We have great news for you!

It’s never too late with SOS My Potholes.

You can use our asphalt cold based system for pothole repairs in any temperature and in all weather conditions.

There is nothing more frustrating than when you are driving and hit a bump or a hole and realize that you’ve just hit a pothole.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve hit a pothole on a road, parking lot, or driveway; they are threat to your vehicle, especially towards the tires and shock absorbers. If a pothole is not repaired properly the first time, the area may collapse again. Also, if you leave these craters unrepaired, in addition to damaging vehicles, potholes are also dangerous for pedestrians walking in this area. Permanent pothole repair are essential to maintaining the asphalt on your residential, commercial, and institutional properties.

How do potholes form? Water is essentially the root cause.
While water is the most common, there are also oils and other fluids from vehicles causing serious damage to roads and parking lots.
In order to understand how liquids damage asphalt, it is important to understand what it is made of.
Asphalt pavement consists of stone (aggregate), sand, additives, and bituminous liquids (petroleum). Liquid asphalt, a black, sticky substance, is used as a binder in pavements. It is viscous in nature and can also be found in semi-solid forms. Bitumen is another common term for asphalt. The binder is basically the glue that holds the asphalt together. Over time, the binder can wear out and break. This happens when heavy vehicles drive over asphalt, causing compression and decompression. Combine this with the natural expansion and contraction thanks to climate change, and tiny cracks form between the binder and the aggregate. These tiny cracks let water in.
Once the water gets in, it's the beginning of the end for asphalt.
Water enters tiny cracks and then begins to expand and contract as the weather changes. Even if you don’t live in a place with a freeze-thaw cycle, water expands when the temperature changes, say from day to night or from season to season. The expanding water enlarges the cracks. Eventually, the cracks will reach the deepest parts of the asphalt, the base and even under the asphalt. Water everywhere on the road causes even more expansion and contraction. When heavy vehicles move on water damaged pavement, they exert enough pressure on it to wipe and crush large chunks of asphalt. As a result, potholes are formed.
If you notice any damage to the pavement, you should immediately deal with the situation, as potholes can spread.
A small pothole repair now can help you avoid, or at least postpone, a massive pavement repair later. Large repairs cost a lot of time and money, so save both by taking care of your asphalt immediately. But how can you fix them permanently in mid-January? Don’t worry, we have the solution. To prevent damage to vehicles and eliminate the risk of tripping and falling, SOS My Potholes will provide you with the permanent solution with high quality materials for a job well done.
There are two different ways to fix potholes; temporary cold patch repairs, or permanent repairs either with hot asphalt in the summer or with our Instarmac cold bitumen system. Why the two methods?

You can’t always make a permanent pothole repair with hot asphalt during cold periods or in winter. In some cases, with the old methods, you will need to do a temporary repair on the asphalt until you are ready for a permanent repair. That is why we, SOS My Potholes, only use Instarmac permanent repair product, which can be applied 12 months a year in all weather conditions.

If you have potholes on your property that you need to fill in, you will probably want to get it done right.
