Permanent Repairs to Asphalt Potholes

Potholes can be permanently repaired with QUIKRETE Commercial Grade High Performance Blacktop Repair, providing a new driving surface.

Project Instructions:
When working with asphalt-based products, always wear eye protection and waterproof gloves.

Step 1:
Square the pothole edges as much as possible and pour the repair material into the hole (overfill the hole about 2 to 3 inches above the surrounding asphalt).

Step 2:
Consolidate and compact the Blacktop Repair with a tamper until a firm surface is achieved.

NOTE: to further compact the repair material, place a piece of plywood over the patch and slowly drive over the plywood with a vehicle tire.
