Updated: Sep 28
As we approach the colder months, preparation for winter road maintenance becomes not just important but imperative. For industry professionals and those who frequently navigate the roads, the adverse effects of winter on roadways are well understood. The plummeting temperatures, freezing rain, and snow can make asphalt-based repairs difficult or, in many cases, impossible.
American Road Patch offerers a multitude of uses to ensure road safety and longevity:
1. Permanent Pothole Repair
Potholes are a nightmare for drivers and a liability for road managers. American Road Patch provides a permanent solution, ensuring a smoother ride and reduced wear and tear on vehicles.

Sealing utility cuts prevents water intrusion and further degradation, making American Road Patch an excellent choice for utility workers and road professionals.
5. Sealing around Water Utility Lids
Protecting water utility access points is crucial. American Road Patch provides an effective seal, ensuring no unwanted water or debris makes its way in.
