The Importance of Asphalt Milling for Maintaining your Driveway and Parking Lot

When it comes to an important project like asphalt milling and paving, you want to know the asphalt paving contractors you hire use the best equipment. As the top provider of asphalt repair in Vaughan and York Region, Sure-Seal Pavement Maintenance Inc. uses only the best and latest equipment for this delicate process.

Pavement milling involves removing at least part of the surface of a paved area as part of asphalt repair. Depending on the damage to the pavement, we either remove just enough asphalt to smooth the surface or completely remove it. If it’s been some time since your last asphalt maintenance, we may just have to completely remove the surface.

Asphalt repair is one of the main reasons why our customers call us for asphalt milling. Having your driveway or parking lot milled can create a smoother surface to drive and park on. And as an added bonus, it can also greatly extend the life of your driveway and parking lot as well, adding to the value of your property.

However, as one of the top asphalt paving contractors in Vaughan and York Region, we want to let our customers know that there are a number of reasons for asphalt milling and paving besides repair. With the wet spring, summer, and fall the Greater Toronto Area experienced, your driveway and parking lot are doubtlessly looking worse for the wear.

There are many issues that pavement milling can deal with. Raveling is caused when the aggregate becomes separated from the binder and it becomes loose on the road, while bleeding occurs when the binder, or asphalt, comes to the surface of the road. Shoving causes a washboard-like effect that appears transverse to the direction that traffic travels in.

Finally, rutting doesn’t just occur on unpaved roads; if any part of your driveway or parking lot experiences heavy traffic, ruts may develop that can be deep or shallow. If you notice ruts developing on your property, we recommend having it repaired quickly, before it becomes an issue. As part of our asphalt repair in Vaughan, we will use milling to repair ruts in your pavement.

Other reasons for asphalt repair include the obvious reasons, such as swells, bumps, sags, and depressions. Having asphalt paving contractors use milling is an excellent way to take care of pavement issues such as this.

And you won’t have to worry about having a negative impact on the environment if you call Sure-Seal for asphalt milling and paving. We recycle the asphalt we mill and use recycled materials for our asphalt repair in Vaughan.

If you experienced an accident on your property or even a fire, this can lead to damaged pavement, which in turn will require asphalt milling and repair.
