Protect your pavement without removing the existing asphalt

Stripping and repaving a cracked road is an expensive and time-consuming project, but there may be an alternative solution that can help save you a lot of time and money. By installing a fabric asphalt overlay directly over the existing road base, you can eliminate the need for stripping while adding an extra layer of water protection and flexibility to help strengthen your new asphalt. At Cactus Asphalt, our experts utilize almost 40 years of experience in the asphalt industry to perfect their fabric asphalt overlay installation services. We have the knowledge and skills to do the job right the first time, using only the best asphalt overlay geotextile products on the market. Increasing the performance and lifespan of your road is what we do best, so you can trust Cactus Asphalt for the most reliable and economical asphalt overlay services in Phoenix.

What is Asphalt Fabric Overlay?

When pavement starts to take on the appearance of alligator skin, you know that there is a problem. However, that does not mean that the entire road needs to be replaced. If the road base is still in good shape, an asphalt fabric overlay could be just what you need. A fabric overlay, or paving fabric, is a geotextile material that is composed of polypropylene fibers or polyester fibers and a liquid asphalt tack coat. Cactus Asphalt uses a unique, proven fabric called Petromat to seal cracks and create waterproof skin for your pavement. During the paving process, the fabric is applied directly over the cracked or worn pavement. Then, an asphalt overlay is placed on top of the paving fabric to complete the project. Our overlay not only fixes the current problems you have today but can slow down any problems developing down the road.

Protect asphalt from water

Water saturation is the number one cause of pavement deterioration. In fact, pavement that is saturated for just 10% of the time will see a 50% decrease in its lifespan. At Cactus Asphalt, we want to help you increase the strength and durability of your road, which is why we offer high-performance fabric asphalt overlays to help protect your asphalt from water damage.
