What is asphalt milling?

Asphalt milling is a simple, environmentally conscious process where layers of damaged asphalt are removed and recycled.

Using our asphalt milling machine, we grind layers of asphalt from a shallow depth to a full depth (typically the top 1.25 – 1.5 inches asphalt), depending on the amount of surface damage. The pieces of aggregate (millings) are then recycled to be used for asphalt resurfacing.

We provide precise asphalt milling services performed by professional, dependable and safe crews.

We offer a variety of milling services based on your needs, including full-depth milling, profiling, “mill and fill,” clean-up and hauling.

What are the benefits of asphalt milling?

Environmentally Friendly

Milled asphalt is 100% recyclable! Milling generates reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) which can be used in future projects.

Restores Drainage

Milling is very effective for drainage correction.

Minimum Traffic Interruption

After milling, the resulting textured pavement can be used immediately as a driving surface, allowing minimal traffic interruption during construction so your business or project can stay operational.


Because milling means you don't have to dig up your entire roadway or parking lot, it's a more economical way to improve your asphalt.

Improve Asphalt Appearance & Remove Damage

Milling can give your parking lot or roadway a fresh new look with minimal environmental impact. It can level out your paving surface and remove damaged surface layers.

FAQs About Milling

What is “mill and fill”?

Mill and fill, also known as mill and overlay, is a process that involves grinding off the top layer of asphalt (mill) using a cold planing machine, and replacing it with a new coat of asphalt (fill/overlay).

What is the difference between cold planing and milling?

Milling and cold planing are the same thing. The terminology changes based on region.

What is profile milling?

If your roadway or parking lot has a curb and gutter, profile milling will allow you to grind a strip along the curb and gutter, so that your asphalt is flush.
