All About Resurfacing Asphalt with Milling
What Is Milling?
Also known as cold planing or profiling, this parking lot repair method removes a portion of an existing pavement surface to prepare it for resurfacing or reconstruction. It involves using specialized equipment, such as a milling machine, to grind and remove the surface layer of pavement, which can range from a few millimeters to several inches in depth. The removed material, known as “millings,” is typically recycled into new paving or other construction projects.
Afterward, the prepared surface can be overlaid with a new asphalt layer, providing a fresh, smooth, and durable surface. This service is often called overlay and can be performed alone on stable pavement with surface damage.
How Do I Know My Pavement Needs This Repair Service?
To determine if your parking lot or driveway needs asphalt milling, there are several signs you can look for. Cracks, potholes, and uneven surfaces indicate that the pavement’s underlying layers may be damaged and need removal. Drainage issues, standing water, and puddles are additional signs that your pavement may need to be milled to adjust the grade and improve drainage. If the paved area is old, worn, and subjected to heavy traffic or weathering, it may need to be milled to remove the damaged surface layer and create a new base for resurfacing. Additionally, a rough or uneven texture indicates that milling is necessary to create a smoother, more comfortable surface to drive or walk on. It’s recommended that you consult with a professional paving contractor to assess the condition of your pavement and suggest the best course of action.
