Expert Asphalt Paving Services You Can Trust

Providing expert asphalt paving services in New Jersey, Delaware, and Pennsylvania.

Typically the winter months of December 20th – March 15th are off-peak for asphalt, concrete and pavement maintenance services. In the Mid-Atlantic market the temperatures historically fluctuate between below freezing and above freezing throughout the winter months. These temperature fluctuations wreak havoc on asphalt and concrete through the constant expansion and contraction of asphalt & concrete substrates from the freeze/thaw cycle.

Our asphalt paving division is available for all your asphalt repair, recycling, drainage, catch basin repair, and paving needs. It handles projects as small as single-pot repairs and up to 6,000-ton resurfacing projects. In addition, our in-place recycling services can help you earn LEED points and save valuable budget dollars.

Asphalt Resurfacing In New Jersey


What Is Asphalt?

Asphalt concrete, normally known simply as asphalt or (HMA) hot mix asphalt, is a composite material commonly used for construction of pavement, highways and parking lots. It consists of asphalt binder and mineral aggregate mixed together then laid down in layers and compacted.

Types of Asphalt

  • 1/4” Surface Mix (Used for resurfacing, not ideal for high truck traffic areas or extreme turns)
  • 3/8” Surface Mix (Used for 90% of asphalt resurfacing projects)
  • 1/2” Surface Mix/Structural Overlay (Used for high traffic parking lots, medium truck areas, when budgets are tight, and a 2” – 3” full depth patch or mill and replace project is being completed).
  • 3/4” Base Mix (Used as a patching binder in 2” – 4” depths and as a base installation over fine graded stone prior to installing a 2” asphalt overlay)

If your parking lot has reached the end of its service life and is experiencing severe cracking, alligator cracking, rutting, heaving, pot holes or areas of standing water, it is time to invest in an asphalt overlay.

An asphalt overlay usually installs a 2” compacted mat of asphalt with either 3/8” stone or 1/4” stone.

Resurfacing varies on the parking lot surface. For example, if you have an overlay that needs to be performed on a high-traffic parking lot and the lot needs to remain open during resurfacing, we may use a 1/2” mix. We would use this larger mix in the asphalt to reduce power steering marks and possible shoving of the mix in turn lanes while still tender.

Preparation of the Asphalt Overlay

Pot Holes- Prior to installing the asphalt overlay, all pot holes should be square-cut, excavated to the stone base and repaired with a base mix asphalt (3/4” stone).

Rutting / Areas Of Standing Water / Heaving- Prior to installing the asphalt overlay, all rutted areas and areas of standing water should receive a leveling course to remove surface imperfections.

If a parking lot is very old and has many areas of small puddles or waviness, a 1/4” leveling course should be applied to the parking lot to bring the surface to a 100% level grade.

Any heaved or raised areas should be cut down with a milling head or jack hammer to prevent resurfacing through the new asphalt overlay.

If the heaved area is due to frost, it is advisable to excavate the area to a depth of 18” – 24” and install clean stone to prevent future heaving.


Geotextile Fabric Reinforced Asphalt Resurfacing In New Jersey

IMG_1891 IMG_1889

Geotextile paving fabric is the single most cost-effective preparation item that can be installed.

Studies by the Federal Highway Administration have shown, having a geotextile fabric install prior to resurfacing can reduce reflective cracking by 80% over the life of a 15-year overlay.

For less than $0.25 sq ft, you can help extend the life of your overlay to 15 – 20 years without the pavement re-cracking. **If installed in the beginning**

Paving Fabric also provides a moisture barrier preventing water from pumping to the surface from hydrostatic pressure.

Depending on the severity of alligator cracked areas, heaving, and rutting, you may want to address the areas with either full-depth reclamation (4” – 6” ) and install Binder Asphalt (3/4” stone) before installing the fabric or if budgets are tight, mill down 2” and install 2” of Binder asphalt (3/4”) stone.


