An asphalt overlay is the process of installing a new layer of asphalt over an existing asphalt pavement surface. A liquid emulsion is sprayed onto the surface prior to installing the new layer of asphalt. New asphalt and blacktop installations are ideal when the asphalt surface has become heavily cracked but the base of the asphalt pavement remains stable. The new layer of asphalt is installed after appropriate asphalt repairs have been made to the old pavement such as crack filling and skin patching.

Care must be taken to ensure the grade of the overlay permits drainage so as to prevent water from being trapped on the new asphalt surface. All manholes, valves and other ground fixtures are raised to the new grade. Where necessary, grinding of the existing asphalt surface and removal of tree roots is done to ensure proper grade.
