The first step in repaving a road is to remove the top layer of the old asphalt. This task requires the use of heavy equipment in a process called milling. A milling machine grinds up the old road material and grinds it back into crushed stone. It is then reused in the fresh pavement. Milling is often done at night, when traffic is lighter than it is during the daytime. Once the top layer of pavement is removed, the old road material can be mixed with fresh asphalt for the next step in repaving.
The smoothest road or parking lot is only as good as its subsurface.
That is why Ward Pavement Inc. crews carefully grade the bed and lay down the appropriate thickness and quality of crushed stone before applying the finishing asphalt layer. We adhere to the highest quality standards.
Every Ward Pavement Inc. paving project requires top-quality asphalt. Different grades of crushed stone are mixed with the correct proportion of liquid asphalt to supply the needs of each specific project. We work closely with area suppliers to blend the perfect asphalt for your job.
