When it comes to asphalt paving in the Hill Country our services include everything from new construction paving to driveway resurfacing. When asphalt has not been properly maintained or has just exceeded its life expectancy the old asphalt may need to be removed and replaced. This process usually involves complete removal of the old asphalt surface. Followed by an inspection of the existing base, additional steps may be needed to prepare the base. Conditions which may not be discovered until the old asphalt is removed are mud, shallow utilities, excessive moisture or an incorrectly installed subgrade. Our inspection will determine the most effective method to correct these conditions. Once things have been corrected the stone base is installed, graded and compacted. The new asphalt can then be installed and compacted with the correct rollers to finish the process.
When asphalt has begun to show signs of surface deterioration and the base is still intact an asphalt overlay is an extremely effective solution. The average thickness of an asphalt overlay is 1.5 inches, but the type of asphalt and customer needs must be evaluated before an overlay can be installed.
Sealcoating is a vital element of pavement maintenance. Sealcoat is a coal and tar emulsion that is applied over existing asphalt surfaces to protect the surface from daily destructive forces.
