At Duramax Asphalt, our goal is to provide the best asphalt maintenance and repair to our customers. We understand that our customers have additional needs that are just as important as quality of work, which we strive to meet every time. This particular job called for a focus on timeliness. The Tile Shop’s Roseville location is one of the busiest stores that accommodates a lot of traffic. Their biggest need was to allow the regular flow of busy traffic to not be affected by shutting down their parking lot. Duramax Asphalt met and exceeded that need. Using our infrared asphalt repair process allowed us to have one truck and two men that worked fast and effectively kept their parking lot open for normal business to continue.

ASPHALT REPAIR CASE STUDY

The Tile Shop is a well-known name in the Twin Cities. They have several locations and want to provide the best experience to the customer from their curb appeal to the showroom floor. Needless to say, the location in Roseville needed immediate attention. We approached them concerning their issue with their parking lot and provided a clear and detailed proposal to fix it.

OUR INFRARED ASPHALT REPAIR SOLUTION

Our task was to reintegrate the deteriorated area back into the good existing asphalt around it. This goal is achieved using infrared asphalt repair. When we use infrared heating technology, it heats the repair area, as well as, the asphalt around it. This creates a HOT seam, which we allow to cool to create a thermal bond to the existing area around the repair. This is how a seamless asphalt repair is achieved.

WHY INFRARED?

There are numerous ways to fix asphalt deterioration and we believe infrared asphalt repair is one of the best. This particular job consisted of a highly used parking lot, which was sloped to drain towards the curb (picture above). Knowing the amount of traffic in this area along with the amount of water drainage, infrared asphalt repair was the solution to permanently fixing this area.

THE BENEFITS OF INFRARED ASPHALT PATCHING

This company needed a long lasting repair as well as little to no interference with their day to day. Duramax Asphalt achieved both. First, in using our infrared asphalt patching process, we only needed two guys and one truck to complete the job. The repair area was heated and softened to a depth of two and a half inches with additives added to replenish the existing asphalt. New asphalt was incorporated to allow for better drainage. The entire perimeter was left with a hot seam and when cooled, created a thermal bond to the existing asphalt around it.
Secondly, another great benefit to our customer in this job was our timeliness. We completed over 25 repairs throughout their parking lot in one day, and this particular area of repair was completed in less than two hours. Allowing full accessof the parking lot and not restricting their daily business.

This area was an eye sore for this company and needed to be addressed before it became much worse. Duramax Asphalt was able to quickly and effectively fix the issue allowing for better drainage and eliminating any further deterioration.

The fact is that asphalt is constantly deteriorating and the worst thing you can do it ignore that signs. This job could have been much smaller if actions were taken sooner to eliminate the problems.
