27 November 2018 - Pavement repairs

in #homesteading3 years ago



I know, normal people do this sort of thing in the Summer. Not me - I was too busy. Or too lazy. Or, perhaps, both.

Either way, I only got around to it now when it is only slightly above freezing. To get the job done, I got two 50 lb (22.5 kg) bags of all-weather pothole patch compound and spread it to fix some broken asphalt in the parking area.

This is going to be a test. If it works well, I am going to try and patch the rest of the area that needs patching using the same method.

Thanks. I hope so too.
The patch solution is rated down to 5F (-15C) so it should work, in theory.

Of course, this repair is better to do in warm weather, but if you use cold-resistant mixture, then everything can go well!

That's exactly what I am doing - the mixture is rated down to 5F/-15C, so hopefully that will work.

Not much fun no matter what time of year! I have very little knowledge of it, but around here I see construction crews using some mixture, then using big infrared heaters to melt and then roll with the little roller vehicles. Will be interested to see how this holds up for you so I can maybe try some small repairs myself next year.

good job,God help you.

Ну у нас регулярно кладут асфальт зимой, почему и тебе не попробовать? ))

У вас горячий асфальт кладут (у нас тоже иногда). Это - холодная смоляная/битумная смесь. И покупать битумный котел, как ты понимаешь, у меня особого желания нет:)

А при горячей укладке должно быть легче - как минимум, вся влага по крайней мере изначально просто испаряется при контакте со смесью с температурой градусов в 150 (если не путаю).

Но пока что вроде как более-менее нормально моя заплатка держится.
