Asphalt Remove and Replace:
                Remove existing asphalt, either whole driveway or saw cut and remove specified sections
                Prep sub-grade, leveling and grading
                Furnish and install crushed concrete, if needed
                Furnish and install either 3” or 4” of 1100T commercial grade asphalt to be installed in lifts as quoted
                For saw cut and removal of specified sections, furnish and install required amount of asphalt and wedge to meet existing asphalt
                Compact to proper density and tamp edges using vibratory rollers or compaction plates
                Clean up all job related debris

Prevents Oxidation -
Regular sealing applications shield against the drying action of the sun, raveling, cracking and deterioration. 

Weatherproofs -
The accumulation of moisture in pavement structures is probably the greatest cause of pavement damage.  Proper sealcoating prevents water seepage into the porous asphalt structure, stopping weather damage

Resurface or Recap:
                Clean and prep existing asphalt
                Wedge all low areas with 1100T 20AA asphalt mix
                Apply SS-1H bonding adhesive tack coat primer to existing asphalt
                Furnish and install 2” of 1100T commercial grade asphalt over existing asphalt
                Compact to proper density and hand tamp edges using vibratory rollers or compaction plates
                Clean up all job related debris

Asphalt is a petroleum product and has tripled in cost.  For pennies per square foot, sealcoating your asphalt can protect your investment and prevent costly repairs.

Concrete catch basin – remove and replace:
                Saw cut and remove section
                Repair sections for level water flow as needed
                Mortar and tuck existing joints
                Reset frame and grate
                Replace with 4,000 PSI concrete

We recommend Sealcoating your Asphalt Annually or Bi-Annually.


Why Asphalt Pavement Deteriorates -
Properly designed and constructed asphalt pavements rarely deteriorate from the traffic.  Surface wear is primarily caused by weathering, oxidation and the destructive softening effects of gasoline, oils and deicers.

Our sealing application is specifically formulated to shield against the harmful elements that lead to surface deterioration.  Extend the life of your asphalt pavement and restore that like-new look at minimal cost.


                Apply uniform heavy coat of SEALMASTER commercial grade product line.
               Diamond shield latex modifier of 4-6% will be added to reduce cure time and increase structural strength
               Silica sand will be added to the sealer, 3-5 lbs. per gallon, for enhanced durability and slip resistance traction
                Driveway will be cleaned using high power commercial strength blowers and wire brooms
                Surface will be clean and free of debris before application
                Area will be taped or barricaded to allow for proper drying time

*Heavily cracked areas may have water drawn up to the surface, when this water evaporates there may be a white or brown mineral that will form in the crack.  We have no control over this if it happens.*

Asphalt Overlay:
                1” raise in existing asphalt
                Clean and prep area for repair
                Apply SS-1H bonding adhesive tack coat primer to all areas of repair
                Wedge all low areas with 1100T 20AA asphalt mix
                Furnish and install 1” 1100T commercial grade topping over existing asphalt base
                Compact to proper density using vibratory roller or compaction plates
                Clean up all job related debris

Asphalt New Install:
                Prep subgrade, level and grading
                Furnish and install 20AA crushed concrete, if needed
                Furnish and install 1100T commercial grade hot asphalt mix, 4” to be installed in 2 2” lifts
                Compact for proper density and tamp edges using vibratory rollers or compaction plates
                Clean up all job related debris

Asphalt catch basin repair:
                Saw cut and remove existing asphalt section
                Repair sections as needed for level water flow
                Blend existing point and joints
                Reset frame and grade
                Replace with 1100T asphalt commercial grade topping
                Clean up all job related debris

Hot rubber crack filling:
                Use MDOT SPEC 3405 hot applied material
                Cracks are power cleaned and all loose debris will be removed using high powered blowers and steel wire bristle brooms
                Deep cracks are pre-filled with silica sand to prevent sinking as needed
               MDOT spec material is applied to cracks using a banded method (1/2” on either side of the crack) to prevent water from sitting on or near the crack

Hot rubber crack filler is for major cracks of approx. 3/4” wide and smaller only.  This material is not meant to seal broken areas, edge cracking, hairline cracks, raised cracks and cracks over 1.5” wide
Filling the gap or crack between any concrete and asphalt is not part of this process


Alligator Cracks -  Interconnected cracks forming a series of small blocks resembling an alligator’s skin or chicken wire, and caused by excessive deflection of the surface over unstable subgrade or lower course of the pavement.

Compaction -  is the process by which the bulk density of an aggregate of matter is increased by driving out air. For any soil, for a given amount of compactive effort, the density obtained depends on the moisture content. At very high moisture contents, the maximum dry density is achieved when the soil is compacted to nearly saturation, where (almost) all the air is driven out. At low moisture contents, the soil particles interfere with each other; addition of some moisture will allow greater bulk densities, with a peak density where this effect begins to be counteracted by the saturation of the soil.

Crack -  An approximately vertical random cleavage of the pavement caused by traffic loading, thermal stresses and/or aging of the binder.

Crack Filler -  A material that is placed in a pavement crack or joint to fill but not necessarily seal the void created by the crack or joint.

Crack Sealant -  A material that has adhesive and cohesive properties to seal cracks, joints or other narrow openings (less than 1 ½” wide) in pavements against the entrance or passage of water or other debris.

Hairline Cracking -  Barely visible cracks in random pattern in an exposed concrete surface which do not extend to the full depth or thickness of the concrete, and which are due primarily to drying shrinkage.

Overlay -  An HMA overlay constructed for the purpose of increasing the structural value and ride quality of the pavement system.  Also called resurfacing.

Pothole - Bowl-shaped openings in the pavement resulting from localized disintegration.

Raveling -  The gradual roughening of the surface texture. As the fine particles “wash” away it leaves the pavement with course rock on the surface and a much rougher texture than when asphalt first laid.

Reflective Cracking -  Cracks in asphalt overlays that reflect the crack pattern in the pavement structure below it.

Remove and Replace - The act of removing existing pavement and replacing with new pavement to restore pavement to its former condition or to an improved state.

Tack Coat - Asphalt oil, usually emulsion type, applied to existing pavement during repairs or overlay paving to create a bond between the old and new asphalt.
