Milling & Paving v. Paving Only

Have you ever wondered if there is a difference between milling and paving or choosing to pave only? Learn more about the unique process of milling and paving, below. You may decide that milling and paving is the better option. Check out the differences between milling and paving and paving only so that you can make the decision that is best for you!


The Difference Between Milling Before Paving and Only Paving 


The process of paving only involves using stone, concrete, or asphalt to cover a road or walkway. This is primarily a process that would occur to construct a new road or repair one with minimal damage or wear and tear.


Milling and paving involves special machinery to strip the top of the pavement. This material is then ground up and milled through the machinery. From there, the material can be reused to repave the roadway. 


Why Does The Milling Before Paving Process Matter


One advantage of milling and paving is that it allows you to get rid of bumps or uneven pavement on the road. Another benefit is that it can also be used to help repair the road from general wear and tear from the elements or provide maintenance to an older road that needs to be repaved. 

Additionally, milling and paving are excellent for the environment because it prevents the need for new pavement materials, like asphalt. In contrast, deciding to only pave a road is likely best for a stable road that only needs the asphalt to be renewed. Milling and paving allow someone to repair whole sections of pavement at a time.
