As a full-service paving company, we can help restore your broken asphalt, replace your current asphalt lot, or pave a brand-new asphalt surface for your business.
Benefits of Asphalt
- An asphalt lot will last, on average, 15-20 years. With sealcoating, you can get even more life out of it!
- Asphalt is great for noise reduction as the surfaces materials used absorb road noise.
- It is more affordable than concrete.
- An asphalt lot can be installed very quickly.
- Asphalt is excellent for water drainage as it is a porous surface. This allows water to pass through the asphalt into the gravel base, where it then filters back into the ground.

- Paving & Milling
- Asphalt Repair
- Brand-New Asphalt Base

Asphalt milling is the process of removing the top layer of asphalt to an even depth without disturbing the subbase underneath. When the top layer has been removed, new asphalt can be laid down without increasing the height of the road. If the subbase of your lot is sound, milling saves you time and money by repairing only the damaged part of your blacktop.
How is Asphalt Milling Done?
We use a large piece of equipment called a milling machine to remove the top layer of asphalt and recycle it.
A large cutting drum on the machine chews up the existing asphalt and a vacuum sucks up the milled material to be deposited on the conveyance system where it is moved to a dump truck. These machines work together to break up and collect the material.
Once the asphalt milling machine has removed the asphalt and the material has been sent to the dump truck, the surface is swept and cleaned. Cleaning the surface helps create a strong bond between the old and new asphalt.
Benefits of Asphalt Milling
Asphalt milling is beneficial for both consumers and the environment! The ground-up material is used as an aggregate in fresh asphalt, reducing or eliminating the amount of new material needed to repave a lot. This also cuts the cost of having your lot repaved.
Asphalt milling is much quicker than other pavement removal methods and produces a stronger finish.
Micro Milling for a Smoother Surface
Micro milling removes a thin layer of existing asphalt before a new layer of asphalt is applied. Rather than the deep ruts and cracks removed during traditional milling and asphalt paving, micro milling works better for shallow ruts and smaller cracks. Micro milling is often less expensive than traditional methods while providing a significantly smoother final surface because of the finer texture of the asphalt.
