An asphalt overlay is the process of installing a new layer of asphalt over an existing asphalt pavement surface. A liquid emulsion is sprayed onto the surface prior to installing the new layer of asphalt. Installations are ideal when the surface has become heavily cracked but the base of the pavement remains stable. The new layer is installed after appropriate repairs have been made to the old pavement such as crack filling and skin patching. Care must be taken to ensure the grade of the overlay permits drainage so as to prevent water from being trapped on the new surface. All manholes, valves and other ground fixtures are raised to the new grade. Where necessary, grinding of the existing surface and removal of tree roots is done to ensure proper grade.
Remove and Replace Existing Pavement
Remove Pavement: Remove the existing pavement and haul away the excess debris. Install base stone as needed, adjust and set final grade and compact the base.
Install Pavement: Hot mix asphalt will be installed at various depths depending on the project requirements. A driveway is typically 2" compacted, while a parking lot varies from 3" to 6" depending on the requirements of the project and the expected application of the surface. The final grade is adjusted and the pavement is compacted.
