What is Micro-surfacing?
Micro-surfacing is a protective seal coat which extends the life of pavement. It is a thin, tough layer of asphalt emulsion blended with finely crushed stone for traction. This method will renew the road surface and seal minor cracks and other irregularities. This process protects the pavement from moisture penetration and oxidation. Similar to painting a house, micro-surfacing creates a protective layer which preserves the underlying structure and prevents the need for more expensive repairs in the future.
