Milling & Reclamation

Cincinnati Asphalt - Milling & Reclamation

What Is Milling?

Milling is a cost-effective way to maintain asphalt on a budget. This process involves removing the top layer of damaged asphalt and resurfacing it.

How We Do It

The Prep Work

We first assess and prepare the area, removing any debris before beginning the milling process.


We use specialized machinery to grind and remove your old asphalt, usually recycling it for new asphalt.

Surface Repair

Once we mill your asphalt, we’ll repair the surface for any irregularities.


Next, we apply a fresh layer of hot asphalt for a smooth, unified surface.

Finishing & Marking

Once the asphalt has been laid, we will finish up the process with the necessary lines, signs, and traffic or ADA markings.

What About Reclamation?

Reclamation eliminates the need for excavation and removal of old asphalt. Instead, reclamation establishes a stronger foundational layer for fresh asphalt. See how we do it below.

How We Do It

Grind & Blend (That's It)

Full-depth reclamation is a process that combines the existing asphalt, gravel base, and sub-grade materials. They are then pulverized and mixed together. Water is added to the pulverized material to achieve the proper moisture content for compaction and then the recycled material is set to grade. Next, the cement is blended in which results in a stronger, stabilized base course.

The end product is a low-maintenance, performance-improved parking lot or roadway that will last for many years.

Full-depth reclamation (FDR) uses the old surface and base material. There’s no need to haul in aggregate or haul out old material for disposal. Truck traffic is reduced, and there is little or no waste. Most importantly, recycling costs are significantly less than the removal and replacement of the old surface.
