Asphalt Milling: A Cost-Effective Solution for Surface Restoration
Asphalt milling, also known as pavement milling or cold planing, is a process used to remove the top layer of an existing asphalt surface without disturbing the underlying layers. This method is often employed as a cost-effective and efficient solution for repairing or restoring asphalt surfaces, particularly when there are issues like cracks, ruts, or uneven areas. Let's take a closer look at what asphalt milling entails and why it's an attractive option for surface restoration.
Asphalt milling is performed using a specialized machine called a milling machine or cold planer. These machines are equipped with a large rotating drum containing sharp cutting teeth that grind away the top layer of asphalt. The depth of milling can be adjusted, allowing for the removal of just the problematic surface layer or multiple layers, depending on the specific needs of the project.
As the milling machine grinds away the asphalt, the removed material is typically collected by a conveyor system and deposited into a truck for transportation. This reclaimed asphalt can then be recycled and used in the production of new asphalt mixtures, making the process environmentally friendly and sustainable.Contact Us Today For a Free On-Site Estimate
Asphalt milling is an excellent option when the existing pavement has surface-level damage or imperfections but still maintains structural integrity in the lower layers. It's particularly well-suited for addressing issues like cracks, ruts, uneven areas, or minor surface damage caused by weather or regular wear and tear.
Asphalt milling is a cost-effective, efficient, and environmentally friendly solution for surface restoration. It's an ideal choice for projects that require addressing surface-level issues without the need for a complete pavement replacement, ultimately saving both time and money while maintaining the integrity of the existing pavement structure.
