Extend the life of your surfaces.

Did you know that sealcoating and crack sealing a newly paved surface will extend its life dramatically? Delaying this process will ultimately cost you more in repairs over time. Our professionals work concisely, with the highest industry standards and practices, to prolong the pavement life and preserve its functional properties.

Asphalt Sealcoating

Here are some of the services that we provide:

  • Asphalt Sealcoating
  • Crack Sealing
  • Crack Rout & Seal
  • Asphalt Infrared Restoration
  • Asphalt Cut & Patch
  • Drainage Installation & Repair
  • Underdrain & Channel Drains
  • Curbing & Sidewalk Repair
  • Speed Bump & Hump Installation
  • Line Striping, Signs & Bollards
  • ADA Compliance
  • Sweeping
  • Pressure Washing
  • Snow & Ice Management Services

Sealcoating replaces the fine mineral aggregates that have worn off the pavement surface through time and the elements of weather. By sealing a pavement surface, we not only restore its original dark black color and shield against the harmful elements, but most importantly, extend the service life of the pavement at a fraction of its replacement cost. A naturally occurring degrading action of asphalt is called raveling, wherein the asphalt components – sand and stone – loosen up and detach; once this process begins, it continues in a rapidly increasing manner. After time you can visually see the raveling, in the forms of buckling and rough spots. Seal Coating helps halt the progression of this process and increase the surface friction it provides.

Crack Sealing – 3 Installation Types

Moisture gains infiltration through potholes and unsealed cracks. By crack sealing you will significantly reduce moisture entering the sub-base, extending the life of the surface dramatically. For pennies per foot you now have implemented the most economical and effective repair. Shrinkage is the primary reason most cracks appear in asphalt and concrete surfaces. Time and weather conditions such as rain, wind, sun and ice cause this occurrence.

Preferred Option: Crack Rout & Seal Method
First we mechanically rout the existing crack to a minimum of ½ inch wide and ½ inch deep to create a reservoir and an exceptional bonding surface for the crack sealant. Next we heat lance and/or remove the debris by a sweeper, to ensure a clean and dry surface. Once achieved, installation of the highly rubberized crack sealant (sealants meet or exceed ASTM D3405 and AASHTO M301) is placed into the crack and struck off flush with the pavement surface. Once the sealant has been placed into the joint, black beauty silica sand is dusted on top to allow traffic flow within minutes of application. By creating this reservoir with the mechanical router, the sealant that is ½ inch thick will repeatedly withstand freeze thaw cycles.

Alternate Option: Over-Banding Method
All cracks are cleaned by compressed air and/or wire wheels to remove all dirt, vegetation and debris. Once achieved, installation of the highly rubberized crack sealant (sealants meet or exceed ASTM D3405 and AASHTO M301) is placed into the crack and struck off flush with the pavement surface. Application of joint sealant will be applied by injection or speed banning gravity equipment. Once the sealant has been placed into the joint, black beauty silica sand is dusted on top to allow traffic flow within minutes of application.

Curb Line Edge Sealing
Your properties curb lines are the water paths for all of your storm water runoff. By sealing your entire curb to pavement interfaces, you will eliminate water penetration. As of 2016, as a new service to our clients, we have developed a proprietary device in order to apply this sealant. It is important to note that we only recommend this along solid poured curb types for aesthetic reasons.

Asphalt Patching

As an asphalt pavement progresses through its lifecycle, isolated areas of failure occur. Generally, an area that is alligator cracked will need to be removed and replaced. The substrate is then re-compacted. Upon a satisfactory proof roll of the substrate, new asphalt is installed to the proper line and grade. Compaction is achieved by a steel drum roller and/or vibratory plate compactor.

Without asphalt repair and maintenance efforts in place, these once small cracks evolve into major water entryways undermining the substrate. Now an action of saw cutting and removing of the section must take place. Failed areas are then marked and either saw cut or milled to remove the failed pavement sections. Once removed, areas are prepped and tack coated, followed by an asphalt re-installation process. Depth of repair will vary.

Line Striping

Maintaining the pavement markings in your parking lot will greatly improve the overall appearance of your facility. Many property and facility managers will use parking lot striping for an affordable means to improve the appearance of their properties. Parking lots that are properly laid-out and painted will create a sense of safety and organization for vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

Advanced Pavement Group knows the ADA striping laws that apply to the pavement markings in your parking facility. Whether your parking lot striping project is new construction or maintenance, Advanced Pavement Group can complete the job with quality and efficiency at a reasonable price.

If your project requires latex, thermoplastic, epoxy or other materials, we have the experience to guide your decisions and get the job done right.
We are also familiar with and adhere to the various municipal safety requirements needed to safely stripe your long line project.

Infrared Asphalt Restoration

Infrared Asphalt Restoration works by penetrating and softening existing pavement with high intensity heat from infrared rays, allowing it to be raked and easily removed. The final product is NOT a patch. Instead, infrared repairs are thermally bonded to the surrounding asphalt to create a seamless asphalt repair. Using infrared heating creates a much better adherence between old and new asphalt. This adherence allows for a smooth, gradual and seamless transition that water cannot penetrate. However, it is not the solution for all asphalt defects.

How Infrared Asphalt Restoration Works:

  1. Infrared Chamber is placed over the damaged area and heated to a depth of 2”.
  2. Area will then be scarified with a rake and a portion of the old asphalt is removed.
  3. Apply liquid Cyclogen LE (Maltenes Rejuvenator) asphalt rejuvenator along with new hot mix asphalt to area.
  4. Compact using vibratory roller.
