Dig out any remaining excess of rock, dirt, and debris. Use a high-performance blacktop repair, which is a mix of stone and asphalt binder to fill in the hole. Put it down in 1.5-inch-thick layers and smooth it out. Compact each layer until the patch meets the edges.
How to Fix Potholes?
Potholes are a common problem found on roads and highways all around the world. They are caused by excessive wear and tear of the pavement surface, often from heavy vehicles and weathering.
Potholes can cause serious damage to vehicles and can be dangerous for drivers and pedestrians. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to fix potholes, ranging from simple DIY solutions to more complex solutions that require the help of a professional.
The first step to fixing potholes is to assess the damage. Start by examining the size and depth of the pothole. If the pothole is only a few inches deep and wide, you may be able to fix it yourself with a few simple materials.
You will need a shovel, cold patch asphalt, and a tamping tool. Begin by clearing away any loose debris or gravel from the pothole.
Then, fill the hole with a layer of cold patch asphalt and use the tamping tool to compact the asphalt into the hole. Repeat this process until the hole is filled.
If the pothole is more than a few inches deep, it will require a more extensive repair. Begin by using a jackhammer to break away the asphalt around the pothole until you reach solid ground.
