Asphalt Removal and Replacement

Over time, even the best kept pavement can age and deteriorate.  Cracks can form, allowing water to seep into the sub-grade below the asphalt and the surface can weaken.  In cases such as this, asphalt removal and replacement is often required. 

The paving experts at Buckeye Asphalt Paving Co. can provide a free pavement evaluation to determine if your pavement needs to be removed and replaced, or if other options, such as an asphalt overlay or pothole repair are viable options.  We use over 50 years of experience serving the Toledo, Ohio area to make the right recommendation for each client’s situation.

Removal and Replacement Process

Prior to completing the pavement removal and replacement, our highly trained personnel will thoroughly rate your pavement and the site to determine what changes, if any, need to be made.  Factors such as drainage needs and traffic load will be analyzed, allowing the repairs to be customized to meet each of those needs.  Once a plan is in place and approved, work can begin.

  • The areas to be removed are first marked and then saw to form a neat, true line.  It is important to extend the removal areas a minimum of 1-2 feet beyond the outermost portion of the damaged area.  Then the asphalt is removed and disposed of off site.

  • Our asphalt experts analyze the stone base to determine if it is of sufficient thickness and strength to support the proposed loading.

  • The existing base is leveled, compacted, and top dressed with additional aggregate as needed.

  • The vertical edges of the repair area are then cleaned and treated with a tack coat, which ensures the new asphalt will adhere properly to the existing pavement.

  • The hot asphalt is installed and compacted until smooth. The final thickness will vary based on the needs of the location, however three inches of asphalt is considered a bare minimum. 

  • Finally, the area is sealed around the edges with an elastomeric liquid asphalt to protect against water infiltration.
