In order to maximize the life of your asphalt parking lot, it is important to speak with a professional that can plan routine inspections and ongoing preventative maintenance. Maintenance for asphalt pavement includes the following:
Overlays are patches generally 1 inch or less in thickness. Overlays are often used to fill depressions, in which case the patch could be as thick as 4 inches.
An Overlay goes over the existing pavement and is only used when the base has not failed. This allows for drainage or for a low budget short term fix. Usually overlayed areas are used to improve the appearance of pavement or to stop water penetration.
Resurfacing an area involves the placement of one or more asphalt overlays on top of existing pavements. A hot mix asphalt overlay can include a leveling course to even out the pavement surface and a second uniform course to provide the necessary thickness. Resurfacing in parking lots generally requires only one overlay.
When preparing pavements for resurfacing, the base must be blown or swept completely clean in order for a tack coat to adhere. This tack coat will ensure that the new pavement sticks to the older asphalt surface.
