Full-Depth Reclamation

Atlanta’s premier choice for Full-Depth Reclamation.

Transform Old Asphalt into New with Ace Paving’s Full-Depth Reclamation

When your asphalt shows signs of damage that go beyond regular wear and tear, it may have structural damage that can’t be patched or paved over. When your asphalt is damaged beyond repair, it may be time to consider a full-depth reclamation (FDR). 

FDR pulverizes all existing asphalt layers and reclaims them to create a uniform base layer, capable of supporting a new, thinner surface layer of asphalt. 

Unlike milling and resurfacing, this method removes, mills, and repaves all layers of the existing asphalt, providing a robust foundation for your pavement to endure for years to come. And unlike traditional removal and replacement, full-depth reclamation reuses your existing milled pavement, saving you time, money, and materials, making this a better option for pavement that has lost its healthy sub-base.

Benefits of Full-Depth Reclamation

Compared to basic maintenance and repair services, full-Depth Reclamation brings a variety of added advantages including:

  • Cost-effectiveness: full-depth reclamation is often less expensive than traditional removal and replacement methods
  • Sustainability: the reclamation process recycles existing pavement materials, reducing the need for new resources
  • Time Savings: the project timeline for a full-depth reclamation project is much faster than traditional re-paving methods
  • Foundational Improvements:reclamation can revive asphalt with deep sub-grade and foundation issues without having to move all existing asphalt and start from scratch
  • Mitigating failures: Address all types of severe asphalt failures, including ruts, potholes, cracking, and slope problems using asphalt reclamation

When to Opt for Full-Depth Reclamation

We recommend this option if your asphalt:

  • Severe Structural Damage: If the pavement has extensive structural damage that affects the base layers, such as deep cracks, potholes, or rutting, FDR may be necessary. These issues often indicate underlying instability that a simple overlay or patch can't fix.
  • Repeated Repair Failure: When surface distresses like cracking or potholes keep recurring even after repeated repairs, it's usually a sign that the problem is deeper than the surface. FDR addresses these issues by reconstructing the pavement from the ground up.
  • Long-Term Cost-Effectiveness: While asphalt overlays and repairs might seem less expensive in the short run, they can become costly if the pavement requires frequent maintenance. FDR is often more cost-effective for severely deteriorated pavements as it offers a long-term solution.
