Asphalt Paving / Overlay

Asphalt overlay/repaving is simply applying a new layer of hot asphalt over the existing asphalt. The current pavement should be relatively sound and should not contain large areas of base failure. In some cases the current asphalt must be repaired before installing an overlay. This is to prevent the new layer from conforming to the old layers failures. Asphalt overlay/repaving provides a practical and economical way to extend the life of the asphalt.

Proper steps to apply Asphalt overlay:

  • Evaluate current asphalt conditions
  • Repair weak areas as necessary
  • Machine clean asphalt to remove any debris
  • Apply a tack coat of RS1 to adhere new sphalt to the existing asphalt
  • Overlay with a minimum of 1” Hot asphalt
  • Stripe back to existing layout
