Accurate Asphalt Sawing & Road Cutting Services
Asphalt is primarily made as a mixture of stone, gravel, sand, bitumen as a black viscose material that holds the entire surface together. Asphalt is a main material for roads, driveways and its needs to be very strong to resist the weight of heavy vehicles and weather conditions (sun, heat, cold, snow) and water damage. For instance the sun cooks and dries the asphalt so it can lose its elasticity, leaving the surface with cracks and chance to erode quickly. Once a hole is created the original colour of the asphalt begins to pale, after a while it will fade away and get grey appearance. The greying is a clear sign that asphalt becomes less resistant to cracking.
Material loses its thickness and plasticity so there are huge chances to further fail. Regular maintenance and reparations are important before the cracks enlarge and turn into potholes in the entire surface.
To decide if the parking needs renovating there are some obvious signs. When there are cracks on it or you can see rocks and pieces of stones on it, than you need to have your parking repaired. When choosing asphalt contractor, price is not everything. There are many circumstances that can affect the total price and the outcome of a project. Besides, registered and licenced companies have worked with thousands of customers and can make more quality work to fit your budget and needs. Utility contractors must use material that will resist the future pressure and blades that are precisely made for maximum performance for roadways. Most of the material is recycled and reused again, so using a new mixture with a smaller amount of recycled material is always a better solution.
Asphalt sawing procedure sometimes is necessary when we want to replace and repair different pieces from the road and fill the holes. When the surface becomes more and more thinner and there are obvious holes in the surface while stones and rocks become more visible, water seeps down in the pavement causing cracks to expand.
The procedure of asphalt cutting requires diamond and sharp blade specially made for roadway cutting. Deterioration begins on smaller surfaces damaged by weather conditions.Regardless of the reason for asphalt cutting, whether we need to fill holes on the roads or to remove the entire surface there are some initial steps we need to undertake.
Steps for Cutting Asphalt;
- First step: protection is most important, so ensure the surface you will be sawing is free of all debris, so your saw won’t be interrupted by stones and dust.
- Second Phase: Mark the Working surface – When we need to cut only the damaged surface and the other surface is usable and in a good shape. For example, all the pieces from the remaining surface must have square and precise edges.
- Third Step: Cutting – never turn off the saw while the blade is running otherwise you will break the blade. The size of the blades of excavation is correlated with the size of the surface that has been damaged.
All the pieces that have been removed must be fulfilled with a compact material before the paving. After the base is placed, remaining holes in the area should be filled with new asphalt.
