Reconstruction, Resurfacing & Fabric Installation
Pavement work is done in one of two ways: with a pavement overlay (also known as resurfacing) when the subgrade is in good shape or through complete pavement and subgrade reconstruction. Minor problems can be fixed through repair work but when pavement deteriorates beyond a certain point, it needs to be replaced. The extent of damage will determine whether resurfacing or complete pavement and subgrade reconstruction is needed. Core testing can be done to determine the health of the asphalt subgrade.
When pavement is resurfaced, only the top layer of asphalt is replaced. The top asphalt layer is removed through the milling process and the subgrade is prepared for resurfacing. We often use paving fabric to extend the life of a pavement overlay. We use a high quality paving fabric called Mirapave® which forms an impermeable membrane between the pavement layers. Mirapave® prevents water from seeping through the pavement and causing damage to the underlying asphalt and subgrade. Use of paving fabric can improve the lifespan of pavement from 50% – 150%, greatly increasing its durability.
Milling & Milling Machine Rentals
Milling, also known as pavement profiling, is a process which produces a smooth, uniform section of pavement. It is used to remove old worn-out pavement, adjust pavement height and facilitate better drainage which is essential for long pavement lifespan.
When complete pavement reconstruction is needed, both layers of pavement (the surface and the subgrade layer) will be removed through milling. The site will be inspected and prepared for entirely new asphalt. Edge milling is also utilized to ensure the new pavement properly bonds to the concrete curb. Want to see how the process works?
