Utility Cuts

Whether for pipe, cabling, or other utility purposes, cutting into the pavement leaves small nicks, trenches, or holes in the surface of pavement. This creates points of penetration for moisture and incompressible debris, which can cause damage to the base and widening cracks.

Pavement cuts which are not sealed will allow water penetration and damage to the base and surface materials. Cuts may produce cracks, which will widen, and voids, potholes, raveling, and other surface distress may appear.
