What Is Asphalt Milling?
Asphalt milling is a service that consists of removing part or all of a paved surface. The process can remove a small amount of the surface, so it may be levelled and smoothed, or it can remove the entire depth of the surface. When you contact your local paving expert, they will let you know the best course of action to take to correct whatever issues are happening with your asphalt surface.
Reasons You May Need Asphalt Milling
One of the primary reasons an asphalt surface is milled is to recycle the pavement in order to be ground up and used as aggregate for new pavement. This method of recycling the paved surface reduces the impact full resurfacing may have on the environment. By grinding up and reusing what is already there to make more, it allows contractors to lessen their environmental impact.
Asphalt milling may also be used to remove physical defects from the pavement. These include raveling, where the aggregate and binder have been separated; bleeding, where the binder comes up to the surface; or rutting, which refers to slight depressions or low spots. This usually occurs on roadways along the wheel path. If the asphalt surface has been damaged by an accident or fire, milling can be used to level it off and clean it up.
Milling is also an effective technique to help control the actual height of a roadway. The road height may need to be changed to control the clearance of manholes, curbs, catch basins and guardrails. It’s also used to change the slope of the road if there are issues with drainage that need to be changed.
