It’s no surprise that Connecticut towns in the area receive a lot of weather-related damage. And your pavement is no exception. Waterbury gets an average of 52” of rain per year over 37″ of snow which is more than the national average. Water from storms or flooding can penetrate the surface of asphalt and, if not addressed quickly, begin to erode the base layer. A cold patch repair can be a way to forestall further damage until you can schedule a permanent repair.
