Asphalt Repair Types Part 2

Building on the previous post, there are many different types and styles of asphalt repair.  These articles are here to give you an insight into how asphalt jobs are approached and the different methods of fixing problems.  Here is the second installment of potential asphalt repair specifications:

  • R&R Asphalt (Remove and Replace Asphalt): The perimeter area of the asphalt mat to be removed and replaced will be fully cut, and the old asphaltic concrete to be removed. New asphalt plantmix designed for asphalt patching or paving is then installed to the same depth and grade as the previous mat. All sides of the area are to be feathered into the remaining asphaltic concrete not removed. No drainage, slope adjustment, or Engineering of any sort is included. Pavement Specialties makes no warranty or guarantee whatsoever on drainage but will warrant for one year any alligatoring of the new asphalt, unless it is apparent that the neighboring non-repaired asphalt mat allowed water intrusion under the newly removed and replaced asphalt plantmix.
  • Paving /Stabilizing Fabric: A commercially manufactured fabric used to stabilize base material or to minimize crack reflection. Paving fabric is to be tacked to the asphalt prior to overlay. Stabilizing fabric is used to separate base materials from subsoil pumping. Pavement Specialties cannot guarantee the effectiveness of the base stability without payment for Laboratory Testing and Consulting.
  • Stabilizing Chemicals: The use of Magnesium Chloride, Lignin Sulfonate, Coherex, or other chemicals designed to stabilize unstable or clay filled subsoils and bases. Pavement Specialties cannot guarantee the effectiveness of the base stability without payment for Laboratory Testing and Consulting.
