If one thing stands true about Asphalt Repair Services, its the undeniable fact that no "one size fits all" solution exists. Each project we look at has a custom solution that will not only repair the problem, but it will repair it for the smallest amount of time and cost to the customer. Asphalt grinding is a perfect example of one of those custom solutions. Not every job is a perfect candidate for asphalt grinding, however, when it is a good fit, it can save our customers thousands of dollars. This is the case of our project we took on in Los Angeles, California. The project consisted of a parking structure with a paved ground floor level. The asphalt in the driveway was worn and needed to be replaced, however the asphalt in the parking stalls we’re in good shape and the asphalts integrity was still intact. This combination is what lead to the solution we presented.
To understand the advantages of asphalt grinding you have to understand the process. Grinding asphalt only removes a small portion of your parking lots surface. So, in the case of this asphalt repair project, grinding first saved our customer the need to remove a large portion of their asphalt. Not only does this greatly cut down on the the cost of the asphalt used during this type of asphalt repair, it also cuts down on dump fees for the removal of asphalt as well as labor to both remove and install the new parking lot. For our customer, instead of having to replace hundreds of tons of asphalt, we reduced it to just 10 -20 tons of asphalt. Another advantage to asphalt grinding versus replacement is that it restores pavement to a uniform cross-section and longitudinal profile, restores even drainage flow and, it can help in restoring curb-reveal for roadways and parking areas that have had numerous overlays.
