RESURFACING/RECAPPING (BLACKTOP TO BLACKTOP)

Resurfacing is a process of mindfully going back to the root of a problem and examining how it has manifested in your life. It’s a way to change the narrative around a past event, to see its impact on you now, and to choose what story you want for yourself going forward. Recapping is similar but may be done with an object or material rather than an event or memory. Baltimore Blacktop specializes in resurfacing and recapping blacktop surfaces. Our process is a simple one, from start to finish. We first remove the existing concrete material with an asphalt driveway removal machine. Next, we’ll grade the area so that it’s level for new construction or resurfacing work. Finally, we’ll cover your project with hot mix asphalt (HMA) using our paving equipment to get you back on track!

What Is Resurfacing or Recapping (Blacktop to Blacktop)?

The process of concrete resurfacer of a blacktop surface is one that entails removing the old asphalt and then laying down new material. This can be done with a variety of different methods, but it’s most often done by using a paver machine to lay down the new material. The new layer is laid over the old layer in order to create an even surface for vehicles to drive on. You’ll find this type of concrete resurfacer is being used on highways, parking lots, and public roads all across America! In many cases, you’ll also need some sort of curbing installed around the perimeter as well as any other markings such as lane lines or crosswalks.

This can also be a complete replacement, temporary fix, or surface renewal of a new driveway. This kind of process is used by many especially having extensive damage in a concrete slab. Don’t worry because with Baltimore Blacktop you will get our service at a lower price.

How Is It Different Than a Traditional Asphalt Job (Paving to Paving)?

Concrete paving is a more durable and long-lasting option for your asphalt driveway jobs. Not only will it last longer than traditional paving, but you can also add in decorative options such as brick pavers to add character to the project. On top of all that, concrete paving offers a much better return on investment because there is no need for sealant or resurfacing after 10 years like with asphalt! Concrete paving also doesn’t require any maintenance like weeding and filling cracks; instead it stays looking beautiful year round. So if you’re considering an asphalt driveway job (paving to pavement) versus concrete paving (paving from concrete), know that there are many advantages of going with the latter.

What Are the Benefits of Resurfacing or Recapping?

Economical

Resurfacing your hardwood flooring is a great way to make it look new again. It’s economical, environmentally friendly and you can do it yourself! Not only does resurfacing give your floors a fresh new look but it also gives them increased durability and resistance to scratches and scuffs. When we resurface our floors we use an oil-based polyurethane that penetrates the wood fibers creating a durable barrier against water, spills and stains as well as providing protection from mold growth.

Improves Home Value

If you’re thinking about how to improve your home’s value, resurfacing or recapping may be the way to go. This process involves removing old paint from a surface and applying a new coat of paint. It can be done on an interior wall, exterior siding, roofing shingles or any other surface that needs painting. There are many benefits associated with this type of project including improving energy efficiency and reducing maintenance costs in the future. New asphalt can also increase home curb appeal.

Withstands Wear and Tear

The material that makes up your driveway is important. It can be the difference between a broken back and healthy, happy homeowners. Recapping or resurfacing your driveway before it gets too rough is an investment in yourself and your family’s future. If your driveway is already rough, you’ll want to consider having it resurfaced. This process involves removing old asphalt driveways and then adding a new layer of hot mix material over top in order to create an even surface for vehicles to drive on without damaging their tires or under-carriages.
