Sometimes it is necessary to remove only a small section of your asphalt. This could be due to a pothole that develops or some other utility work that requires only a small section of your asphalt might require replacement.
Removal and replacement, or Asphalt Patching, is used for more localized deterioration, especially when the underlying base has been affected. The damaged areas are squared off, saw cut, and excavated to a depth from two inches to two feet depending on the subsurface conditions. New aggregate is then added, if required, and compacted in preparation for the new asphalt surface. Finally, hot-mixed asphalt is placed over this layer and compacted. Any raveled surfaces (surfaces in which the aggregate is coming loose) are then smoothed out and re-striping can be done, if needed. Shamblin Sealcoating also recommends treating the entire surface with a sealcoat to restore the original look of the area and further protect it.
Sealcoating is an economical way to improve the appearance of your property while maintaining your pavement investment. New pavement should be sealed as soon as it has fully cured, which is approximately 90 days. Asphalt pavements that are not sealed are constantly exposed to destructive elements that can cause expensive damage and shorten the life of your pavement. Shamblin Sealcoating applies the highest quality sealers using state of the art sealcoating equipment.
