Full Depth Reclamation

We'll make YOU look TREMENDOUS !

An Environmental & Budget Friendly Approach

Oftentimes we’re asked to help revitalize asphalt parking lots in various stages of disrepair or have reached the end of their service life. These lots must either be completely removed and replaced, which is very expensive and wasteful, or they can be recycled using full depth reclamation (F.D.R.), an environmentally friendly approach to revitalizing your parking lot.

Our state-of-the-art asphalt reclamation equipment (see video below) grinds up the existing surface to a depth of 6 to 12 inches. A new base is created re-using those same materials, resulting in an appearance much like a standard crushed aggregate base course (also known as CABC).

The reclaimed material from the existing asphalt is treated with cement or lime which becomes the new base, then a new layer of asphalt is installed. In our professional opinion, if your budget allows, this is by far the best solution to repair areas of neglected and/or failed asphalt pavement and is far more economical than removing and replacing the structure.

A 2 Coat Process

A 2-coat application is our standard for sealcoating; however, a third coat may be recommended in heavy traffic areas, typically drive lanes. To preserve a new parking lot, we recommend sealcoating within 12 months of installation to begin your maintenance program, then sealcoat every 2-3 years over the next 10 years. After 10 years, sealcoating does not provide any more value to your parking lot.
