Asphalt Milling Service In Richmond, VA

Asphalt Milling is a great way to repair or resurface your asphalt driveway, parking lot, or roadway without replacing the entire structure.

What Is Asphalt Milling?

Welcome to the Richard’s Paving asphalt milling page. But what is asphalt milling? If you own a home in Richmond, VA, or any of the surrounding areas, asphalt milling might be the most cost-effective way to get your driveway looking brand new.

Asphalt Milling is also called cold planing or profiling. It’s when a contractor uses a milling machine to remove a certain amount of the existing pavement while leaving the sub-base intact. The machine then grinds the asphalt surface and collects the pavement.

Then a new layer of hot asphalt is applied to create a new surface. When would you want to consider asphalt milling to repair your driveway, parking lot, or roadway? In the next section you will find out.

When Will You Need Asphalt Milling?

If your driveway, parking lot, or roadway’s asphalt surface has widespread damage that hasn’t penetrated the sub-base, then you might be a candidate for asphalt milling. Asphalt milling is a more cost-effective way to repair the pavement’s entire surface area than a full replacement.

Widespread Surface Deterioration

This is when most of the asphalt’s surface has faded or deteriorated, but the sub-layer is intact and not cracked.

Level Uneven Surfaces

Asphalt milling is the perfect way to repair a driveway or parking lot that has become uneven due to traffic.

Changing Pavement Height

Milling and adding a larger asphalt overlay can be helpful to increase the surfaces ability to handle traffic.

Improving Pavement Drainage

Sometimes the slope of the pavement needs to be adjusted so rainwater can drain properly.

What are some more benefits of asphalt milling?

Asphalt milling is environmentally friendly because it creates aggregate that can be recycled for future projects, improves the asphalt’s surface to prevent skidding, it’s a less expensive form of repair, and doesn’t interrupt traffic as much (when done on roadways). 

How is asphalt milling cheaper?

Asphalt milling is cheaper than resurfacing because it uses recycled asphalt pavement. That means if the sub-base layer isn’t damaged you could fix a much larger surface area at a lower cost.

Is there a way I can tell if asphalt milling & overlay is right for me?

This is difficult to determine. Asphalt milling is a perfect way to repair the entire surface of a driveway, parking lot, or roadway that has deteriorated and faded, but the sub-base is intact. When you contact us we can come take a look and make sure you are a candidate for this service.
