Right at the end of my driveway, there is a pothole in the road that my wife and I run over every day, which obviously isn’t good for our cars. I’ve attempted to repair the pothole several times without any luck. What am I doing wrong?
First of all, you’re not alone when it comes to this problem. In fact, there are about 500,000 insurance claims filed each year because of potholes and we want to keep you off that list. Whether you’re dealing with a concrete or asphalt pothole, the most critical step is squaring off the edges before pouring the repair material. If the edges aren’t properly prepared, it’s likely that over time the repair material will become dislodged due to vehicle traffic and you’re back at square one.
