Columbus Parking Lot
Asphalt resurfacing is a maintenance service that involves adding a fresh layer of asphalt to your parking lot. If a parking lot is ready for a new asphalt surface, then a decision needs to be made regarding the existing asphalt. If possible, we want to leave the existing asphalt in place to keep the thickness, which equates to the strength of the lot. When we add on to that depth with a new layer of asphalt, effectively we are providing a new surface and improving the overall strength at the same time. The alternative to overlay is to mill a certain depth of the existing asphalt and then pave back at the same depth. With that operation, the actual strength of the lot is not necessarily improved, but you get the benefits of a new surface. One of our experienced estimators would be happy to walk you through those decisions and present which solution is right for you and your parking lot.

TWO WAYS TO KNOW YOU NEED ASPHALT RESURFACING
Does your parking lot’s pavement have a lot of shallow, interconnected cracks? Asphalt resurfacing can bridge those minor gaps by applying a brand-new layer of asphalt.
Does your parking lot’s pavement look uneven? Over time, heavy vehicles can make your pavement warp and buckle. Asphalt resurfacing can level up your parking lot and provide a new layer for vehicles and foot traffic.
THE ASPHALT RESURFACING PROCESS
First, our team visits your property to assess the damage. Once we’ve determined asphalt resurfacing is the most appropriate repair service, we calculate the scope of the project and give you a free estimate.
To prepare for asphalt resurfacing, our team removes all the obstacles from your parking lot, including parking blocks and speed bumps, these will be reset and reconstructed upon completion. We may need to adjust utility structures as well.
In any parking lot there are match lines where existing asphalt meets flush with concrete and/or other asphalt that is to remain. ADA areas are flush for wheelchair accessibility, so a layer of asphalt needs to be removed to maintain that grade. Catch basins can sometimes require some milling in preparation for overlay as well.
If included in our scope of work, repairs are sometimes needed to replace damaged areas prior to resurfacing. Existing asphalt in these areas are removed and new asphalt is placed and compacted prior to paving the entire lot.
At Tolliver and Curl, we use a liquid asphalt tack coat between the new layer of asphalt and the old. This tack coat is a bonding agent to keep the new pavement from slipping on the old and eliminates potential water penetration that could delaminate the layers of asphalt. Though often skipped by our competition, this step is very important to the process and a direct result of our commitment to providing the highest quality pavement solutions.
Finally, we apply the new layer of asphalt to your parking lot. The final result is a smooth, durable, and level asphalt surface.
ASPHALT RESURFACING VS. MILL AND PAVE
Should you resurface your parking lot or completely repave it? The answer depends on the extent of the damage. If your pavement isn’t that old and the damage is surface-level, asphalt resurfacing is probably the most appropriate repair service. However, if your asphalt pavement is older and its base layers are failing, a new layer of asphalt will not solve the problem.
Our team can help if you’re unsure which service is most appropriate for your parking lot. We’ll visit your property, inspect the damage, and give you our honest recommendation for the work that needs to be done.
ASPHALT RESURFACING VS. SEALCOATING
Asphalt resurfacing and asphalt sealcoating are similar but different. The main difference is that resurfacing involves adding a new layer of asphalt to your pavement whereas sealcoating involves adding a layer of sealant. Sealcoating is a preventative service that protects your pavement from future damage, while asphalt resurfacing is a repair service that fixes your pavement when it has already been damaged.
