Useful FAQs About Pothole Repair

Netbiz ✈️ |

Pothole Repair is one of the most common highway repair jobs done in the west. Not only does it keep road surfaces looking as pristine as possible, but it also has a measured effect on the number of accidents. As such, we recommend that potholes are repaired as soon as they appear.

Can You Repair Potholes Yourself?

Of course, you can!

Well, sort of.

Generally speaking, most people don’t have the equipment to repair potholes using hot asphalt. But many companies offer an easy-to-use range of products known as Cold Patch Repair.

Cold Seal Repair is a batch of pre-mixed asphalt which can be poured into a pothole and then packed as tight as possible. This fills up the pothole and fixes up the problem. However, Cold Seal Repair is only a temporary solution because this repair has not been sealed. In order to fix this problem, BituChem offers ColdSeal – a do-it-yourself product that allows you to top off Cold Seal work and protect it. This is a totally unique product that you will only find at BituChem.

How Much Does it Cost to Repair Potholes?

Have you ever wondered how much it costs to repair potholes?

Depending on the size and location of the pothole, the material used, and the impetus behind the repair work, the costs to repair can vary from £46 on average for planned pothole repair work to £71 for reactive repair work. On average, there is a 35% difference between costs. These numbers have been pulled from the 2022 ALARM survey.

As a result, we recommend that you undertake planned, periodic repairs to your road surfacing rather than impromptu reactive repair work. Not only will this keep costs down, but it will ensure that your property is kept in a good state of repair.
