Full & Partial Patching
Removing of selected areas chosen by the contracting authority; by means of cutting the full depth of the pavement; removal either by breaking and digging with an excavator or backhoe, or by utilizing a lift out method (lifting an entire slab). Replacing/adding steel as needed/desired by authority and replacing with new concrete and finishing flush with existing concrete.
Typically removing 3 to 5 inches off the top of the road by milling or other means at locations chosen by the contracting authority; sandblasiting the removed area clean and replacing it with new concrete finished flush with the existing concrete. The new concrete is typically bonded to existing concrete by a grout place immediately prior to concrete placement.
Removing the old road bed or subbase (area underneath the pavement, the roadway, or bridge approach), to a depth desired by the contracting authority or a depth of sound and suitable material, then typically replacing it with a granular material back to the desired elevation. Typically done before a full depth repair, or paving operation.
Sawing each joint in a roadway or parking lot etc.; to a desired depth; cleaning the joint with a power washer or sandblasting, and compressed air; then filling the joint with a suitable material.
Dowel Bar Retrofit
The addition of steel to a road that was paved without it. Typically done by sawing six 2 ó inch “slots” (like in the picture) on an already existing joint or crack in the roadway; jackhammering the area sawed to remove the old concrete to allow space for a new dowel bar inside the “slot”, elevating it off the bottom with a plastic chair, and then filling the slot with a grout to create a load transfer point at the existing joint.
