Milling is the process of removing the damaged surface layer of a pavement, such as an asphalt parking lot, 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. A parking lot may need to be milled and paved if it has been determined that resurfacing is not the best long-term solution to a faulty surface layer, or may introduce problems new problems. For example- if a pavement is riddled with potholes, adding new asphalt to the surface of the parking lot will leave an uneven elevation that will give moisture opportunities to puddle and create new potholes in the exact same place. In a scenario like this, we would recommend milling & grinding before repaving.
A properly built asphalt parking lot by the right paving company 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 ever 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.
