Asphalt paving is any road surface that is paved with asphalt. One way in which asphalt is used is for overlays (also referred to as “capping” or “resurfacing”). Instead of completely removing the existing pavement, this process uses the existing base, and places a new layer of asphalt over a deteriorating surface.
In some cases where the deterioration is more pronounced (such as potholes, large cracks, or ruts), the surface will first need to be milled. This process uses an asphalt milling machine that grinds down the surface until a majority of the damage has been evened out. From there, it can then be repaired without having to do a complete replacement of the base area.
Next, asphalt paving can be used for removal and replacement. This process requires the entire existing surface (including base layers) to be removed and is then replaced with all new asphalt. This practice is commonly used for residential driveways and commercial parking lots. You will also see asphalt being used for new construction.
Lastly, you’ll commonly find asphalt used during catch basin repair and for speed bumps. Catch basins are a planned drainage structure that collects rain water and snow melt run-off from parking lots and streets and routes them to the appropriate waterway through culverts, drainage ditches, and underground pipes. Sometimes, these drainage ways will also need repaired, and our team of specialists is trained to efficiently replace these systems in-line with the rest of the work.
Asphalt speed-bumps are the most common kind of speed bump and are used to help reduce speed in parking lots and specific roadways such as in private driveways and homeowners associations. These can be very effective in slowing traffic and increasing safety.
