3 Signs You Need Asphalt Milling Services

Why We Need Sealcoating Companies

When a parking lot begins to show pavement deterioration of loose gravel and sand, it is known as asphalt raveling. In a previous blog, we explored the details of asphalt milling, along with the benefits of such a procedure for repairing pavement raveling.

In today's blog, we're looking at three specific signs which point to the need for the blacktop paving maintenance service, asphalt milling.

Drainage Problems

If you notice water splattering high as you drive through a parking lot puddle or see employees and customers 'puddle jumping' as they walk from the car to the building — the problem may be a pavement drainage issue. This drainage problem may be due to the lack of a catch basin allowing for proper water drainage. The pitter-patter of raindrops in puddles can be eliminated when the asphalt is milled at an angle.

Extreme Deterioration

In some cases, you are able to install an additional course of asphalt on top of the existing parking lot known as resurfacing. When paving maintenance has been ignored for too long, the potholes, cracks, and general deterioration of the asphalt become too extensive to allow for resurfacing. This is when asphalt milling is required to remove the significantly damaged top layer, revealing the second layer of asphalt or base stone. This first layer is typically two inches thick. Once the top layer has been removed and brought to a certified recycling center to be repurposed, the area is power swept, and tack coat is installed to ensure a proper bond between the existing surface and the new asphalt.

Pavement Height Issue

If the asphalt pavement has been 'fixed' multiple times in one given area by asphalt patching or if the entire parking lot has been resurfaced several times, eventually, the pavement in that area becomes higher than the engineer initially intended. This results in a reduction in the height of the curb face. Eventually, you completely run out of space on the curb face, meaning you can no longer see the curb and the curb is no longer providing the intended support to the structure of the parking lot. Asphalt milling will remove one to two inches of the surface layers, followed by paving to reveal the curb face and return the parking lot to its original form.
