How a small, rural community’s asphalt patch repair shop saved its life

Asphalt patches are one of the most common roadside repairs people do to prevent erosion.

They’re also one of their most expensive, so they’re the one that can save the most money, says Mike Hagerty, who owns a local patch shop in the small town of Rockland, Maine.

HagerTY’s patch repair business, The Patch Repair, has been around for more than a decade.

Hagers patches are repaired by his brother, who lives in Rockland.

They have the same patchwork as most other patch repair businesses.

Haters often call the Hagers patch repair shops the “blacktop” in the town, which is a nod to the area’s blacktop rock formation.

The blacktop is the layer of rock that forms around the edge of the earth and can be thousands of feet thick.

Hanging from the edge is the blacktop sandstone.

“We have a lot of sandstone on our land, so we call it the blacktops,” Hagertys brother said.

“They’re not really a good surface for asphalt.

You can actually make a difference in the soil.”

HagerTys patch repair service has been in operation since 2005.

His brother, Mike, and his business partner, David Furlong, have been repairing asphalt patches for years, with a big focus on maintaining a strong footing.

Mike says that while his brother’s patch business is a great one to do business with, it’s not for everyone.

“If you’re looking to fix asphalt patches that are not very strong and that’s not going to be the way that you can do it, we don’t offer those services,” he said.

Hangerty says that although the business has been successful in Rock, Maine, he thinks it’s important for people to know that patch repair is important.

“It’s not something that’s easy, it takes a lot to be successful,” Hangery said.

A couple of years ago, Mike’s patch shop, which sells about 20 patches per day, closed.

The business has since been re-opened and has since added about 50 new patches.

When it comes to the cost of repairing asphalt, Hagerts family has been able to maintain a small patch shop for a very long time.

“Our income is going to come out of the patching business and we’re able to cover a lot more of our costs because we’ve been able, and we’ve had to, do it our way,” he says.

“A lot of the business that we do now has been a lot less profitable, but the way we’ve done it is a lot cheaper than other businesses.”

The Patch Service’s owner and a few of his patch workers were in Rock and Maine at the beginning of June to celebrate their 25th anniversary.

“That’s a great time of year,” he told ABC News.

“I think it’s very rewarding.”
