Overlay – Resurfacing

overlay-resurfacing image

An overlay or resurface project can be an option rather than a complete removal and replacement of existing parking lot.

This is especially true in the case of parking lots that do not have complete asphalt failure.

Resurfacing a parking lot can be very appealing due to cost, it can be anywhere from 50 to 70 percent cheaper than complete replacement.

Overlay Procedure

  • Clean a parking lot by air power brooming and a wire broom where needed.
  • Tack coat (glue) the existing pavement to bond the new asphalt to the existing pavement.
  • Overlay parking lot with new hot asphalt mix between 2 to 2 ΒΌ inches, to be rolled and compacted.
  • Re-stripe parking lot as it was before overlaying in either white or yellow paint.

Please Note: There might be some exceptions to the Overlay Procedure as listed below.

If you have any failed asphalt (pot holes, crack alligated areas, low areas, etc.) they should be repaired prior to paving to stop/minimize any re-flecking cracking and drainage issues.

You might want the overlay to be thinner or thicker depending on your needs.

You might have to remove and replace or rotomill asphalt at the sidewalks, handicap ramps, curb with gutter and entry ways prior to paving for elevation changes so there are no lips (bumps) at those areas which can cause drainage issues and tripping hazards.
