What is Milling?
Milling is the process of removing layers of asphalt, usually 1-4 inches and laying new asphalt over the existing layers. This type of repair is common because it is much more cost effective than completely removing all the asphalt, grading and starting from scratch as long as drainage is not an issue.
Asphalt maintenance is essential to maximize the lifespan of your parking lot or road. Because asphalt contracts and expands with temperature changes you will typically get hairline cracks usually 60-90 days after paving. These cracks are normal based on the materials that make up asphalt. However, it is important to fill cracks ½ an inch or wider. If you allow the cracks to grow water will get under the asphalt, expand and contract and pop up in jagged formations called “alligating”. This can lead to pot holes and an uneven driving area. If you are a business owner who needs help maintaining your parking lot in New Mexico TLC is experienced in maintaining your asphalt.

Asphalt Seal Coating
Another part of maintaining your asphalt consists of having it seal coated. Seal coating generally consists of an emulation oil & water and laid over the existing asphalt. Not only will this make the asphalt look like black new asphalt it gives it a protective coating from UV rays and weather.
