How to Save Money on Pothole Repair

How to Save Money on Pothole Repair

For most of Canada, the spring thaw brings more potholes than we care to handle. Potholes cause us all extreme aggravation and every spring cost municipalities across the country millions of dollars in repairs.

For emergency utility and pothole repairs, the most common and widely used material in Canada is a standard cold mix asphalt. Even when installed correctly, standard cold mix asphalt repairs rarely succeed. In fact some work crews have reported replacing standard cold mix patches twice in the same day!
