Why did you stop at the cul-de-sacs?

Tandem axle, double tire, garbage trucks make sharp turns in cul-de-sac bubbles and cut into a fresh seal coat thereby peeling up large sections of the surface. This is especially true in hotter weather. We will come back later with a different process to treat those areas. This other process is called a fog seal. Fog seals work better with the heavy, slow-speed turns at the end of the street.
