Asphalt Removal & Replacement
As asphalt pavement progresses through its performance lifecycle, its appearance diminishes over time.
Fine hairline cracks spread and deepen within the asphalt. Without ongoing maintenance, water may enter through cracks and holes may form, undermining the substrate. In this case, the most effective form of repair is to remove and replace the deteriorated area.
Area(s) are saw cut or milled and the existing deteriorated asphalt will be removed to the approximate specified depth. Existing stone base will be compacted and tack coat will be applied to perimeter of patch(es) to guarantee proper bonding. Hot asphalt will be installed and compacted with a multi-ton vibratory roller and/or vibratory plate.
The cost for asphalt removal & replacement depends upon the location, the amount of grading and substrate work required, and other site-specific factors. Request a free estimate to get an asphalt removal and replacement quote for your property.
Asphalt Resurfacing in Roanoke, Va.
In more severe cases of asphalt failure, a long-term and cost-effective solution is to resurface, also called “overlaying”) the asphalt pavement. If you notice grade depressions (standing water on the pavement) and/or large sections of alligatored areas (interconnecting cracks forming a series of blocks resembling an alligator’s skin), don’t think twice about resurfacing your asphalt pavement.
Asphalt Resurfacing Procedure
Our crew will take care of repairing and cleaning the area prior to performing work, including (but not limited to):
- Leveling asphalt of low areas
- Grinding or cutting all transitions
- Adjusting all drainage structures
After preparation and cleaning of the area, tack coat will be applied. Hot asphalt will then be installed to the approximate specified depth and compacted with a multi-ton vibratory roller to guarantee proper compaction.
Catch Basin Adjustment & Repair
To ensure proper pitch for drainage, often times catch basins need to be adjusted.
Catch Base Replacement
All utilities will be properly located prior to excavation. The perimeters of the area(s) to be excavated will be saw cut to enhance compaction and appearance. We will excavate the existing decayed block or pre-cast concrete catch basin, and properly dispose of all materials at a legal dumping site.
A pre-cast concrete catch basin with necessary adjustment rings will be installed and connected to the existing drainage lines. The existing cast iron frame and lid will be reinstalled on the new basin and reset at the proper height for proper drainage. The excavated area(s) will be backfilled with crushed aggregate, leveled, and compacted. We will then furnish and install hot asphalt mix, which will be compacted and rolled to match existing grade. We provide the option to install reinforced concrete, in place of asphalt, for added longevity.
Catch Basin Adjustment/Repair
We will excavate, as necessary, to extricate the existing catch basin frame(s). We will then furnish and install the necessary size frame and/or adjustment rings to reset level(s) for proper drainage. The excavated area(s) will then be backfilled and leveled with hot asphalt mix, which will then be compacted with heavy tonnage rollers to form a smooth surface.
Once the asphalt perimeter of a catch basin has been removed, the base is excavated as deep as is necessary to perform the adjustment.
Catch Basin Installation
In some cases, there is no proper drainage in a parking lot. Catch basin installation can be a possible solution in these cases. If there is a place to tie in the drain tile, or a place to let the water run off, then a catch basin can be installed in the lot.
