What is Asphalt Milling?
Asphalt milling is a process of removing and breaking down existing layers of asphalt in preparation for the paving of new layers. The milled asphalt is sent away for recycling and can be used again in a future asphalt construction project.
Why Use Asphalt Milling Services?
Asphalt milling removes broken and damaged layers of paving. It is an important step in the repair process because it creates a level and consistent base when installing the next layer. Proper preparation ensures that the next layer is strong and durable, and free from defects.

Asphalt milling is a relatively fast process. It is only necessary to remove damaged layers and sections, which prevents having to rip up entire pathways and highways. Milling machines can cut large areas of asphalt in a short space of time.
By ensuring the proper consistency of the base layer before repaving, asphalt milling ensures that defects and deformities in the existing surface will not reflect in the new paving, resulting in fewer repairs down the road.
Milling machines are accurate and precise. The depth of asphalt removed is specified which ensures uniform removal even if the existing surface is riddled with divots and bumps.
Proper milling removes debris and imperfections in the surface. This ensures that the top layers are smooth and retain their structural integrity.
Millings can be reused. In some cases, it is possible to use the surface that has been removed as its own replacement. Recycling asphalt means that it is a sustainable surface.
