Asphalt Repair & Milling

Asphalt Repair

Maintaining the quality of your asphalt involves staying on top of the repair process. Whether it’s on a commercial parking lot or a roadway, proper maintenance procedures ensure you get the most out of an asphalt installation.

Common asphalt issues that need repair include potholes, spiderweb cracks, and sink holes. Repairing them involves removing dirt and dust as well as vegetation before repairing them.

Cutting, Removal & Replacement

Cutting
It’s possible that you may not be able to repair your asphalt surface due to a sinkhole or indent more than a couple of inches. That means to continue using the area, you may have to cut out, remove, and replace the existing pavement.
Removal
Not every asphalt application is worth, and sometimes replacing it is the more sensible solution. Typical signs that your asphalt needs removing include standing water, raveling, severe cracking, missing pieces, and old age.
Replacement

Instead of addressing the problems individually, consider that it may be time to replace your asphalt. Severe wear typically occurs after about 10 or 15 years. It makes more sense to start fresh rather than continually applying bandaids.

Milling & Wedging

Pavement milling, or cold planning, involves removing parts of a paved surface, such as a parking lot or road. Milling can remove just the surface of the pavement or the entire depth of the material. 

Wedging is used for trip hazard repair and to improve drainage in your parking lot. Tripping hazards occur over time and in older parking lots due to uneven integration of the asphalt to concrete gutters, sidewalks, or other structures.

Trench Repair
Trenches along roads, sidewalks, highways, or driveways are most affected by water from asphalt surfaces. Over time, the trenches tend to wear out. When utility lines below an existing pavement surface need to be fixed or installed, there is typically a need for urgency. We understand your needs and can assist when you needit.
Skin Patching
Asphalt skin patching is an economical asphalt repair option for paving that does not require extensive repair or replacement. Skin patching involves covering small damaged areas with new asphalt material. The process consists in identifying the area(s) that can expertly be repaired with skin patching, laying the new asphalt material and leveling the ground using special construction tools and equipment like vibratory rollers and vibra-tamping compactors.
