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.
Adobe Asphalt has been beautifying Tucson Driveways since 1997. Crack sealing and seal coating your driveway is the #1 way to extend the life of your asphalt driveway. Adobe Asphalt will assess the best way to seal coat your driveway by way of a 2 coat spray or completing the seal coat manually using squeegees.
Cracksealing is an important step to extending the life of your pavement. Cracks will allow water to penetrate the base of the pavement and can lead to future issues such as alligatoring and potholes.
We realize the importance of keeping the sealer on the pavement and not on your surrounding curbs or landscaping.
Our employees take pride in their work and strive for 100% customer satisfaction. We use the best products available for Sealcoating. Guard Top Sealer, Sealmaster MasterSeal, Sealmaster PMM (polymer modified sealer). We will recommend the best sealer for your job and budget.
365 days of sun might be nice for us in Southern Arizona, but it’s brutal on Asphalt parking lots, driveways, and roadways. Add daily traffic use, water seeping in from rain or sprinklers, as well as the normal aging process, and it’s easy to see why pavement deteriorates. The good news is Adobe Asphalt can help you slow down the process and save you money at the same time. Seal Coating your driveway, parking lot, or roadway is the process of applying an Asphalt Based Pavement Sealer Guard Top Asphalt Sealer – SealMasters MasterSeal or Polymer-Modified Sealer – SealMasters PMM.
Seal Coating creates a protective surface layer that coats your asphalt, protects, beautifies, and adds years to its life – all at a fraction of the cost of having to replace pavement once it’s worn beyond repair.
Advantages of Seal Coating
Chip sealing, or tar and chip, involves spraying a hot rubber-based emulsion onto the surface, then immediately spreading a layer of uniformly sized aggregate chips. A double shot chip seal will give you the best and longest-lasting surface for your chip seal driveway which consists of 2 layers of oil and 2 layers of chip. Chip seal is a great alternative to asphalt in our desert environment and blends in nicely in our desert setting.
Chip sealing also referred to as “Tar & Chip” paving, is the most economical method of driveway and pavement resurfacing. Driveway chip sealing is comparable to other resurfacing methods in durability and effectiveness but costs far less. Chip seals are economical surface treatments designed to protect and prolong the life of the pavement.
Asphalt pavements are like the paint on your house. The moment the application process ends, the deterioration starts. Much like paint, asphalt is subject to oxidation, sunlight, rain, and freeze and thaw cycles. Pavement is also subjected to a wide array of different traffic loads and additional stresses from normal ground movement. Chip Seals can be used on new pavements to increase traction or to prolong the life of pavement that is structurally sound but is beginning to age and may have some surface distress.

Chip Sealing, or Tar and Chip, involves spraying a hot rubber-based emulsion onto the surface, then immediately spreading a layer of uniformly sized aggregate chips. The hot rubberized asphalt emulsion retains flexibility and will not bleed through the aggregate overlay. The new surface is rolled to seat the aggregate. Chip seal can be done as a single shot chip seal or a double shot chip seal process depending on the current condition of your base curing time is very short and traffic can resume in a matter of hours.
