Wisconsin roads take a beating. Wear and tear from heavy traffic and weather often leave streets and highways with cracks and potholes. With the drastic fluctuations in temperature and weather conditions, even the smallest breach can open roadways to future damage and costly repairs. Most damage appears in late winter or early spring as a result of the constant freezing and melting, which weakens pavement. Typically, you’ll want to address the problem right away because small cracks and holes are relatively easy to repair. When cracks and potholes are left season after season without attention, not only do they become larger, they can also cause serious damage to the structural integrity of the sub base. To avoid costly repairs and future headaches, damages should be dealt with immediately.
