What is Asphalt Milling?
Asphalt milling is the process of removing and recycling the top layer of asphalt from a street, parking lot, or driveway without disturbing the sub-base. Asphalt milling is used to remove ½” – 4+” in preparation for a new 1 1/2″- 2” asphalt overlay and resurfacing project.
- Cost. Milling is one of the more cost-effective ways of paving reconstruction.
- Ecofriendly. The milled asphalt is recycled to make new asphalt.
- Speed. Aside from resurfacing your asphalt surface, milling is the most efficient solution to asphalt reconstruction.
Site Preparation for New Asphalt Pavement
The overall strength and performance of an asphalt pavement is dependent not only upon the asphalt mix’s structural design but also on the load-bearing capacity of the sub-base constructed.
A well constructed sub-base provides a stable surface to support the asphalt layers and the weight of expected traffic. It also helps prevent damage to the asphalt surface during winter freeze-thaw cycles.
