Asphalt Resurfacing is when the top layer of asphalt is removed and replaced with a new layer,
providing it another 12 years to your asphalt driveway or parking lot. It is the best cost-effective
way to provide a new asphalt look if the existing foundation of the pavement isn’t damaged.
Benefits of Asphalt Resurfacing
Potholes and cracks that form on your driveway and parking lots can lead to people getting
injured or damages towards vehicles. Resurfacing your driveway prevents future problems that
may lead to a whole asphalt replacement.
As children use the driveway for recreational activities, potholes, bumps, and cracks pose a
safety issue of them tripping and getting injured. Activities including running from your driveway
to the bus stop, learning how to ride a bike, or playing basketball.
Vibrant and well-designed parking systems are the first thing customers see, providing an
attractive overall impression of your property, setting your business apart from your competitors.
They make it easier for visitors and employees to see, make your parking lot a safer driving
environment. It also improves the value of your house, especially important when you are
planning to sell your building and your house.
Patching and providing sealcoating on cracks and potholes is an effective way to maintain your
driveway. When these are applied too often, it affects the structural integrity of the driveway or
parking lot that affects the foundation of the pavement. Asphalt Resurfacing provides a new
layer of asphalt that molds with the existing structure, providing a strong surface to resist
extreme weather conditions and vehicle use.
How to Prepare for Asphalt Resurfacing
1. Inspect For Damage
Before starting Asphalt Resurfacing, look for cracks and potholes. If there are larger than
a quarter-inch or deeper than a few inches, Asphalt Replacement will be a better
alternative, as the foundation may be damaged.
2. Sweep Away Debris and Dirt
Driveways and Parking lots are known to be filled with gravel, dirt, rocks, weeds, and
trash. Loose debris in cracks can be cleaned through using a broom or leaf blower. Use
a cleaning solution to scrub the remaining dirt and rinse it off with a pressure washer.
Allowing it to dry up to 24 hours.
Minor cracks and divots can be filled and smoothed through sealant or asphalt mix and
tampered to be flattened out.
Asphalt mix or milled asphalt is applied on the pavement, spread through a coater brush.
Moving in a continuous back and forth pattern, ensuring it covers the whole pavement
