Milling & Resurfacing
If your asphalt is still in okay shape but in need of a few repairs, resurfacing might be your best option. Milling is the process of removing existing asphalt so that a new layer can be applied.
What is Asphalt Paving?
Asphalt is a smooth, sticky and highly viscous material used for building pavements. Commonly known as bitumen, asphalt may be obtained from a wide range of selected crude oils or petroleum. It also occurs naturally from the remains of fossils, microscopic algae and other inanimate objects such as stones and gravel.
In essence, asphalt paving is the process of applying bitumen to a road, driveway or parking lot. This intricate process consists of not less than 7 steps, ranging from the demolition and removal of the existing surface to the installation of a new asphalt pavement. Our competent contractors are capable of executing all the required steps with utter perfection.
1. Demolition and Removal
The existing surface must be removed to pave way for the laying of a new asphalt pavement. At Arlington Asphalt Paving, we use the latest equipment and techniques to ensure that the existing surface is removed safely. We also recycle old asphalt to reduce wastage and conserve the environment.
2. Grading and Sloping
The essence of grading the job site is to prepare the surface for water drainage. As you might be aware, stagnant water is the leading cause of damage to asphalt pavements. Bearing this in mind, sloping will ensure that water is drained off appropriately.
3. Preparation of the Sub-Base
Preparing the sub-base is one of the most vital steps in asphalt paving, considering the fact that the base plays an essential role in supporting your new pavement. A good sub-base will also protect your pavement from damage caused by harsh weather conditions.
4. Proof Rolling, Undercutting and Sub Base Repair
After preparing the sub-base, the underlying surface is compacted using a roller track to ensure that the gravel does not flex under extreme weight. We will also carry out sub base repair to fix compromised areas.
5. Binder and Surface Course
The binder layer consists of large grade aggregate and spread mixed with oil. This layer is added to the sub-base to provide a stable and more durable surface course.
6. Installation of the Asphalt Surface
Installation of the asphalt surface can only be done once all the supporting materials are appropriately in place. A top layer of asphalt is added to the surface course to provide a smooth, shiny finish.
7. Butt Joints and Transitions
This step involves connecting your new pavement to existing roadways, parking lots and driveways, paving the way for a smooth transition from the old surface to the new asphalt pavement.
8. Final Roll
Like any other surface, a final roll is necessary to complete the project successfully. This roll ensures that the new surface is compacted and smoothed accordingly, subsequently removing any bumps that might be left.

At Arlington Asphalt Paving, we offer a wide range of asphalt paving services. Besides installing new asphalt pavements, we also carry out routine maintenance to ensure that your pavements can serve you well for years to come.
Other services include:
Sealcoating entails applying a protective coating to asphalt pavements to protect the surface from damage caused by water, UV rays and corrosive oils. This procedure also helps to reduce friction, subsequently extending the life of the asphalt pavement.
Although asphalt pavements are built to last, the top surface may deteriorate over time due to excessive friction and exposure to harsh elements. When this occurs, resurfacing the affected areas is the only way out of this predicament.
