Infrared Repair

Time and weather can take a toll on asphalt. What once was a beautiful pavement surface can become damaged from years of freeze and thaw cycles in Minnesota’s tough winters. At J&W, we understand the importance of providing beautiful, durable repairs to last for many years, not just a quick and dirty surface repair.

We use infrared repair for all of our asphalt paving repair services to provide you with a lasting repair that will restore your pavement to a smooth, durable surface you can be proud of.

How Infrared Repair Works

Using infrared technology, we heat up the existing damaged asphalt to make it workable again. Next, our crews add in more oils and binders along with more hot mix asphalt. We then level and roll the asphalt, a process that binds the new and original asphalts together and restores your pavement to its original height. The newly repaired pavement will bond to existing asphalt thermally, creating a seamless, beautiful repair.

Benefits of Infrared Repair

Traditional repairs leave an unsightly milling line, also known as a cut line. Water can intrude in this line, causing eventual damage. An infrared repair completely fixes the problem without creating any new ones. We stand behind all our infrared repairs with a two-year warranty.

Infrared repair is:

  • Environmentally friendly
  • Economically smart
  • Minimally invasive
