As the seasons change, so do the challenges faced by roads and pavements. "Pothole season," a common term in regions with fluctuating temperatures, refers to the period when potholes form due to the freeze-thaw cycle. This is where Max-A-Patch ACP comes in as a game-changer.
Understanding Pothole Season
Pothole season typically occurs in late winter and early spring. Water seeping into the pavement freezes, expands, and then thaws, weakening the road structure. The pressure from vehicles then causes these weakened areas to collapse, forming potholes.
