One benefit of using asphalt for parking lots and roadways is because it is 100% recyclable. Asphalt milling is the environmentally friendly process which removes the asphalt that is already present on the ground. When asphalt has large cracks and potholes, it is best to utilize the asphalt milling process. Asphalt milling machines are set to a specified depth, and slope to repair these issues and ensure proper grade.
Asphalt milling is typically used to remove degraded pavement and improve drainage. Milling does not always have to be for large projects or an entire parking lot; this process can be performed when indicated for asphalt patches and overlays as well. Milling the asphalt prepares the surface for new asphalt to be installed, allowing it to have long lasting results.
American Asphalt Company provides milling and paving services, and we also manufacture the asphalt. The benefit that is not always immediately evident, is that because we are a one stop shop (asphalt producer, paving contractor, and parking lot maintenance company), we can bring asphalt millings back to our plants and recycle them into new asphalt. Utilizing the millings in the production of new asphalt is called Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement, also known as RAP.
If you are looking for an asphalt company that can service you for years and do it R.I.G.H.T., (with Respect, Integrity, God, Honesty, Trust), don’t hesitate to contact American Asphalt for all of your manufacturing, paving and parking lot maintenance needs.
