Asphalt makes up 94 percent of the nearly 2.5 million miles of paved roads in the United States. It continues to be the most cost-effective pavement option for anything from residential driveways to government highways. The latest developments in pavement and resurfacing technology—including full depth reclamation, pavement preservation, soil modification, customized asphalt mixes, and precision equipment—ensure a smooth, safe, quiet, and durable surface that withstands the most rugged challenges of use.
Full depth reclamation (also known as full depth recycling) is one of the fastest-growing resurfacing and rehabilitation techniques specified by pavement engineers today. FDR reuses existing base and surface materials, resulting in lower costs and higher returns, while increasing the overall speed of construction. Considered a “green construction” approach, FDR increases the strength of the pavement structure and reduces reflective cracking.
Cold In-Place Recycling reuses the pavement already in place through asphalt pulverization and heatless repurposing, which produces a rehabilitated, bituminous final pavement. Existing pavement materials are reused for the pavement resurface, resulting in a distress-free, rejuvenated and structurally sound final product. CIR is considered a green construction approach, and has environmental advantages that include eliminating old asphalt disposal, lowering energy and raw material consumption, and reducing overall transportation costs.
Proper maintenance of existing asphalt surfaces is essential in the Midwest’s climate, where extreme temperatures, moisture and UV rays accelerate oxidation and start the deterioration process of your paved surfaces. At Dunn Company, we’ve been meeting these challenges since 1971, with an array of products, services and techniques designed to stand up to even the most demanding requirements.
Sealcoating involves applying a thin coal tar or asphalt emulsion-based surface treatment used to help preserve and improve the look and texture of existing asphalt surfaces. Typically applied on a regular basis (every three to five years, depending on traffic), sealcoating maximizes the life of paved surfaces.
Our experienced craftsmen can handle the entire process of a custom install—from hand-installation to long-term maintenance. The look of your asphalt sport surface can be specialized in many ways. This includes customized adjustments to the surface’s overall size, a variety of striping applications, and different color options for the finished surface.
Dunn Company‘s expertise in formulating a variety of asphalt mixes means we can approach your project with flexibility. Our on-site plant has the capacity to handle large and small jobs. Our quality control lab can produce cold mixes, emulsion mixes and hot mixes to the specifications you need. That means we can meet the unique needs of your project while offering you the latest and most efficient asphalt and pavement solutions possible.
Dunn Company has the unique skills, resources, and experience necessary to oversee your entire construction project—from start to finish.
With Dunn’s experience in the construction industry we have the knowledge and capability to handle the complex and detailed coordination of labor and materials necessary to successfully complete your project. We work as the owner’s representative, providing on-site construction management, site contractor coordination, administrative paperwork, and cost and quality controls to ensure your project is done on time and within your budget.
