Asphalt milling entails crushing the asphalt on a surface to produce an even and smooth surface that makes it easier to repave. The level of grinding ranges between a few inches and a full-depth removal.
It is no secret that the process of asphalt pavement has been in use for ages. It is one of the oldest development techniques.
On the other hand, asphalt milling is a fairly new urban development technology. Its use started in the late 70s. The entry of new equipment has transformed it into a reliable solution for paving contractors who seek to provide restorations in a sustainable and low-cost way.
Reasonably Priced Pavement Restoration
Asphalt milling is the most economical option for pavements that exhibit extensive damage in the form of raveling, cracking or irregular slopes. In this case, the sub-base of the structure is still intact.
Our team does not need to demolish the sub-base for the purpose of repaving. To conduct the repairs, all affected layers are carefully extracted using a milling machine. This procedure is followed by replacing the missing parts with fresh hot-mix.
What Issues Are Addressed By Asphalt Milling?
The height and drainage of the pavement
You might think to go for an overlay when considering ways of restoring the surface on your pavement. It is good to note that the overlay introduces an extra layer to the asphalt that already exists on the pavement.
Every time the overlay is applied, the resulting height is higher than the previous one. It is a situation that is similar to repainting walls over and over. At some point, you will have no option other than removing the original paint.
If your paved structure has numerous overlay applications, introducing additional height will lead to complications.
Asphalt milling is the revolutionary way of restoring the look of your pavement without having any implications on height. This prevents problems with the drainage system that is installed.
It is a product that helps take care of the environment
The process entails milling asphalt from the surface. Once this is done, the asphalt is collected and recycled into aggregate. This aggregate can be reused as new hot-mix asphalt. This sustainable production process has made asphalt one of the most valuable and widely reused recyclable construction materials.
Asphalt milling solves precise issues
Your parking lot, driveway or other structure made from asphalt might have suffered significant damage. If the damage is concentrated in only specific portions of the structure, asphalt milling is the best way of correcting the damage without repaving.
With asphalt milling, the asphalt is removed to a suitable depth. It is then replaced and then brought to an even level.
