R & R Patching
Remove & Replace involves saw cutting beyond the deteriorated or broken asphalt. The material is then removed and the base is repaired. Once the new base has been compacted the vertical surfaces are cleaned, tacked and the area filled with hot mix asphalt, which is then compacted.
Skin patching is applied over your existing asphalt. A tack coat is applied to the repair area first and then patched with surface asphalt mix.
Cold patch is usually applied directly to potholes with little or no preparation work. Cold patch repairs are normally used for an emergency short term fix.
