Alligator asphalt cracking: Why does it happen

Pavement fatigue cracking, also known as alligator cracking due to the similarities in appearance it has with an alligator’s skin, can be caused by a number of factors. The most common cause of fatigue cracking is usually the pavement was not designed or installed thick enough to withstand the current use.

Your pavement could be experiencing this due to the following:

  • Surpassed its life span
  • Has lost its ability to expand and contract during the freeze and thaw cycle during the winter season

Either of these cases can cause serious liabilities for your business. At S&G we will correct this and make sure that this does not happen.
