Austin Asphalt Milling Contractors
U. S. Pave Austin knows the value of a first impression. Keeping your parking lot and walkways free of cracks, potholes and tripping hazards tells your clients you care about their well-being. Your parking areas are not only the first thing your customer sees. It is also the last thing they interact with. A smooth, even and well-maintained parking lot invites your customers to return.
Business owners often put off repairing their asphalt because they think they require an expensive new installation. However, the longer they put it off, the more likely this is to be true. Not all damaged lots are beyond saving. The sooner you act, the more likely your existing installation can be repaired.
If your asphalt is not in top condition, you risk liability for injuries through trip and fall accidents and vehicle damage. You also risk losing business to competitors with parking areas your clients find easier to use. U.S. Pave Austin has decades of experience helping business owners restore their curb appeal and enhance their customer’s experience.
Milling, Resurfacing and Overlay
U.S. Pave Austin’s decades of experience with milling, resurfacing and overlay provides a way to extend the life of your pavement. As a lower cost, environmentally-friendly approach, it provides stability and good looks. We use a special machine to grind away several inches of existing pavement. We then take this material offsite to be recycled for other projects. Water suppresses any dust created during this process, reducing any inconvenience to your customers, employees and neighbors.
Prior to any overlay, U.S. Pave Austin will complete any necessary repairs found beneath the ground-up area. This is an important step frequently skipped by other contractors. Proper repairs are necessary to ensure the new installation bonds properly. Any improperly repaired areas can erode the base beneath the pavement. This erosion may cause your overlay to fail.
The remaining asphalt is washed and painted with a bonding coat. This improves the adhesion between the existing pavement and the new application. We then roll the new material over the existing layer, resulting in a strongly bonded surface.
Our Austin experts will carefully examine your existing asphalt and ongoing traffic demands to determine if there is enough intact material to perform the overlay. Areas of severe damage may need reconstruction. If the entire structure is compromised, we can work with you to develop a plan to replace it. However, many times, an owner overestimates the extent of damage.
If our technicians find your asphalt does not need a milling and overlay, we can discuss the different types of repairs available to you. Some of the options are crack sealing, pothole repair and sealcoating.
