What Is the Best Time of Year to Repair an Asphalt Crack?

An asphalt crack.

If you need to repair an asphalt crack in your driveway, you may want to take a few minutes to plan the best time of year to do it. Here are a few things that you will want to consider.


Temperature is a huge factor when it comes to repairing the cracks in your asphalt. Check and make sure that you are finding a time during the year where the temperature is above 50 degrees Fahrenheit at least and below about 75 degrees Fahrenheit. While you do not want the temperature to be too cold where it cracks and freezes, you also do not want it to be so warm that it will not set.


The weather is also a big factor when it comes to finding the right time to repair asphalt cracks. Be sure that the day you are filling in the cracks as well as the next two to three days does not call for rain or snow. The best time for most climates to repair the asphalt cracks is typically between May and October.
