Parking Lot Milling & Paving

An asphalt or concrete parking lot may need to be milled and paved if it has been determined that a resurfacing is not the best long-term solution to a faulty surface layer, or may introduce problems that would be expensive to address. Milling is the process of removing the surface layer of a pavement using equipment like our milling machine or a cold planer. Once the surface layer is removed, the new surface layer of concrete or asphalt is paved. Milled pavement may be re-applied as a new parking lot over the existing base layer as long as the base layer is intact. Millings can otherwise be used as the sub-base for another parking lot.

The asphalt in a parking lot built by paving companies in Cleveland will generally last between 15-30 years with the proper maintenance procedures in place, but without proper maintenance, the parking lot as a whole will need to be addressed within 5-7 years. In Cleveland, Ohio, the increase in lake-effect snow and ice may keep you from every reaching the higher end of that range, even with diligent maintenance and periodic repair.

A parking lot with numerous cracks and potholes will likely be recommended for a mill & pave, also called a grinding & milling job. Concrete surfaces and pavements can also be milled and paved.

It is important to note that while these prices are accurate characterizations of the costs of milling & paving, there are additional variable costs which are assessed in a case-by-case basis. Therefore, determining the price of a milling & paving project is not as simple as calculating the square footage of your parking lot and multiplying with the associated figure listed above. Varying costs include:

  • The distance of the job site from our crew.
  • The depth of the milling & paving procedure.
  • The amount of time/effort is necessary for cleaning. An asphalt or concrete pavement must be free of vegetation, dirt and debris before our team can affect the surface.
