Is your current pavement serviceable, but in need of a fresh new coat? An asphalt overlay sounds like it may do the job.
Asphalt overlays are a method of paving 2” of new asphalt over the existing asphalt. Overlays extend the life of pavement that is still in serviceable condition. Overlays are particularly useful, when the existing asphalt is inadequate in depth. Overlays are a popular approach because of their value.
The existing asphalt should be in serviceable condition.
Overlays work best when there is a solid subgrade and an adequate asphalt base course to support the new asphalt.
How will the overlay impact drainage? Most overlays will not correct major drainage issues.
The depth and number of cracks in the existing asphalt. Cracks may reflect through the new overlay in time. Deep cracks may need to be repaired prior to an overlay.
Pavement failures need to be repaired prior to overlays.
Ask your DACS consultant during your free estimate about edge milling to better blend to the existing layout.
Mill and Overlay
Looking for a cost-effective solution to full removal and replacement of your asphalt? Look no further.
Mill and Overlay is the process of removing the worn top layer of the existing asphalt and then paving 2” of new asphalt on top.
Mill and Overlay is best used if the current asphalt is at least 6” deep.
Mill and Overlay is used in parking lots and streets in an effort to extend the life of the asphalt using the structure of the existing base course, the surface course is removed and replaced.
This may be more cost-effective solution than performing a full depth asphalt removal and replacement, provided the base course is a strong stable structure.
Mill and Overlay has its limitations and can only be done before any significant damage to the parking lot has occurred.
Full Depth Asphalt Reconstruction
Is your parking lot or roadway in need of being replaced? Let’s talk full depth asphalt reconstruction.
Full depth reconstruction is what it sounds like, full replacement of the existing asphalt. There are often subgrade issues or traffic load changes that lead to the failure of the asphalt. In this case, the entire area is removed and new subgrade material is installed prior to new asphalt pavement.
Full Depth Asphalt Reconstruction Considerations
Depth of excavation
Use of ground stabilization fabric
Asphalt pavement thickness
