Asphalt Milling

What is Asphalt Milling?

Asphalt Milling is a great option if you do not want to completely demolish and replace your existing pavement. The process includes grinding up the existing asphalt, a few inches up to full removal, in order to create a smooth and level surface for paving. Asphalt milling is a relatively new service to the industry, beginning in the 1970s. It has evolved into a dependable method for paving companies to service pavement restorations in a cost-effective and sustainable way.

Cost-Effective Reconstruction

Asphalt milling is most suitable for solving widespread surface damage such as cracking, raveling, or an uneven grade. It is not necessary to do a complete demolition and repaving since the base underneath the surface is still intact. The layers affected by the deterioration can be removed with milling machinery and repaved with new hot mix.

Asphalt Height

One option for asphalt repair is an asphalt overlay. The height of the pavement raises each time an overlay is performed because each overlay is a new layer added to an existing layer. The more layers, the more the pavement builds, and the higher the pavement gets. At some point, once the pavement has had multiple overlays, you cannot add another layer without it resulting in other problems. With asphalt milling, you are able to keep the pavement’s original height and restore the surface layer.

Sustainable and Eco-Friendly

The milled asphalt debris is gathered and brought to a recycling facility. There it is reused as aggregate in new hot mix. Through the process of asphalt milling, asphalt has become one of the most recycled materials in the nation.

Targets Specific Areas

If you have pavement that is very damaged in specfic places, such as a parking structure that is cracking on one side, or a road where only one side has an uneven gradient, asphalt milling is a great solution. With this particular restoration process, you are able to address those issues while maintaining the original height and level of the existing pavement. It allows you to resolve problem areas without repaving the entire structure.
