saw cut repairs leave a seam between the old and new asphalt that will allow water to penetrate the repair. Unsightly Skin patch repairs have a raised transition which can cause repair failure which can crack, separate or chip away. The thermal repair process heats the existing asphalt to its original state; bonding the repair to the surrounding asphalt.
