Commercial asphalt resurfacing is a process used to renew the surface of an existing asphalt pavement to restore its functionality, appearance, and structural integrity. Here’s a guide to our asphalt resurfacing in Stratford, CT:

  1. Assessment and Preparation:
    • Evaluate the condition of the existing asphalt pavement. Look for cracks, potholes, drainage issues, and signs of wear and deterioration.
    • Repair any structural damage, such as potholes and large cracks, using appropriate techniques like patching, filling, or milling.
    • Clean the surface thoroughly to remove dirt, debris, and vegetation. This may involve sweeping, pressure washing, and using a blower.
  2. Overlay vs. Mill and Overlay:
    • Decide whether to perform a simple overlay or a mill and overlay based on the condition of the existing pavement.
    • Overlay: Involves applying a new layer of asphalt directly over the existing surface. Suitable for pavements with minor surface defects and adequate structural integrity.
    • Mill and Overlay: Involves milling off a portion of the existing pavement to remove surface irregularities and improve bonding between the old and new layers. Suitable for pavements with moderate to severe distresses.
  3. Surface Preparation:
    • Ensure proper drainage by addressing any low spots or areas prone to water accumulation.
    • Apply a tack coat or bond coat to promote adhesion between the old and new asphalt layers.
    • Install edge milling to create smooth transitions between the existing pavement and adjacent surfaces, such as curbs and driveways.
  4. Asphalt Application:
    • Apply the new asphalt layer using appropriate paving equipment, such as a paver and rollers.
    • Compact the asphalt thoroughly to achieve the desired density and smoothness.
    • Ensure proper compaction to minimize the risk of future rutting and surface deformations.
  5. Finishing Touches:
    • Install pavement markings, such as striping and signage, as needed.
    • Perform quality control checks to verify the thickness, smoothness, and overall quality of the new pavement surface.
    • Plan for regular maintenance, such as crack sealing and sealcoating, to extend the service life of the resurfaced pavement.
  6. Traffic Management and Safety:
    • Implement appropriate traffic control measures to ensure the safety of workers and motorists during construction.
    • Communicate with stakeholders, such as residents and businesses, to minimize disruptions and inconvenience.
  7. Post-Construction Evaluation:
    • Monitor the performance of the resurfaced pavement over time to identify any issues or deficiencies.
    • Address any emerging problems promptly through maintenance and repair activities.
