Our services include preventative maintenance and resurfacing of asphalt streets, roads, parking lots and highways.
Chip seal is an evenly distributed layer of emulsified asphalt that is applied onto an existing surface. A single layer of graded aggregate is embedded into the emulsified asphalt, is rolled, swept and fog sealed to complete the process. Ideal chip seal applications include residential streets, industrial / commercial streets, low and high volume roads, and heavy load roads.
Double Chip Seal
A double chip seal is two layers of chip seal applied immediately after one another. A larger aggregate (3/8″) is used on the first application followed by a smaller aggregate (1/4″) on the final application (stacking).
Chip Seal Underlayment
Chip seal underlayment is a chip seal that provides a waterproof membrane prior to the placement of a thin lift of hot asphalt such as Open Graded Friction Course, Hot Chip Seal, Plant Mix Seal and other hot applied thin lift asphalt.
Fog seal is a light application of a diluted slow-setting asphalt emulsion to the surface of an aged (oxidized) pavement surface. Fog seals are low-cost and are used to restore flexibility to an existing HMA pavement surface.
A sprayed application of asphalt emulsion followed by a covering of clean sand or fine aggregate. A pneumatic-tire roller is often used after applying the sand. Excess sand is removed from the surface after rolling.
Removal of debris lessens the opportunity of skids and collisions, and also allows drivers to safely judge distance to curbs and roadway edges.
To achieve best results from a chip seal, it’s best to have the structure as stable as possible.
