Milling & Reclamation

What Is Milling?

If you want to improve the performance and look of your worn or damaged asphalt without breaking the bank, milling is the way to go. Rather than excavating and removing existing asphalt and installing entirely new asphalt, milling simply replaces the top layer—which is typically a few inches thick. This method has a lower price tag and quicker turnaround time than alternative methods. It also causes fewer traffic flow disruptions.

The Process


We eliminate any obstructions, clean the asphalt surface, and evaluate the existing pavement’s condition.


We remove only the top layer of asphalt using specialized milling equipment. This process involves grinding the existing asphalt layer, which we usually recycle for the new asphalt layer.

Surface Repair

We strengthen the asphalt’s foundation by repairing any damage or irregularities in the layer underneath the asphalt, also called the subgrade.


We pour the new asphalt layer onto the subgrade and compress it to achieve a smooth finish.

Finishing & Marking

We perform any finishing touches, such as line striping and road markings, to the new asphalt layer so it’s ready to be used.

What Is Reclamation?

Reclamation creates a new foundation for a fresh asphalt layer. Since you don’t have to excavate and remove the existing asphalt, this repair technique cuts operating costs and saves valuable time for your business.

The Process

Grind & Blend

We grind and blend the remaining material—along with any soil and aggregates—to create a more durable foundation.
