Asphalt Milling Services by the experts at 3-D Paving throughout South Florida

Asphalt contractors can employ a variety of techniques and machines when installing, repairing, or maintaining a pavement. You are probably familiar with some of them. Perhaps you have witnessed a rolling machine in operation during a road construction project, seen the evidence of a crack repair in your local store’s parking lot, or heard about the benefits of asphalt sealcoating. However, many people are far less familiar with an extremely useful and versatile technique known as asphalt milling.

Asphalt Milling is the process of removing the top layer of asphalt that's damaged in preparation for a new layer of asphalt to be installed. Large asphalt milling machine pictured here by 3-D Paving & Sealcoating in Coral Springs, FL.

What Is Asphalt Milling?

Essentially, milling involves using specialized machines to grind away asphalt pavement. Milling machines can be set to remove a very precise depth of the pavement, so it is possible to remove just a few millimeters. Alternatively, it is also possible to remove the full depth of the pavement, including the base layers. The removed particles are conveyed to a collection point or dump truck to expedite removal from the site.

What Is the Purpose of Asphalt Milling?

Asphalt milling can be used for many different purposes. Here are some of the most common reasons for milling a pavement.

  • Milling a pavement prior to installing an overlay helps retain the correct elevation of existing gutters, drains, curbing, and other peripheral features. It also creates a surface that will foster better bonding of the overlay to the existing pavement.
  • Milling is frequently used on existing pavements to create rumble strips on the shoulders of highways or near potentially hazardous intersections. Often found on dark, rural highways, rumble strips can help catch the attention of sleepy, bored, or distracted drivers so that potential accidents can be avoided.
  • Milling can be used to make the transition between two different pavements a smoother, less-jarring experience. The transition may be between a street and a residential driveway, between two adjacent parking lots, or between a street and the entrance to a parking lot or garage.
  • Milling is often used to repair pavements damaged by fires, accidents, vandalism, or abuse. Milling may also be a good option for repairing certain types of pavement distress, including rutting, raveling, shoving, and bleeding.
  • Milling can frequently resolve certain types of drainage issues, including incorrect pavement slope and surface depressions that allow water to collect on top of the pavement.

What Are the Advantages of Asphalt Milling?

Milling is an economical procedure that is far less costly than traditional remove-and-replace techniques. It is also faster, so traffic can have access in less time, minimizing congestion and disruption. There is virtually no limit to the number of times the same area can be milled, which can help you postpone a reconstruction or major repair. In addition, milling is an environmentally friendly procedure; the removed particles are fully recyclable.

Benefits of Asphalt Milling

Speed

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.

Long-term Savings

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.

Accurate Removal

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.

Surface Integrity

Proper milling removes debris and imperfections in the surface. This ensures that the top layers are smooth and retain their structural integrity.

Sustainable

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.
