To resolve potholes professionals can take a few different steps to rectify the faulty pavement. The first option is to remove the cracked and defaulted pavement. Taking away the cracks and the holes that can be spread with water will take away the worry of further spread. Next the new asphalt is poured and compacted to create a sturdy new paving surface. The other fix is to use infrared technology. When infrared heats up the flawed pavement it creates a soft moldable pavement. The next steps are to add additional hot asphalt to the space and spread and compact to create a newly perfected pavement surface.
