Pavement Resurfacing And Maintenance WITH AR RESURFACING

Things involved in asphalt paving techniques

1. Asphalt repair and patching

On the areas of the pavement with potholes, patching as asphalt paving techniques are common asphalt repair. When water seeps into the pavement through unsealed or improperly sealed cracks, the potholes occur.

The water expands and enlarges the cracks upon freezing. A void is left when the ice under the pavement melts. It forms a pothole as the surrounding pavement falls into the void.

2. Removal and replacement of asphalt

The appearance of asphalt diminishes over time as asphalt pavement progresses through its performance lifecycle. Within the asphalt, fine hairline cracks spread and deepen.

Water may enter through the cracks and holes might form undermining the substrate without ongoing maintenance. The most effective form of repair is to remove and replace the deteriorated area in this case.

3. Asphalt resurfacing or asphalt overlay process

Resurfacing the asphalt pavement which is also referred to as asphalt overlay process is the long-term and cost-effective solution in the most severe cases of asphalt failure.
