If you have extensive damage on your parking lot, it may seem like you need to get the pavement replaced, but there’s some paving services that can save you tons of money: asphalt milling and overlay.
How to Save Your Eldersburg MD Parking Lot With Asphalt Overlay
Parking lot milling and overlay save you money by removing just the top layer of asphalt instead of all the pavement layers for a complete replacement. Asphalt milling is a process where a specialized grinding machine removes a thin layer of asphalt, and then another new layer of asphalt is poured over it for a new, smooth and solid surface.
This process saves money in several different ways:
- Labor costs – Overlay takes less time than a complete removal and repaving process, so it costs less to perform than a full pavement removal.
- Material costs – Instead of having to replace all layers (a gravel base, a binder asphalt layer, and a surface asphalt layer) with new paving materials, your paving contractor only needs to provide one type of asphalt.
- Pavement longevity – An overlay will extend the life of your pavement for a long time, which saves you money on expensive repairs or replacement services.
