The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Research Council’s Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) Report deems spray injection patching as “the most economical and longest lasting method of pothole repair.” This is primarily due to the benefit of having a single operator and the average patch lasting 4-7 years.

A more recent report by the Minnesota Department of Transportation conducted a present worth analysis of spray patching vs. traditional “throw and roll” and found the cost of spray patching to be 1/3 the cost ($2.31 per patch vs. $7.17 per patch), again due to lower labor and the fact that spray injection lasted 4 years compared to throw and roll patches having to be refilled annually due to wash out from weather.
