The intent of crack sealing is to eliminate open areas where water and moisture can penetrate to the substrate beneath the road surface. When that happens, it can cause soil destabilization, which can lead to roadway issues like potholes, excessive cracking and heaving or sinking of the roads themselves.  This process protects and extends the lives of our roadways.
