How To Repair Potholes

Learning how to repair potholes can be a very profitable thing to do. Potholes are an inevitable part of life and as long as there are roads and people to drive on them, there will be people in need of pothole repair services. If you're thinking of becoming a pothole patcher you might be wondering what the process actually entails.

The Pothole Repair Process

The pothole repair process consists of: cleaning the area that needs to be patched, heating the asphalt, raking and rejuvenating the repair area, adding new hot patch asphalt, leveling the asphalt, compacting the area, cooling down the asphalt, and cleaning up. Depending on what methods and equipment you use, this could take anywhere from twenty minutes to 48 hours. You'll find that some equipment can be operated with a two man crew while others take up to four people.

For those of you who are considering a career in asphalt repair, why not go into business for yourself? Our company offers franchising opportunities that can help you get started. Dr. Pothole franchises receive all of the equipment and training needed to run a successful pothole repair company.

Pothole Repair Training

Our franchises receive four weeks of professional training with a franchise manager and an asphalt repair crew. You'll learn how to repair apartment complexes, office parks, shopping centers, roads, driveways, and much more. After your four week training period you will easily be able to handle any pothole repair job in your market.

Pothole Repair Equipment

We recognize that all the training in the world can't help a pothole repair crew if they don't have any pothole repair equipment. All of our franchises receive all of the equipment necessary to efficiently and effectively repair any pothole they may encounter. Many other companies sell pothole repair equipment, but they do not train their buyers how to use them. In addition to this, other companies provide professional pothole repair training, but they do not provide the equipment. We proudly provide you with both so that you can hit the ground running.

Furthermore, our equipment is far superior to the relics many asphalt repair companies are currently using. This is because we use advanced infrared heating technology that allow our crews to operate with only two people. Using only a two person crew, our franchises can effectively patch a pothole within a time period of twenty minutes. Contact us today for more information on becoming a part of the Dr. Pothole family.
