MINNEAPOLIS – ST PAUL ASPHALT PATCHING SERVICES
Nugent Sealcoating offers different forms of patching tailored to fit your budget and your needs.
CUT OUT PATCHING
Cut out patching consist of saw cutting the perimeter of the damaged area. Removing the asphalt and disposing of the old asphalt. The patches are prepped by re-raking the base tamping to a hard surface, and finally tacking all vertical edges. Then fresh ½” hot mix asphalt is installed and raked to the appropriate height and grade. A two ton roller is used to get complete compaction of the asphalt. Cut outs are the most thorough repair when you have damage to the base.
Skim patching is the most economical patching but is a short term repair. We start with thoroughly cleaning the damaged area with high power brooms and blowers. Tack oil is used to outline and fill the marked areas. We shovel hot buckshot AC mix into the patch and rake to the appropriate height and grade. We then tamp or roll for completion.
STORM SEWER AND MANHOLE PATCHING
The area around storm sewers and manholes deteriorate rapidly due to all the water running around them. Before patching we inspect the internal concrete structures to provide the best proposal to our customers. Still there can be hidden damages that cannot be seen until cut into. This repair is basically the same as a cut out with the addition of repairing the concrete rings or parging the walls before installing the new asphalt.
Mill patching is the perfect balance of economical and a great repair. It’s cheaper per square foot than a full cutout so you get more square footage for your dollars. Also there’s no saw cut seam to maintain down the road. It starts with milling the damaged areas at 2” deep. Then sweep up the millings and dispose. Then install 2” of compacted new hot mix asphalt and roll for completion. Note: Many of our competitors only mill at 1”.
