Asphalt Chipseal Process
Of all the asphalt repair services, asphalt chipseal is by far the most effective method for replacing your parking lot. So, how does the chip seal asphalt process work?
Chipseal replacement is a pavement method that combines one or more layers of asphalt with fine aggregate. Asphalt chipsealing is created with the same ingredients as asphalt paving. However, the difference is that this method introduces the key aggregate that forms the “chips.” These chips are heavily compacted within asphalt surfaces to provide an even, smooth finish. Once applied, chip and seal protect your parking lot by creating a solid barrier between the old and new surface, ensuring your asphalt remains intact. Remember, “CHIPSEAL is the real deal!”
