The Valuable Process of Asphalt Milling

Consider Asphalt Milling For Your Property

If you have a commercial parking lot or long driveway, asphalt milling is a process that can benefit your business in several ways. It can improve the look and function of your exterior grounds at a fraction of the cost of replacing an asphalt surface entirely.

At Azzarelli, our professionals will remove the top surface of your parking lot to an appropriate depth. They will be sure to keep the underlying sub-base intact, which can save you time and money. Curbs, drainage features, and other structures also will not be touched. Finally, a new layer of asphalt is placed over the sub-base, creating an essentially new parking lot that is just the right height.

The Benefits of Asphalt Milling

While a completely new parking lot or driveway is definitely a good thing, it isn’t always necessary. The alternative, asphalt milling, has several key benefits:

  • It can save time
  • It can reduce the overall price
  • It looks great
  • It repairs a rough parking lot
  • It lasts a long time

Another benefit of the process is that the milled or removed asphalt can later be used for other paving projects. This recycling of materials saves both resources and energy.

The Process of Asphalt Milling

Milling machines consist of a cutting drum, vacuum, and conveyance system. The cutting mechanism chews up the existing asphalt to the desired depth. Next, the vacuum sucks up the materials, and then the conveyance system transports them to a dump truck. The new, lower surface of the parking lot is swept clean, and then a new layer of asphalt is placed on top. 

Our team at Azzarelli Paving & Site Development can use asphalt milling to bring an old parking lot back to pristine condition. Call 813-296-6500 or email us today to find out the best solutions for your parking lot.
