Commercial asphalt takes a lot of wear and tear, standing up to heavy traffic and weather, but an asphalt parking lot or loading zone will eventually suffer some surface damage. That’s when business owners or property managers have to decide between two types of asphalt repair: resurfacing or replacement.
Ultimately, the decision to resurface or replace asphalt pavement depends on the extent of the damage, the age of the pavement, and the budget. It is recommended to consult with a professional pavement contractor to determine the best course of action for your specific situation. In New Jersey, Garden State Pavement Solutions is this professional asphalt contractor. We want our clients to be educated about their options, so here is some information about asphalt resurfacing services.
What is Asphalt Resurfacing?
Asphalt resurfacing involves applying a new layer of asphalt on top of the existing pavement, which can restore the pavement’s appearance, functionality, and durability.
When Asphalt Resurfacing Services Are Recommended
Asphalt resurfacing is recommended when the existing pavement has minor to moderate surface damage, but the underlying base is still in good condition.
Benefits of Asphalt Resurfacing:
- Cost-effective: Asphalt resurfacing is generally less expensive than completely replacing the pavement.
- Time-efficient: Resurfacing can be completed much more quickly than replacing the entire pavement, causing less disruption to traffic and business operations.
- Improved appearance: Resurfacing can make the pavement look new again, improving the overall appearance of the property.
- Enhanced durability: By adding a new layer of asphalt on top of the existing pavement, resurfacing can provide additional protection against weather and wear.
Asphalt Milling and Resurfacing
One of the most common techniques used in asphalt resurfacing is milling, which involves removing a portion of the existing asphalt surface using a milling machine before overlaying it with new asphalt. This technique is often used to repair pavement that has been damaged by cracking or potholes. The milling process creates a smoother surface for the new asphalt layer to adhere to.
