Resurfacing your Asphalt Paving is faster and easier process than repaving or starting over with a new asphalt paving surface. Really, you are just putting a new top on your current asphalt paved driveway, like adding a fresh new layer over the old one.
The first step to successful resurfacing of your asphalt paving surface is to successfully fill in any large or small existing cracks to form an even flat asphalt base. Next the brand-new layer of asphalt is added – the thickness varies depending on the cracks and wear and tear. The thickness of the new layer can range from 1 1/2 inches to 3 inches. After there is a proper level of thickness that is smooth, even and flat, the CR Asphalt Paving team deploys a heavy roller machine to ensure the surface is completely smooth and flat. This ensures the surface when done right is smooth and will get a even level of pressure applied, unlike just driving random equipment over and over it and not applying the same amount of pressure over the entire surface area.
Don’t confuse resealing and resurfacing, these are two different processes. Resealing your asphalt paving is applying a protective coating over the asphalt surface. Resealing is a preventative measure only with the goal of aiding in the life expectancy of the asphalt paving.
You should consider resurfacing if 25 percent of your asphalt parking lot or driveway is cracked. If it is less than that you could probably wait a bit until the problem gets worse.
