It's Only Skin Deep
For low, depressed surfaces where the underlying foundation is structurally sound, skin patching is a viable and valuable option. We also recommend this solution for smaller areas where the asphalt is showing signs of deterioration such as raveling.

Before we repair your surface, Ace will perform any required maintenance to your concrete surfaces adjacent to your asphalt pavement. The repair area is then cleaned of debris. Next, we apply tack coat to the existing surface for proper adhesion with the new material.
New asphalt is then placed over the tack coat and compacted using a vibratory roller or vibra-tamping compactor. Because the skin patch is placed on top of existing pavement, the finished surface may be slightly higher. The edges are blended in, or "feathered", as much as possible before the area is swept again to remove any excess material.
+ Benefits (Click to expand)
- No More Low Spots: Our service corrects unwanted depressions that may exist in your pavement.
- Better Integration: We feather the edges to provide a seamless integration with your existing surface.
- Minimized Down Time: Skin patching minimizes the down time for your parking or traffic area.
- Cost-Effective: Our service provides you a less expensive alternative to removal and replacement (subgrade issues may be identified during a removal and replacement project which often carry high, unexpected costs to repair. A skin patch defers the cost of repairing subgrade issues that may be detected).
+ Available Materials & Options (Click to expand)
We use innovative asphalt mixes custom-designed to tolerate the harsh conditions of the Desert Southwest climate. We can also customize your repair project for a variety of traffic loads and conditions to provide you with optimal performance for an extended product lifespan. Standard options and materials include:
|1/2 Inch Mix Design: This mix is recommended for repairs on pavements with heavier traffic/loads for improved wear and resistance.|
|3/8 Inch Mix Design: This mix, which has smaller particles of aggregate than our 1/2 inch mix, is recommended for repairs on pavements with lighter traffic/loads or with heavy foot traffic for pleasing aesthetics.|
|SS1H: Used as a bonding agent between an existing pavement surface and newly applied asphalt to ensure the completed pavement structure works together to maximize surface strength and minimize delaminating.|
