Trench Repair

Responding When You Need Us

When utility lines below an existing pavement surface need to be fixed or installed, many times the urgency is now - or at least it seems that way. We understand your need for timeliness, so our crews are ready to assist you when you need them. Whether saw cutting and removing the pavement surface, or repairing utility cuts in asphalt pavement after work is completed, we work closely with municipalities to ensure we meet or exceed soil compaction and density specifications for the subgrade so that you can be confident when the inspector shows up.


When pre-trench work is required, we will saw cut the repair area and remove the asphalt material to prepare for the utility work to be done. Once completed, we will come back to your site and inspect the subgrade to ensure no damage has been caused by moisture or traffic. If needed, base material such as ABC or GSA will be added and compacted to help support the new surface. We utilize several different types of subgrade compaction methods including vibra-tamping, jumping jack compaction and wheel rolling.

Prior to paving, we will apply tack coat to the saw-cut edges for proper adhesion between the existing asphalt and the new material. We then patch back the area with new asphalt up to a three-inch depth at a time and compact using a vibratory roller. The area is finished by sweeping to remove any debris from the process.

We're now ready for any additional maintenance that your overall surface may require such as crack filling, seal coating, slurry sealing or re-striping.

  • Stronger Foundation:

    We have the opportunity to examine and repair any subgrade issues that may exist.

  • Timely:

    Our response times are some of the best in the business. In many cases, we can provide same or next day service.

  • Better Integration:

    Saw-cut versus jack-hammered edges result in seamless integration with your existing surface.

  • Enhanced Safety:

    Your new surface will increase the safety of pedestrians by reducing tripping hazards.

3Available Materials & Options

We use innovative asphalt mixes custom-designed to tolerate the harsh conditions of the Desert Southwest climate. We can also customize your repair project for a variety of traffic loads and conditions to provide you with optimal performance for an extended product lifespan. Standard options and materials include:

  • 1/2 Inch Mix Design:

    This mix is recommended for repairs on pavements with heavier traffic/loads for improved wear and resistance.

  • 3/8 Inch Mix Design:

    This mix, which has smaller particles of aggregate than our 1/2 inch mix, is recommended for repairs on pavements with lighter traffic/loads or with heavy foot traffic for pleasing aesthetics.

  • SS1H:

    Used as a bonding agent between an existing pavement surface and newly applied asphalt to ensure the completed pavement structure works together to maximize surface strength and minimize delaminating.

  • Aggregate Base Course:

    Serving as the supporting foundation for the top surface layers, this material may be made of newly quarried rock or recycled asphalt concrete.
