If you have an existing blacktop driveway, parking area, or other space, you are already ahead of the game. Our crews are well versed in the art of taking your old, beat up asphalt areas and transforming them into gorgeous, silky smooth surfaces that will perform beautifully for decades to come.
The Art of Asphalt Removal
Asphalt or concrete removal begins with on-site excavation of the subgrade. The existing material is then replaced with proper base materials that meet all current industry standards. It is essential for the subgrade to shaped and leveled accurately, as imperfections below could translate into unwanted variations on the surface above once finished. Proper drainage is also factored into the leveling process before the subgrade is compacted. The final step involves the application of a new asphalt pad which is rolled to a flawless conclusion, both aesthetically and functionally.
Overlay Asphalt Repair
If an existing, paved asphalt surface requires rehabilitation, a common method is to apply what is called an ‘overlay’, in essence a fresh layer of asphalt over an existing surface. Generally less expensive than complete replacement, this technique may be slightly less durable but can last for many years with proper care. This bituminous makeover involves cleaning the existing pavement, formatting the edges of the space and repairing any major fissures, voids or damage. Once the new layer of asphalt is applied, the end result looks no different than a brand new job, and will prevent further deterioration of the original condition.
Quite often, "patching" implies simply filling a hole with appropriate material and calling it a day. This is not how we "roll!" Compromised areas of a driveway or parking lot are excised in their entirety, making the forthcoming patch integrity far superior to just applying a filler. Once the target area has been excavated, filled with gravel and compacted, a new layer of asphalt is added and rolled to blend in with the remaining pavement.
