Sometimes A Fresh Start Is What You Need
When it comes to asphalt paving, extreme weather and heavy loads can take a toll on the pavement’s structure, causing it to crack and shift over time. If your parking lot or driveway is breaking down, it may be time to start fresh with a full pavement remove and replace (R&R). Instead of trying to save sections and overlay or patch to salvage the asphalt, it’s more cost-effective in the long run to completely replace it, which will last longer and provide better protection of the underlying foundation.
In this case, it’s exactly what it sounds like. For this type of job, we literally break away the existing asphalt before hauling it away, revealing the base of the lot or driveway. If needed, fresh base material is added to fortify the foundation. The new or existing base is then rolled to grade, which will help with water drainage and preservation of the new asphalt. After the base is compacted, we apply a new layer of fresh asphalt and roll it to specified thickness, leaving you with a fresh new lot.
This is typically determined by an inspection. The standard is this: If your asphalt is dried out, oxidized, cracked and deteriorating to the point where an asphalt overlay would be like putting a Band-Aid on a wound that needs stitches, a remove and replace is needed. Sure, a seal coating or patch repairs will cost you less in the short term, but if the lot is beyond repairs, they are only delaying the inevitable and the pavement will fail soon. It’s cheaper to replace the lot and institute a pavement maintenance program that works for your budget.
