BorderLines offers multiple options for repairing your asphalt. No matter your budget or the degree of damage, we have a solution for you.
From a simple pothole repair to replacing an entire parking lot, BorderLines provides a wide range of commercial asphalt maintenance services in Minnesota and Western Wisconsin. We understand that your commercial parking lot is a huge investment, and we’re dedicated to providing comprehensive asphalt maintenance that protects its longevity and beauty.
This is a common and cost-effective repair ideal for parking lots with potholes, low spots, or minor deterioration and will last anywhere from 1-3 years. Our technicians will level off the surface, thoroughly clean the affected area, and apply a special primer known as asphalt tack coat. The primer acts as a glue that secures the new layer of asphalt to the existing layer. We then pour hot-mix asphalt, feather it into the voids and tamp the new asphalt to effectively compact the material.
Also referred to as a cutout or saw cut repair, our premium repair service addresses the structural issue at the foundation. Our technicians will saw cut the affected area with a diamond blade, remove the asphalt debris, and depending on the underlying structure, will either re-compact existing foundation or add Class-5 rock; insufficient base material is the primary cause of pavement failure. The material is then tamped with a plate compactor to ensure the foundation is structurally sound. Next, we apply a tack coat adhesive along the edges and pour our hot-mix asphalt into the voids. The new asphalt is raked and tamped to finalize the repair.
An infrared repair is a seamless repair that recycles the existing asphalt and requires little or no new material.
This method of repair uses radiated heat, much like a toaster, to bring the asphalt up to a working temperature of about 350 degrees. Once the asphalt has been heated, we rake out the bad aggregate, use an asphalt rejuvenator to replenish the oils lost from oxidation and then add some extra hot mix. To complete the repair, we re-compact the area for a seamless repair.
The infrared process is faster and quieter than most asphalt repair methods, and is less disruptive to customer operating hours.
Reclamation is typically used when the pavement is so severely damaged that temporary repairs no longer make financial sense.
During the reclamation process we grind down the existing asphalt to a depth of 10 - 12 inches. We use the ground asphalt as a new base material for the foundation, ensuring proper grade and slope, and compact it to a minimum base depth of 8 inches. After making sure the elevation is set for the new asphalt, we then pave over the new surface.
Much like infrared repairs, reclaiming asphalt is an eco-friendly form of asphalt repair because it recycles and reuses the existing material.
BorderLines Pavement Maintenance provides asphalt paving services for new construction or in situations where the existing pavement needs to be completely removed and reconstructed.
Ensuring a solid foundation is critical to any paving project. We begin by completely removing and hauling away any asphalt to the depth of the base rock. Next, we verify the solidity of the base and substrate, make any elevation corrections by adding or hauling away base rock, and then lay premium grade hot-mix asphalt. The asphalt is then compacted with a multi-ton vibratory roller.

We recommend that you fill the cracks and joints every year to keep moisture out from underneath your driveway. Cracks in your pavement allow water to penetrate the base beneath the surface which can result in more widespread cracking, sunken or broken-up asphalt, and eventually complete pavement failure.See More
