asphalt milling services
Asphalt milling is the process of removing some or most of an asphalt surface with an industrial milling machine. When the base course of your parking lot remains in good condition but the asphalt layer has failed to a large extent, asphalt milling is an effective way to bring your pavement back to “like-new” condition at minimal expense.
We’ve all seen this process being undertaken on our highways and city streets. The grinding machine moves the milled asphalt to a conveyor, which loads it into large cartage trucks that transport it to nearby plants for recycling. Immediately afterwards, the milled surface can be used as a driving surface or full depth paving can be done to restore an otherwise good road.
Wedge Milling: Edge Milling is the process of milling the asphalt areas directly adjacent concrete curbs, gutter pans and metal structures, such as manhole covers to a specified width and depth. We edge mill to tie into the elevations of the existing concrete and metal structures, asphalt is removed along the perimeter to allow proper depth of asphalt on the edge, but most importantly to preserve the appropriate drainage patterns on the asphalt surface. Full width Milling: This process is referring to milling to a specified depth on the entire asphalt street and/or parking lot. Clean Up: Any debris resulting from the process will be removed upon completion
Asphalt pavement is not only 100% recyclable but is the most recycled material in the U.S. No road or highway lasts forever. But replacing asphalt road surfaces is cost-effective and environmentally friendly because asphalt is 100% recyclable. Through a process called milling, only the amount of existing roadway needing rehabilitation is removed, allowing a new surface to be applied right over the original construction. Not only does this speed construction, minimizing disruption to the public, but it provides a safer, smoother road by matching existing curbs and drains.
