ASPHALT PAVING PREP
The most important aspect of all asphalt paving is a solid foundation. When starting a new project, it is vital to have the soil graded properly. If the soil is not stable we will remove the unstable soil until we find a solid foundation. When necessary we will use a soil stabilization fabric which prevents soil from coming in contact with the stone. Once a solid foundation is established, stone is then placed. We recommend a minimum of 4” of stone on all paving applications. We place the stone ensuring proper slope to allow for drainage. The stone is then compacted. It is especially important to use a tamper in front of garage doors to help obtain maximum compaction.
ASPHALT MILLING SURFACES
To meet the needs of our customers and to save them time and money, Tallmadge Asphalt/Paving offers a variety of milling capabilities. Asphalt is one of the most recyclable material in the world. Asphalt milling has become an essential part of our paving operation enabling us to meet the demands of our customers. We operate milling machines with a range of cutter widths.
We provide appropriate milling for:
- Pavement preparation prior to resurfacing.
- Full or partial depth patching.
- Parking lot pavement preparation prior to resurfacing.
- Perimeter/transitional milling to tie the new asphalt to existing pavement.
- Cutting drainage swales to correct drainage problems.
Benefits of Asphalt Milling:
- The milling process is an efficient way to remove or modify an existing asphalt surface with a specific consistent removal depth
- Our mill Operators are the best in the industry. Each operator has a name and reputation that exceeds any skilled qualification in the industry. Tallmadge Asphalt/Paving is capable of profile milling, mainline milling, private and commercial detail milling.
Consider milling on your next asphalt repair project for the following reasons:
- Cost-effective option: Milling is cheaper than using excavators and loaders.
- Minimal business disruptions: The process is less imposing on businesses with high traffic areas.
- Eco-friendliness: Milling is an environmentally sound choice.
- Improves drainage: This method flattens surfaces (such as parking lots) and reduces drainage across large areas.
Most companies prefer milling and paving because it's fast, efficient, and easy. Better still, causing minimal disruptions in traffic patterns allows retail locations to continue. We recommend milling with asphalt repair and maintenance in situations with both large or small repairs.
Driveway resurfacing is the process of covering existing pavement with 1 1/2 - 2” of new asphalt. Before driveway resurfacing can be begin, we make sure to check for any areas that need to be repaired. If an area is broken or heavily cracked it needs to be removed and replaced with base material. In some cases fabric is placed on top of cracks to help stop the cracks from reflecting through the new asphalt pavement. In some situations the most cost-effective option may be to cover an entire parking lot with fabric. This application is often used when an asphalt paving surface is still solid but has extensive cracking. When preparing a job site for driveway resurfacing, another step we take is milling. A milling machine is used to grind up asphalt. This is used to mill notches in the existing asphalt paving to ensure smooth transitions on a driveway resurfacing project. Milling can also be used to remove asphalt paving at areas that need to be lowered to allow proper drainage for garage floors, walks and curbs. Another application for milling is to scuff the surface of the existing asphalt.
We prefer to do this when a surface has been sealed or when the surface is steep. Scuffing the surface helps the new layer of asphalt to bond to the existing surface which ensures the correct application of a driveway resurfacing. We also take the time to remove all of the grass and sediment that is covering the edges of the existing blacktop. Once all of the milling and edging is complete, we sweep and then blow off the existing blacktop to obtain the cleanest surface possible. Tack coat is then applied to help the two surfaces bond together. Applying tack coat is an essential process of driveway resurfacing that cannot afford to be skipped. If the existing pavement has irregularities, a leveling course will be applied. A leveling course ensures that the final coat of asphalt will be uniform in profile, thickness and compaction.
PATCHING, REPAIRS, AND DRIVEWAY ADDITIONS
Your driveway or parking lot may have troubled areas while the rest of the area is still in good condition. These areas may include pot holes, cracking, high or low spots, even utility trenches. The most cost effective solution may be to remove the bad areas and replace them with new asphalt paving. Another service we offer is driveway additions. Maybe you want to add parking spaces or just make an asphalt driveway larger. We provide all the necessary equipment and materials to meet and exceed your needs. We will help you layout the size and shape of the area (s) you would like to add. Our team then excavates and stones the area followed by our paving crew who will then carefully place and compact the asphalt pavement.
