Grinding and Pulverizing

Grinding asphalt has a number of different applications depending on the particular result desired. Grinding is typically done on a linear foot basis to enable a smooth transition from an existing asphalt surface to one that will be newly paved. Usually a small grinder is used to grind away 1″ to 2″ of existing asphalt, so that as the new asphalt that is laid adjacent to the old asphalt has a smooth transition from one to the other.

Pulverizing is a method that mixes the existing asphalt with the base material anywhere from 5 “ to 12”, or more. This method allows for the existing asphalt to be salvaged and recycled on the property as a stronger base material. Any excess material will be hauled off site and used as base material for future jobs in the community.
