If your pavement is too damaged for simple asphalt repair services like sealcoating or crack filling, the asphalt overlay services can give your pavement new life. Sometimes, sadly your asphalt is too old for an overlay to be effective, either. Your local paving company can help you find the right repair services to bring your pavement back to full function.
In Blue Springs MO, All Pro Asphalt & Maintenance is the trusted paving service that can tackle even the worst pavement damage, repairing it with state of the art repair techniques including asphalt overlay.
How does asphalt overlay work?
First, it’s important to understand what overlay is and what it is not. To perform an asphalt overlay, paving professionals lay new asphalt over existing pavement. That’s it. Minor repairs like crack filling are usually performed beforehand, and sometimes a petromat is put down to protect existing pavement, but damaged pavement isn’t removed. An asphalt overlay service isn’t the same as asphalt replacement, which is an important distinction to make.
When is pavement to old for an overlay?
Most asphalt pavement lasts between 10 and 20 years, spending on the amount of traffic it gets, how well it’s maintained and installed, as well as other factors. Therefore, asphalt over 20 years old is automatically too old for an overlay, but overlays can also be ineffective on younger pavement that has issues with the base layer or has been repeatedly repaired.
What happens when an overlay won’t work?
If an overlay won’t be enough to permanently repair your asphalt pavement, options include asphalt patching, if the damaged area is small, or full pavement removal and replacement if the issues are deeper.
