When normal wear and tear has taken its toll, sometimes a more drastic restoration approach than patching needs to be taken.

The steps needed for asphalt resurfacing are numerous, which is why a trusted company, such as Southern Asphalt Engineering, Inc., is a necessity. This service, which we offer to Municipalities, Utility Contractors, and Industrial Facilities, is a multi-step process.
Asphalt Milling and Resurfacing
The process of resurfacing an asphalt commercial property lot or parking lot asphalt begins with milling. Milling is the removal of old asphalt to make way for the new. This is a stripping process, making the area being worked on lower than the surrounding areas. Unlike the patching of asphalt, every aspect of the area is removed so new asphalt can be laid.
Before the area can be resurfaced, a proper cleaning needs to take place, so that the newly laid asphalt will be secure. This requires the use of high power vehicles and equipment. The rejuvenation part is essential to the resurfacing, as a clean, flat surface is necessary for the pouring of the new surface.
During asphalt resurfacing, a tack coat is first applied and will act as a binding agent between the old surface and the new. This ensures that the new surface will properly stick, allowing a secured and long-lasting surface.
After the tack coat, the new surface is applied by our paving equipment. We ensure an even coating of the new surface material, taking great pride in our work. The smoothing process when you resurface asphalt is important, as the new surface should be flat and without any bumps or other faults.
We will then apply the new markings to the finished surface, if necessary.

Asphalt Milling and Resurfacing FAQs
What is the difference between resurfacing and reconstruction?
Reconstruction is when you redo the pavement entirely by laying down a whole new base layer and pavement overlay. This requires milling to occur, which is grinding up the asphalt surface to provide a smooth and even surface for repaving. Resurfacing is for restoration and does not require a new base layer; it just installs a new layer of asphalt.
When should the surface be reconstructed?
Southern Asphalt Engineers can help you determine if it is time for your surface to be reconstructed, but there are also a few things you can check to tell if you are due for asphalt repairs. If you see interconnecting cracks or “alligator skin,” this could be a good indicator that you are due for a fix. Also, areas in the asphalt that seem uneven or are unable to drain water can be signs of depressions, which can tell you that you need asphalt reconstruction.
What is the expected lifespan of reconstructed surfaces?
This can depend on a few factors like weather, traffic, quality of materials used, and if maintenance is done on the surface. With Southern Asphalt Engineering, you will get the most use of asphalt because we use the highest quality products. Your reconstructed asphalt will last from 15 to 25 years, and resurfacing surfaces can last 8 to 15 years.
