Overlay Joint Sawing and Sealing Services Near Me

What is Overlay Joint Sawing and Sealing?

Concrete and asphalt surfaces take a beating with consistently high usage, heavy loads, weathering, and exposure to the elements. As such, it’s important that roads, driveways, parking lots, commercial properties, bridges, airport runways, and other such surfaces are maintained properly. Overlay joint sawing and sealing is a crucial maintenance process that helps to prevent water infiltration, erosion, and the effects of weathering while increasing the longevity and durability of these surfaces. 

  • Sawing: Sawing on asphalt and concrete surfaces involves cutting joints into the overlay (top) surface. The purpose of this is to allow the surface to expand and contract with thermal changes. It helps prevent cracking and controls the effects of weathering.
  • Sealing: Once the joints are sawed, sealant is applied to the joints which prevents water and debris from accumulating in the joints. Maintaining the pavement’s integrity is vital and the most useful tool for this task is a sturdy sealant
