Want to stretch maintenance dollars and have a strong return on your blacktop investment? Chip sealing is a great way to get longer wear out a blacktop/asphalt surface. Chipsealing works on roads, large driveways and large parking lots. Chip sealing is a technique that gives the pavement a small top layer of rock that will allow the area to last longer before needing to be over laid with asphalt or a complete tear out and repave. It consists of a few steps.

  1. The area must be cleaned.  This is also the time to repair any damage to the surface such as patch work and crackfilling.
  2. A thin layer of hot oil will then be put sprayed on the surface.
  3. Once the oil is disbursed then immediately a thick layer small pea size rock is layed on top of the oil
  4. When the rock has had a short time to settle then its rolled into the oil so it can adhere and bond to the surface.
  5. After a few days pending the project, the excess rocks will then be swept and taken off the surface.  At that time, it can be striped if needed.  The final product has just enhanced the site at a new parking area!
