New Asphalt Installation and New Blacktop Installation

An asphalt overlay is the process of installing a new layer of asphalt over an existing
asphalt pavement surface. A liquid emulsion is sprayed onto the surface prior to
installing the new layer of asphalt. New asphalt and blacktop installations are ideal
when the asphalt surface has become heavily cracked but the base of the asphalt
remains stable. The new layer of asphalt is installed after appropriate
asphalt repairs have been made to the old pavement such as crack filling and
skin patching. Care must be taken to ensure the grade of the overlay permits drainage
so as to prevent water from being trapped on the new asphalt surface. All manholes,
valves and other ground fixtures are raised to the new grade. Where necessary,
grinding of the existing asphalt surface and removal of tree roots is done to ensure
proper grade.

Remove and Replace Existing Asphalt Pavement

Remove Pavement: Remove existing asphalt pavement and haul away the excess
debris. Install base stone as needed, adjust and set final grade and compact the

Install Pavement: Hot mix asphalt will be installed at various depths depending on
the asphalt project requirements. A new asphalt driveway is typically 2" compacted,
while a parking lot varies from 3" to 6" depending on the requirements of the project
and the expected application of the surface. The final grade is adjusted and the
asphalt pavement is compacted.
