Asphalt Paving Resurfacing Explained

So, what is asphalt paving resurfacing? Asphalt resurfacing is a process whereby the top layer of an asphalt surface is removed and replaced. According to the Nashville Public Works, asphalt pavement normally have a life span of 8 to 12 years depending on traffic and the elements. When asphalt areas can not be restored by regular means. The existing pavement will need to be removed and a new asphalt layer is poured onto the existing base. This is a popular option for those looking for a brand-new finish at a fraction of the cost of a complete asphalt replacement service. It can save property owners time and thousands of dollars.

Residential Resurfacing

Asphalt resurfacing services are common in residential areas. Typical applications include:

  • Driveways
  • Sidewalks
  • Walkways
  • Sport Areas

Damaged or deteriorated blacktop paved areas can be completely transformed by a good resurfacing job. As with all aspects of a property, the asphalt resurfacing job can be protected with a comprehensive maintenance plan. This will ensure its longevity providing great value to the property.

You will be happy to know that just about every asphalt resurfacing job is done using 100% recycled asphalt. Recycled asphalt is considered just as durable as virgin asphalt, costs less, and environmentally friendly.

You can feel comfortable to know that a recycled asphalt driveway will have curb appeal and it is going to last just along as a driveway using virgin asphalt,

If your residential driveway is cracked, pooling with water, or potholes, it might need to be resurfaced. A local reliable and experienced asphalt paving contractor should be able to assess the pavement and provide sound advice on what type of service is needed.

Commercial Asphalt Paving Resurfacing

Commercial asphalt resurfacing is also very common in paved areas such as parking lots, walkways, patio, and sports areas. Completely replacing an entire parking lot is a significantly expensive undertaking. Resurfacing instead can dramatically boost the lifespan of a lot while saving a great deal of money.

If your commercial asphalt parking lot has cracks, potholes, or water pooling where it didn’t before, it is important to contact a professional asphalt paving contractor as soon as possible.

Resurfacing Steps

This section outlines the general steps involved with asphalt resurfacing.

  1. The current top layers of the asphalt area are professionally removed and the location is sloped to make sure rain runs off correctly.
  2. The subfloor is compacted and tested with a proof roll. This is to make sure it is ready for new asphalt to be applied.
  3. A layer is known as a “binding layer” is added for integrity.
  4.  Joints and transitions are added to this binding layer. A roller truck then rolls out the newly created asphalt surface to compact it and give it strength.
