Why Asphalt Milling May be the Best Solution for Your Paving Repair
The professionals at All Phase Paving & Sealing understand no one wants to drive on roads or in parking lots that aren’t smooth and stable. While being uncomfortable and annoying, negotiating potholes and uneven pavement is also unsafe and can cause damage to vehicles. If you have a road or parking lot that needs repair, asphalt milling may provide a less expensive alternative without excavating and removing the old surface prior to a complete resurfacing.
What is Asphalt Milling?
When an asphalt surface has experienced some damage, but the damage isn’t so extensive as to require a complete removal of the old surface, asphalt milling provides a less expensive alternative. When the surface shows signs of wear like cracking, potholes or drainage issues, but the subsurface is strong, milling is the logical approach. Milling is the process of scraping or planing the top layer of asphalt to a pre-determined depth while leaving the asphalt below that area intact. Determining the amount of top surface that will be milled depends on the condition of the surface, and purpose of the project. We remove only the necessary amount of surface depending on these factors. The goal of milling is to leave the remaining surface with a proper plane so that the desired grades are maintained, and resurfacing can take place. Milling also helps reduce project completion times VS a complete excavation and resurfacing.
Where Does Milling Make Sense?
Milling makes sense when you are trying to control the spread of damage to an asphalt surface. Also, when you need to reduce expense and completion times, milling is an excellent alternative to doing a complete resurfacing. Other reasons for choosing milling are:
- It’s environmentally friendly. Milling allows for the recycling of the used material. Asphalt that is removed in the top layer can be crushed and re-used as an aggregate saving resources.
- When you are trying to integrate new pavement with old pavement in perimeter transitions
- When you want to restore a damaged road and create a smooth and comfortable riding experience. Milling is a great way to repair potholes, cracks and other imperfections without a complete road excavation.
- Anytime you are concerned about driver safety. Creating a smooth surface is not only good for customer relations, it’s just makes for safer parking lots.
