If the old asphalt has not been adequately maintained or has exceeded its useful life expectancy, it may need to be replaced & removed. During this process, the old asphalt is usually completely removed. Additional steps may need to be taken after inspecting the existing base. Mud, shallow utilities, excessive moisture, or subgrade instability may not be discovered until old asphalt is removed. During our inspection, we will determine the most effective way to correct these conditions. After all, things are corrected, and the stone base is installed, graded, and compacted.
