Badly deteriorated or damaged areas of asphalt require complete removal and replacement for an effective repair. In many cases the subgrade below the asphalt needs to be stabilized to allow for a proper asphalt repair.
Remove & Replace
In this type of pavement repair, the distressed area is saw cut approximately one foot around the perimeter into solid, undamaged pavement. The asphalt is then removed and the subgrade is stabilized, graded and compacted. Finally, hot mix asphalt is placed into the repair area, raked or installed through a paver, and compacted flush to the surrounding surface.
