So how does an overlay work? Here’s the way it works:

  • Existing pavement (parking lot, loading zone, road) is professionally cleaned
  • Any minor repairs like crack filling are performed; more serious damage like potholes are fixed with asphalt patching
  • The overlay is performed: a fresh layer of hot asphalt is poured over the clean, repaired surface. This layer is compacted and graded.
  • It’s recommended that you seal a new overlay with a sealcoating to preserve the pavement.

What Asphalt Overlay Can Fix

  • An aging pavement surface that’s dry or brittle
  • Pavement that has a stable, intact gravel aggregate base
  • Older pavement that’s been repaired several times already
  • Pavement with different levels

What Overlays Can’t Fix

  • Asphalt over 20-25 years old
  • Any pavement that has a damaged subbase
  • Pavement damaged from drainage issues
  • Asphalt that hasn’t been cleaned or thoroughly repaired
