Is Asphalt Milling Right for You?
If your parking lot requires asphalt pavement restoration, asphalt milling might be a good solution. Asphalt milling includes grinding up the surfacer to provide a smooth surface to repave. One reason property owners choose asphalt milling is that it is an affordable option. If there isn’t significant damage to the subbase, then you don’t have to fully demolish the lot.
Milling Addresses Specific Problems
Sometimes, asphalt parking lots may have specific damages in limited areas. With asphalt milling, you do not have to uproot the entire parking lot. Instead, you can correct the area with the most damage and leave the rest. We would remove the asphalt and rebuild it to the same level as the rest of the pavement so that it looks seamless.
Milling Is a Green Option
If environmentally-friendly options are important to you, then you will most likely approve of asphalt milling. When we mill the asphalt from the surface, we collect and transport it to a facility where it can be recycled. Asphalt is one of the most-recycled materials in the United States. In the U.S., there are about 80 million tons of asphalt that end up reclaimed. Nearly all of that asphalt is then recycled.
Milling Depends on Height
If you have an asphalt overlay applied, then your pavement will grow in height. Over time, you cannot continue to add overlays. You can think about asphalt like you would paint. If you are repainting the walls in your home, you do not want a thick buildup. Over time, you have to scrape away the old paint. With asphalt, you have to grind away the old layers to maintain the height.
