When you want an affordable alternative to pavement restoration, asphalt milling could be the best option for you. Instead of performing a complete demolition of the area and repaving it, milling is grinding up the surface. This can be just a couple of inches or full-depth removal. Then, you’ll have a smooth and even surface that is perfectly prepared for repaving.

When To Choose Asphalt Milling

Milling is a great option when the pavement has widespread problems. Problems like surface damage such as cracking, reveling, or a slope that is not even. When the issues are just on the surface, your sub base should be in good shape. So you don’t need to fully demolish and then repave. We’ll just fix what’s broken and get your project completed fast and efficiently.

Benefits of Asphalt Milling

  • Instead of repaving over the top of the current surface, milling allows you to restore the pavement and give it a great-looking facelift and keep it at the correct height.
  • Milling even helps the environment. The material is milled from the surface of your project, is easily collected and taken to recycling plants. There, it can be re-used in hot-mix asphalt. In fact, asphalt is one of the most recycled materials in the United States – because of the milling process.
  • The milling process is a great way to focus the work on specific areas that have a problem that needs to be corrected. This means you don’t have to fix the whole area, rather just do what is necessary for the area that needs it.


  • It is more cost effective than other options
  • The milling process does not generate smoke or flames and the dust is easily maintained
  • Restores the drainage flow
  • Adds texture and greater bond to the pavement
  • Added curb appeal
  • Eliminates ruts
  • Creates a uniform cross-section and longitudinal profile
  • Creates a uniform pavement-curb-gutter match

Affordable Pavement Restoration

Asphalt milling is best for pavements with extensive surface damage, such as cracking, raveling, or an uneven slope. There’s no need to completely demolish and resurface because the sub base is still intact. Instead, using a milling machine, the affected layers can be removed and replaced with new hot-mix.

Pavement milling also aids in the management of a variety of other challenges.

Drainage And Pavement Height

An overlay is another option for restoring a pavement’s surface. Because the overlay is a new layer placed on the existing asphalt surface, it raises the height of the pavement each time it is done. Consider it similar to repainting your home’s walls. If you do it enough times, you’ll need to chip the old paint off first.

After multiple overlays on a pavement structure, you won’t be able to increase height to the surface without causing other problems. Asphalt milling allows you to rebuild your pavement while keeping the same height as before.

Environmentally Friendly

When asphalt is milled from the surface, it is collected and delivered to a recycling facility, where it can be used as aggregate in new hot-mix asphalt. Asphalt has become one of the most recycled materials in the United States as a result of this process.

Milling Can Help With Specific Problem Areas

If you have considerable damage to your parking lot or another road surface that is limited to specific areas, asphalt milling allows you to repair that damage without having to resurface the entire area.

Asphalt milling can be used to remove the asphalt to a suitable depth and replace it at the same level as the remainder of the pavement.
