If a parking lot has not been properly maintained, serious issues are likely to arise, including diminished appearance, deep cracks, fractures and pot holes, puddling, crumbling, drainage issues, water damage and damaged sub-base material. Sometimes the most effective course of action is to remove and replace a deteriorated surface rather than attempt to repair it.

Kaplan Paving has the experience to offer remove and replacement services which include:

  • Removal of failed asphalt to proper depth
  • Regrade sub-base for proper drainage
  • Compact sub-base
  • Apply tack coat if required
  • Lay new hot mix asphalt in multiple lifts to ensure stability
  • Compact asphalt with vibratory rollers

Kaplan paving also offers Milling and Patching services. The condition and type of asphalt as well as volume of traffic are factors that will determine the repair.  The milling process can be used before the asphalt has become too worn. We mill off the top layer, usually 2 inches and re- apply a new surface layer of hot mix asphalt.

The patching process handles failed areas in a more targeted manner:

  • Failed/ broken asphalt is identified
  • Areas are sawcut and removed
  • Failed sub-base is removed and replaced
  • Sub-base is compacted
  • New hot mix asphalt is installed in multiple lifts to ensure proper stability
