Asphalt concrete crack repair just got orders of magnitude easier: Pavemade’s latest innovation, Self Adhesive TARR TAPE, gives everyone from pavement maintenance operators to homeowners a simple and effective solution to crack filling and sealing of damaged pavement and asphalt roofs.
Shelly McAdam, CEO of Pavemade, has once again made it simple and fast for property owners of all types to retain the maximum value in their properties by healing any damage as soon as it occurs. Self Adhesive TARR TAPE has been specifically engineered to effectively fill and seal cracks in pavement or leaks in asphalt roofs.
Shelly McAdam, CEO of Pavemade, has officially put the asphalt and concrete maintenance industry on notice: Maintenance operators do not have to spend thousands of dollars to repair asphalt cracks or join concrete. Expensive, slow, and large volume crack fill machines will be as outdated as typewriters are today. What is the multiplier effect of freeing operators with a fast DYI tape for road maintenance? It’s difficult to say, but one study estimated traffic congestion from poor infrastructure costs the economy over $120 billion per year.
The biggest threat to your home or driveway is the “universal solvent” also known as water. Failure to spend $1 today in driveway repair typically results in $7 of cost five years later. If you delay until alligator cracks cover your driveway your rebuilding costs will be 14 times your repair costs. As soon as water gets into a cracked driveway or a leaky roof the damage is going to get worse. The average cost to repair a water damaged home is $6,965. Don’t wait for the contractor to show up, take immediate action to limit the damage by using TARR TAPE to waterproof and seal.
If water doesn’t concern you, then trip-and-fall accidents should, they are a large part of what constitutes premises liability lawsuits, an area of personal injury law that keeps lawyers paid and insurance companies dodging. Both public and private properties are subject to lawsuits that claim the property owner failed to uphold a “standard of care” in maintaining walkways, driveways and parking lots in their charge. If you think your insurance policy has you covered, think again: cracks that pop-up overnight are considered the fault of the policyholder. If a crack is allowed to persist, it’s a lawsuit waiting to happen. Just in time sealing with TARR TAPE will do more for you and your cracked driveway than your insurance policy will.
We’ve come to believe that there’s little we can do ourselves to care for our roads and roofs, and we end up paying for it. Pavemade’s mission is to empower individual property owners to act quickly and with ease in protecting the value in their property.
As Shelly McAdam has stated “What’s the cost of fixing a pothole? $6.1 million is how much the city of Los Angeles will have to pay a motorcyclist who crashed due to negligent maintenance of their roads. Do you want to gamble like that with every crack and pothole you have? This is something every city, school district, church, and private property owner needs to contend with.”
How does TARR TAPE work? If you have ever used a bandaid you will know how to use TARR TAPE. Simply peel the non-stick backing from the tape and adhere it to the road surface or roof. TARR TAPE's adhesive rubberized asphalt bonds directly with the cracks to seal out any moisture, hence preventing water damage. When it comes to road and roof repair Self Adhesive TARR TAPE provides the strongest chemical bonding force for your existing road or roof surface. We also recommend cleaning cracks or roof leaks to rid of moisture absorbed by cracks and provide a perfect bond between the TARR TAPE and the existing cracks.
