Asphalt is a material made of brownish-black liquid petroleum that hardens when cooled. Over time, it can wear out and that’s when imperfections like potholes or cracks appear that need to be repaired as quickly as possible.
Potholes are faults located on the surface of the pavement. It is a portion of the asphalt that has been removed from the original construction. They are generally generated by fatigue due to heavy traffic, humidity due to rain, surface shelling or excess vehicular traffic.
There are different types of potholes or cracks and they can be classified as low severity, medium severity or high severity depending on the depth with which they have hit the asphalt.
