What is Crack Seal and Slurry Seal?
Just like your car needs regularly scheduled oil changes to remain in good working condition, a street needs regular maintenance to function properly and meet its expected 50-year life span. Proactive maintenance and preservation through regularly scheduled crack and slurry sealing, every 10 – 15 years after a street’s construction is the most effective method for extending the life of pavement. This scheduled maintenance saves resources and keeps our streets drivable and safe.
Crack Seal – The most cost effective preservation method, crack sealing involves applying an asphalt rubber into a crack to prevent water intrusion.
Slurry Seal – A slurry seal is the application of a mixture of water, asphalt emulsion, aggregate (very small crushed rock), and additives to an existing asphalt pavement surface. This mixture seals the pavement and prevents water intrusion. Slurry seals are used on local residential streets.
