Chip Seal Pavement Project in Fort Worth TX

When it comes to Chip sealing in Fort Worth Texas, we are your solution!  Chip Sealing is a pavement surface treatment method where a layer of hot liquid asphalt is applied to a road surface, followed by a layer of aggregate chips. The chips are then rolled into the asphalt to create a textured and durable surface. This process provides an inexpensive way to extend the life of a roadway by sealing and protecting the surface from water, sunlight, and traffic wear. A community in the Fort Worth area soon found out how much chip-sealing can improve roads.

Recently, Elite Asphalt LLC completed a chip seal pavement project for a new subdivision in Fort Worth, TX. The customer was referred to Elite Asphalt by another construction contractor who’d worked on the homes. Chip sealing is commonly used on low-traffic roads, parking lots, and residential streets. It is a cost-effective alternative to traditional asphalt paving and is known for its durability and skid resistance. Therefore, it was a great solution for this paving project.

Chip sealing is a cost-effective, durable, and safe pavement surface treatment method that provides excellent skid resistance and can withstand heavy traffic and extreme weather conditions. It requires less material and labor, making it an affordable option for low-traffic roads, parking lots, and residential streets. Chip sealing is also a relatively quick process and roads can reopen to traffic within hours of application, minimizing traffic disruptions.

The experienced paving contractors from Elite Asphalt installed flex base and two layers of chip seal over the roadways in the subdivision, covering an area of 1,330 linear feet by 20 feet. The company prepped the site by grading and proof-rolling the existing gravel before rolling and setting limestone and pea gravel aggregates into the asphalt oil. Excessive aggregate was then swept away, leaving behind a durable road surface.

Road Base Stabilization and Chip Sealing in Justin TX

In Justin TX, Elite Asphalt is the trusted paving company, and we’re proud to help property owners with all their paving needs, whether that’s roadway paving or pavement repair. We’re here for homeowners, businesses, municipalities, and property management firms alike, and we’re trained and experienced enough to tackle any paving project.

Recently we tackled a road paving project for a community in Justin Texas that needed to improve their driver experience on their rural road. The existing road was starting to show serious wear and tear, and there were even potholes! Unfortunately, the Texas sun, coupled with thunderstorms and temperature changes over the years can do a number on pavement. Sunlight can break bonds within the asphalt binders, exposing aggregates. Water can then wash away aggregates, soak into the pavement, and freeze, widening cracks and causing potholes. This is why it’s so important to get timely pavement maintenance from a trusted local contractor like Elite Asphalt.

After getting the call about the Justin TX road, Elite Asphalt got out to the site quickly to look over the damage and determine the best course of pavement repair services to get it back to full function for the residents. We decided on chip sealing to create a durable road surface with traction, and the existing roadway base layer needed to be stabilized as well.

First, we pulverized the existing pavement and mixed it up with the base layer, then compacted and graded that with our advanced equipment to make a new stable base for the new roadway. Then we used a durable chip sealing process to create a new surface for the road that will resist weather and wear over time. Chip sealing is an economical choice for roadway paving, and the Justin TX customer was extremely happy with it. They also liked how professional and quick our crew was.
