With all the rain and bad weather, our Island asphalt has taken a beating! Look around and see the damage and be sure to do maintenance before it gets worse!

Walker-Moody Construction, which specializes in asphalt maintenance, can take any driveway, commercial property or road and give the existing asphalt or concrete a fresh look. Clean, crackfill, seal coat/slurry, stripe. And with more than 117 years of service in Hawaii under its belt, Walker-Moody Construction has the experience to get the job done.

So what are you waiting for? Sometimes when you look at your asphalt or concrete, you may feel like it’s in good shape. But if there’s cracking, you shouldn’t let it go untreated!

The best time for sealing is as soon as possible after a crack develops. A crack can continue to widen, so crack sealing must continue to be effective. Failure to seal cracks properly may lead to further and more severe pavement damage from water intrusion.

Walker-Moody Construction is an authorized installer of SealMaster Hawaii. SealMaster offers a variety of coldor hot-applied products to seal what you have. Sealing cracks with SealMaster products is relatively simple and inexpensive, and can delay major maintenance if used properly.

To repair cracks in your pavement or concrete, here are a couple of steps:

• First, you need to clean the cracks so they are free of grass or any other loose debris.

• Second, make sure the surface is dry.

• Third, apply cold crack filler such as Acrylic Crack Filler (1 gallon) or hot crack filler such as CrackMaster PL (flexible parking lot formula). If a cold filler is applied, it needs to cure for a couple of hours. But if a hot filler is used, the area can be opened for vehicular traffic within five minutes.
