Pavement restoration can be done in various ways for different reasons. The most common reasons include: restoration after underground utilities have been installed, replaced or repaired; aging asphalt has developed cracks, pot holes or other damage; tree roots have damaged paved surfaces or concrete walks; and improper drainage and/or poor base material have caused the paved surface to be undermined causing pot holes or sunken surfaces. The type of restoration typically depends on the cause.
- Asphalt Patching
Asphalt patching greatly extends the life of existing paved surfaces by repairing the damaged areas, such as, cracks, pot holes and aged areas. If the asphalt has moderate cracking, a fabric can be placed between old and new asphalt to reduce reflective cracking. The damaged area is cut out and removed which allows the pavement base material to be inspected and corrected as needed with crushed rock or appropriate sub-based material. Asphalt is then placed, compacted to a smooth surface, and sealed to a like-new condition.
- Asphalt Overlays
Asphalt overlays restore aging asphalt surfaces with a new wearing surface. After patching has been completed, the existing surface is thoroughly cleaned and a tack coat CSS1 (an adhesive to adhere new asphalt to old asphalt) is placed on the clean surface. The entire area is then repaved with a new wear course of asphalt. This new surface will extend the life of the asphalt.
- Asphalt Grinding
Asphalt grinding is used to remove damaged asphalt or to prepare an existing surface for an overlay. Asphalt grindings make an excellent base material and can also be recycled into new asphalt. The use of grinding equipment can be beneficial at saving both time and money.
- Pervious Asphalt
A unique and effective means to address important environmental issues and support green, sustainable growth. By capturing storm water and allowing it to seep into the ground, pervious asphalt is instrumental in recharging groundwater, reducing storm water runoff and meeting U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) storm water regulations.
