When it comes to patching an area of asphalt, using an infrared heater for the job can be a great option for you. Here are a few reasons to look into an infrared repair instead of a traditional one:

  • Smaller work crew needed
  • Less new material needed (existing material used)
  • Less time required
  • More economical
  • Higher customer satisfaction

Now, let’s take a look at these reasons in more detail.

Using a heater to fix a problem area in your asphalt can repair that area back to like-new condition. It will make a watertight seal since there are no cold joints (that means no water getting in, freezing, expanding, and worsening the damage). You also won’t have to worry about the patched area settling any further, it will remain as-is after the repair.

Along with being more economical than a standard asphalt repair, using an infrared heater can also be a faster way to take care of the problem (approximately 25 minutes for a repair.) For commercial repairs, faster patching means less labor costs, and less interruption to traffic flow. There is also a higher customer satisfaction rating on the heater-made repairs — partly due to the time it takes to complete it, and partly due to the quality of the resulting job.
