Permanent Pothole Repair: The Best Way to Ensure Road and Car Park Safety
Potholes are a common occurrence on roads, car parks and footpaths, and they can cause a variety of problems for drivers and pedestrians. A permanent pothole repair is most likely the best way to ensure road and car park safety.
Potholes can cause damage to vehicles, create a hazard for drivers, and reduce the overall safety of the road. Fortunately, there are a variety of ways to repair potholes, both temporary and permanent, that can help keep roads and car parks safe and free from damage, and you from a costly compensation claim.
The damage caused by potholes soon adds up, with millions of drivers affected every year and in 2019/20, pothole-related repairs cost local authorities nearly £6m in paid claims!
Permanent Pothole Repairs
Fixing potholes permanently is a much better option than a temporary fix. Potholes can be a major safety hazard, so it is essential that they are fixed and maintained properly.
With a permanent fix, the pothole is repaired with a durable material such as our Environmental Road Polymer environmental repair (ERPT) and is designed to last and can withstand high traffic volumes. Permanent fixes ensure that the potholes will not reappear any time soon, saving time and money in the long run. In addition, a permanent fix can help to improve the overall look and feel of your estate, making it more visually appealing.
Temporary Pothole Repairs
A temporary pothole repair should only be used when a permanent fix is unavailable or isn’t suitable, as it will only last a short time before reappearing. We often hear how temporary repairs only last a few days, and so they really are a false economy.
