The asphalt paving company most trusted by developers and commercial construction firms in Los Angeles County California, El Camino Asphalt, recently performed an asphalt milling and overlay project in Santa Monica CA. These services are vital for parking lots and roadways to keep them looking good for longer, and we were happy to help the residents of a new condo building stay safe on the road in front of their units.
Asphalt milling involves using specialized paving equipment to grind away the top few layers of pavement, exposing the layer underneath and leaving a texture that allows for greater adhesion of a new asphalt layer. Applying this top coat of new pavement is called asphalt overlay, and it can be performed on any pavement that is structurally sound. A roadway or parking lot that has lots of cracks, rutting, depressions, or issues with the subgrade isn’t a good candidate, as those issues need to be addressed first.
On the roadway in Santa Monica CA, El Camino Asphalt milled away the top layer and then applied 2 inches of asphalt before compressing and smoothing the surface. We safely routed traffic around the project and completed it quickly so the construction contractors could get back to work.
El Camino Asphalt is the trusted paving company in Santa Monica CA for pavement restoration services like asphalt milling and overlay because we not only have the right paving equipment but because we understand the needs of general contractors and real estate developers.