Most asphalt overlays are installed improperly and usually do not last 2 years before the cracks resurface into the new asphalt. This is not the fault of the property manager, but rather the contractor. Some contractors, being fully aware of the additional services available to strengthen an overlay do not recommend them because they become involved in local or national “price wars” and do not want their price to be higher than the others. For instance, if you install a 2” average overlay over alligator-cracked pavement or large cracks, those same cracks will reflect through the new overlay at an average rate of 1” per year. In effect, after 2 years, your new parking lot will resemble the same crack patterns and areas of deficiencies that the old parking lot had.

How would you feel if you just spent $150,000.00 to overlay a parking lot and in 2 years it looks the same as it did prior? You would probably be pretty frustrated. The truth of the matter is that there are several technologies and processes that are available to prevent this from happening; however, finding a contractor who will recommend them will be similar to finding a needle in a haystack.

**The Math is simple: 100,000 sq ft parking lot overlay**

  • Overlay the parking lot without making the necessary upgrades and in 2 years your parking lot will need to be overlaid again. $170,000.00 parking lot, 2-year service life (Cost Per Year / Per Sq Ft: $0.85)
  • Crack Seal and Install a Geotextile Crack Retardant Fabric. Service life extended to 15 years. (Cost Per Year / Per Sq Ft: $0.07)
  • Do you see why spending an additional $0.60 sq ft up front will save $0.36 sq ft over a 15 yr period?

Crack Sealing Before Paving


At a minimum, a parking lot needs to be crack-sealed before installing an asphalt overlay to defer reflective cracking for 3 – 5 years.



Asphalt Milling & Paving In New Jersey

Asphalt milling and paving is the process of milling the existing asphalt to a specified depth and installing a new layer of asphalt at a compacted thickness of 1.5" to 2.5".   



Asphalt Recycling (In Place) / Asphalt Pulverization:

(Green Alternative for LEED Points)

NJ Asphalt RecyclingAsphalt Recycling

Pulverization and In-place recycling is a cost-effective alternatives for asphalt parking lots that may have areas of base failure or elevations that are too high to allow another pavement overlay.

In-place recycling is useful for a situation where there is moderate – excellent sub-base material currently in place (i.e.: 6” – 12” of solid stone base) and a thin layer of asphalt (1 ½” – 3”) currently in place.

Asphalt Pulverization—

the economical and efficient way to recycle parking lots in place:

Pulverizing is a recycling process that grinds existing asphalt in place in a single pass and blends it with the underlying materials to form a quality base material.

Pulverizing & Recycling has the following advantages:

  • Reuse of existing materials eliminates disposal problems.
  • Reduction in costs over hauling off asphalt and importing granular fill or ABC.
  • Proven to conserve natural resources.
  • Faster project completion times.
  • Facilitates correction of pavement profile.
  • Reduction of heavy trucks on roadways hauling off broken asphalt and hauling in virgin materials.

When deteriorated asphalt pavements are recycled in place, a technique known as full-depth reclamation can be used.

The flexible pavement and a pre-determined portion of the underlying base material are milled and pulverized to a depth ranging from (6 to 12 inches) or more. The pulverized material is mixed within the reclaiming machine while stabilization reagents (such as lime or Portland cement and fly ash) and water are introduced and blended with the pulverized recycled paving aggregate. The reclaimer is then followed by grading, spreading, and compaction equipment working in the same manner and sequence as if plant-mixed PSM material were delivered and placed at

When soliciting proposals for an office building in my portfolio I contacted three paving companies. had a strong initial presentation from our first site meeting.  A company representative scheduled a meeting onsite.  He then pointed out issues I was experiencing in the asphalt that the other two paving companies did not include on their proposals.  Steven explained if these underground water issues are not repaired prior to paving, the paving job will only last a few years before it begins to crack.  Their solid scope of work, pictures, and report they provided made my job easier to explain to ownership why we wanted to invest the extra budget dollars to do the job the correct way.
