Asphalt Paving Repairs
Use this 3-part SimpleSpecs™ master specification to specify repairs to existing asphaltic paving.
Asphalt paving repairs refer to the process of fixing and maintaining asphalt surfaces, such as roads, driveways, parking lots, and sidewalks. Asphalt is a popular choice for these types of surfaces because of its durability, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness. However, over time, asphalt surfaces can become damaged and require repairs to maintain their integrity and function.
Asphalt paving repairs can include a range of different techniques, depending on the extent and nature of the damage. Some common types of asphalt paving repairs include:
- Patching: Patching involves filling in holes or cracks in the asphalt surface with new asphalt material. This is a common repair technique for minor damage, such as small potholes or cracks.
- Resurfacing: Resurfacing involves applying a new layer of asphalt to the existing surface. This is a more extensive repair technique that is typically used for surfaces that have more significant damage, such as large potholes or extensive cracking.
- Sealcoating: Sealcoating involves applying a protective layer of asphalt sealer to the surface of the asphalt. This can help prevent damage from water, sunlight, and other environmental factors, prolonging the life of the asphalt surface.
- Milling: Milling involves removing the top layer of the asphalt surface to repair damage and restore the smoothness and levelness of the surface.
