When is Slurry Surfacing Used?

The performance of a slurry seal or micro-surfacing will vary depending, in large part, on the existing pavement condition.  Slurry surfacings should be used when worn pavements are beginning to ravel, or are experiencing some measure of cracking.  Slurry surfacings are also appropriate where water is starting to penetrate the gravel base beneath the pavement surface.  On the other hand, slurry surfacings should not be used where the base has failed or does not exist.

Timing is the critical element.  Maintaining the right road, at the right time, with the right method will extend the life of any pavement system in the most cost-effective manner.  Slurry surfacing, with or without preparatory work, may be the most cost effective option for some pavement conditions.  For other pavement conditions, slurry surfacing may not be a cost effective alternative.  Implementing a successful preventive maintenance program requires a well-planned process and ongoing commitment.
