Concrete/Asphalt Removal

Concrete/Asphalt Removal

Concrete Removal & Replacement Services

Complete and or Isolated Patch Repairs

Conditions that may warrant concrete removal and replacement include:

  • Poor Design. Poor design or construction practices that create locally weak areas within the slab. Poor joint sealant maintenance or improper installation of joint sealants.
  • Large or widespread cracks. Reasons for these conditions vary but possible causes may include unintended weight on the slab, poor sub base preparation, surface water incursion and or poor quality or workmanship.
  • Settled Concrete. The integrity of a concrete slab is dependent on its sub base. Proper sub base material, preparation, water drainage and compaction are critical for the long term performance of a concrete slab. Improper installation of the sub base, environmental conditions such as freeze thaw process and water incursion as well as the expansive nature of local soils can all contribute to concrete surface failure.

Asphalt Removal & Replacement Services

Complete and or Isolated Patch Repairs

Conditions that may warrant asphalt removal and or (FDR) full- depth removal and replacement include:

  • Poor Design. Poor design or construction practices that create locally weak areas within the asphalt surface or sub grade.
  • Rigid and oxidized surface. The asphalt surface has lost its flexibility and become rigid as a result of surface wear, environmental conditions or age thus resulting in failure.  Examples include potholes and or small surface cracks.
  • Failure of sub base. The asphalt surface has failed as a result of base failure or water incursion. A full depth removal and replacement of the base subgrade with stabilized materials and installation of new asphalt surface is warranted.  Examples include larger potholes with evidence of base failure, base migration, or “alligator” cracks on the asphalt surface.
  • (FDR) Full-depth reclamation or pulverization. Full-depth reclamation or pulverization with cement is a cost effective stabilizing pavement solution in which deteriorated asphalt pavement and the underlying base materials are pulverized in place then mixed with cement and water to form a cement-treated stabilized sub grade. A new asphalt surface layer is then installed.
