Chip Sealing

Chip seal or chip sealing is a pavement treatment that combines at least one layer of asphalt with a least one layer of aggregate. For homeowners and business owners it’s a popular method of providing a good surface for roads or driveways because it’s less expensive than resurfacing. Chip sealing extends your pavement’s life and it provides a good driving surface.

Chip seal uses the same materials as asphalt overlays, but the construction method is different. When using the chip seal process, a thin layer of hot liquid bitumen is sprayed on the existing road surface, then small aggregates (“chips”) are placed on top. These chips are then compacted for maximum adhesion to the asphalt, and excess chips are swept away from the surface.
