When it comes to maintaining the quality of your driveway, parking lot, or recreation area, there will come a time when asphalt removal and replacement becomes necessary. A-1 Asphalt understands that there are certain situations that may require this service, such as weakened structural integrity of the sub-base, drainage issues, or elevation problems.
At A-1 Asphalt, we strongly believe that the key to strengthening a road, parking lot or other paved area starts by preparing the ground beneath it. This is essential to ensure the stability and longevity of the asphalt surface. Therefore, before any paving work begins, we survey the area to determine if there are any materials or layers that are not stable enough to support asphalt. If we discover any, we will dig them out and remove them.
It is also important to note that paving over concrete is not a good idea because the asphalt will sink into the spaces between the blocks of concrete, leaving visible lines in your asphalt. Therefore, we always recommend removing the existing concrete before proceeding with the new asphalt.
When it comes to asphalt removal and replacement, there are several steps involved in the process. The first step is to excavate or remove the existing asphalt, which reveals the gravel base. If there are any areas where the sub-base is soft, they will need to be undercut and then fine-graded to the proper grade. An undercut is an area that needs to be fully excavated and backfilled with aggregate. Undercuts usually range in depth but, for the most part, are 8 inches deep.
After the existing asphalt is removed and the sub-base is properly repaired, a new layer of asphalt is applied and compacted to the proper thickness. At A-1 Asphalt, we use the highest quality materials to ensure that the new asphalt surface is strong and durable. We take pride in achieving a smooth, even surface that is sure to improve the appearance of your property.
While asphalt removal and replacement are more expensive than other forms of asphalt repair, it is well worth the investment. Our contractors at A-1 Asphalt believe that it is often the best investment in the long-term health of your asphalt surface. By starting with a strong, stable sub-base, you can enjoy a smooth and durable surface for years to come.
