Considering that roads experience a lot of wear and tear, it’s essential to invest in proper maintenance. If you don’t prioritize treating uneven pavement, it can lead to potential problems for both people and vehicles. If the base of the road is still in good condition, you may be in luck because with the correct treatment, such as creating a roadway shim, you can have your road back to normal.
At UNIQUE Paving Materials, we are dedicated to providing products known for their adaptability and ease of use. This way, you can take care of all of your road repair needs quickly and efficiently.
What Is a Roadway Shim and Why You Should Choose UNIQUE Paving Materials
One of the common treatments to help preserve your road is called a shim. You may wonder “what is a roadway shim?” and it’s essentially a temporary repair measure. It’s typically a repair that is used when the road is in a state of failure and needs immediate attention. It would be the first step before a permanent roadway project is completed. So, by using a roadway shim, you can continue ongoing traffic for the time being while planning more major repair work.
Our products at UNIQUE can also act as a temporary barrier, being used to create a roadway shim. One of our products, the UPM® Cold Mix, is ideal for this application and in many instances can act as a long-term solution for these types of repairs. By choosing this product for your road treatment, you’ll see benefits including:
- All-weather workability
- Improving the safety and appearance of streets
- No primer or tacking materials required
- Helping reduce further potholes and unwanted road damage
- Roads can be used immediately after repair
- Eliminating costs associated with repeat repairs
In addition to our UPM® Cold Mix, we offer other products that can also be utilized for a project depending on your situation, including:
