Why Road Crews Prefer RockAsphalt

As a road maintenance manager, you understand that maintaining roads is an ongoing process. One of the most challenging aspects of this process is repairing potholes, which are unsightly and dangerous. Fixing them can be time-consuming, especially when dealing with hazardous potholes that require a quick solution.

Ready-to-use asphalt becomes your go-to option when you don’t have access to hot mix asphalt or enough time to use it. However, it’s crucial to note that not all ready-to-use asphalt materials are the same. In this regard, RockAsphalt© stands out as the best ready-to-use asphalt on the market.

What is RockAsphalt©

RockAsphalt© is known for its durability, reliability, and cleanliness and is also frequently used by organizations for road repairs such as potholes, trench cuts, ADA levels ups, new road construction, and more. This natural limestone rock asphalt (also known as LRA) guarantees that these repairs will last, reducing the liabilities and risks of using manufactured asphalt.

Hot mix asphalt has been the preferred material for permanent road repairs due to its durability. However, its weather restrictions force public works departments to rely on temporary, manufactured cold patches to keep up with road repairs when the temperature drops.

Cold patch asphalt repair is designed to be used at lower temperatures than traditional hot mix asphalt. Unlike hot mix asphalt, which requires heating the material to high temperatures to make it fluid, cold patch asphalt is produced and applied at ambient temperatures. For this reason, cold patch asphalt repairs are meant to be temporary solutions, as they don’t offer the durability of hot mix asphalt.

We offer a permanent solution that works in any weather. The material’s stability and bond remain intact even in wet or sub-zero conditions. When it comes to pothole repairs, natural asphalt remains reliable in snow, heat, and rain, whereas manufactured mixes cannot.

Benefits of using RockAsphalt© for Pothole Repairs

If you’re looking for a reliable and durable material for your road construction or repair projects, RockAsphalt© is the way to go. Most asphalt patches can’t withstand the constant weight of traffic and eventually fail, meaning more work for you and your road crew. With its three-year warranty, you can rest assured that your investment is well protected. Additionally, you can maximize your budget with 76% more coverage than traditional materials while enjoying an unparalleled performance in all weather conditions.

Permanent Asphalt Repair Guaranteed

Repairing a single pothole can equal the cost of paving an entire road without the right material and maintenance. Our three-year installed warranty protects our customers’ investments, so you can focus on road work rather than rework.

Maximize Your Budget with More Coverage

Our natural asphalt fills two times the volume and number of potholes compared to cold patch asphalt, which can weigh up to 76% more per cubic yard than our natural asphalt. The binding additives in cold patches are heavier, causing them to cost more. We know the performance is what matters to you, not the weight.

Unparalleled Quality and Performance

There’s a reason state DOTs and municipalities have trusted RockAsphalt© since 1895:

    • Exceeds industry standards
    • Field and lab tested
    • Consistent quality control
