Asphalt Resurfacing and Overlays
Resurfacing is sometimes the only decision for pavements that exhibit severe deterioration, deep wide cracks, depressions and potholes. These areas should be dug out and repaired with proper compaction of the stone base, and filled with hot mix asphalt prior to installing the new surface. If the original pavement is not properly repaired prior to the overlay, deteriorated areas will return in a relatively short time. Once repairs are completed, the overlay can be placed. An asphalt overlay should consist of 1-1/2 to 2 inches of hot mix wearing course, properly rolled and compacted. Remember that an overlay does not last as long as the original pavement, so it is imperative that a maintenance program be budgeted for and started within 1-2 years after installation.
Rocky Mountain Asphalt offers an alternative to emulsion sealers, in a premium Asphalt Rejuvenator Sealer, which only needs to be reapplied every 3-5 years. The Rejuvenator/Sealer is installed by high production, computer controlled equipment, resulting in a more accurate and even application which is specific to the age and condition of your asphalt. Since this product needs to be applied less frequently, its annual cost is lower than other alternatives. In addition to the cost savings, fewer applications also result in less disruption to your residents or customers. Asphalt Rejuvenator is best suited for use on new overlays or pavements that have not been seal coated. This product is a penetrant not a surface coating. It penetrates into the asphalt to chemically replasticize or rejuvenate the asphalt binder to improve pavement condition and reduce costly future cracking and repairs.
Paving and Pothole Repair
Rocky Mountain Asphalt offers repair options from “remove-and-replace” to “overlay repair” and pothole filling. The type of repair will be determined by the structural integrity of the base and the budget or goals of the owner/property manager.
Crack repair is an essential element of any asphalt maintenance operation. The #1 defense against water intrusion is crack repair. The Federal Highway Administration has determined “that not sealing cracks threatens the entire pavement structure as water penetrates weakening the pavement and the base.
Applying crack fill following the Rejuvenator/Sealer offers maximum protection to your asphalt and base and the best protection to your investment.
Key benefits of crack repair:
Save you Money: Cost effective and key component to protecting your asphalt investment
Prevents Water Penetration: Prevents water from entering cracks, freezing and expanding the cracks. Prevents water from entering cracks and deteriorating the base and sub base of the asphalt causing further and more extensive damage.
