When analyzing your current project, there may come a break-even point where fixing several problem areas will cost as much as a new overlay or a removal and replacement. We will make sure you know all your options to give you the best result for the least amount of money. The process typically involves milling the surface of the existing pavement and then applying a tack coat adhesive. Our team of specialists will then put down a leveling course of asphalt, followed by the overlay. Then we grind out or break away existing asphalt and haul it away. In some cases, we may need to redo the subgrade to strengthen the foundation. The new or existing base is then rolled to grade, which will help with water drainage and preservation of the new asphalt. After the base is compacted, we apply a new layer of fresh asphalt and roll it to specified thickness, leaving you with a fresh new lot.
When Would A Full Asphalt Replacement Be Necessary?
Normally this will be determined during the inspection process. When you look at your asphalt now, is it: dried out, oxidized, cracked and falling apart to the point where an asphalt overlay would be like putting a Band-Aid on a large open wound? In that case, it is a wise decision to remove the material and reinstall a stable subgrade. A patch repair or seal coating or will cost you less in the short term, but if the lot is beyond repair this will only delay the inevitable and the pavement will fail soon. In the long run, it is cheaper to replace the lot and plan a pavement maintenance program that is within your budget,
