Asphalt resurfacing

Asphalt resurfacing is a process used to restore the surface of an existing asphalt pavement. It can be done by milling and overlaying or scarifying and overlaying. Asphalt paving is a new installation of an asphalt layer over an existing base course, subgrade and drainage system. Both processes have their benefits and drawbacks depending on your needs. Still, in most cases, asphalt resurfacing will be more cost-effective than paving due to its ability to extend the life of your existing pavement.

Asphalt resurfacing costs less than half as much as paving because it only involves removing small portions at a time rather than replacing all of them at once, like with new construction projects, saving you money in labour costs alone! 

breakdown of the asphalt resurfacing process:

1.Assessment and Preparation

Before you begin, you need to assess the condition of your asphalt surface. This includes checking for cracks or other damage that may have occurred over time, like potholes or sunken areas in the road.

Once you’ve assessed and repaired any damage on your road surface, it’s time to prepare for resurfacing by removing any existing pavement markings (such as crosswalks) from your asphalt layer and installing new ones. You can do this using an industrial grinder with diamond blades or by manually scraping off paint with a putty knife until all traces are gone.

If there are holes in your road where water has collected, they will need to be patched before applying an emulsion tack coat–this ensures there aren’t any gaps between sections when finished!

2. Repairing and Patching

Asphalt emulsions are a mixture of asphalt and water. They come in different thicknesses, but they’re usually a little less than half as thick as the final layer of pavement will be (about 1/8 inch). The purpose of an asphalt emulsion is to fill in cracks in the existing surface before you apply the new layer of pavement.A tack coat is simply a liquid sealant that creates a bond between two surfaces when applied at right angles to each other. This helps keep moisture out and makes it easier for other substances (like paint) to stick onto your surface without peeling off later on down the road!

3.Leveling and Grading

Once all repairs have been completed, leveling and grading must be performed on the entire area prior to applying any additional layers of material like sealer or topcoat sealers which will help keep moisture out of cracks thus preventing further decay due to water penetration.

Frequently Asked Questions

The most Frequently asked question by Isaacs Asphalt Missouri

Asphalt resurfacing is applied to a new layer over an existing pavement. It is typically done when the existing asphalt is worn, cracked, or needs repair but has a stable base. 

The time required for asphalt resurfacing depends on the area’s size and condition. 

Not all asphalt surfaces can be resurfaced. The existing pavement should have a stable base and no major structural issues.

Asphalt resurfacing is often more cost-effective than a complete replacement because it doesn’t require removing and rebuilding the entire pavement structure. 

To maintain a newly resurfaced asphalt surface, it’s essential to perform regular maintenance, including crack sealing, seal coating, and addressing drainage issues.
