Asphalt Core Drilling in Austin, San Antonio and Across the U.S.

Serving clients from Texas to Louisiana to Mississippi and across the nation!

Asphalt core drilling involves mechanically drilling into an asphalt road or highway, commonly used to access crucial utility controls such as water mains or pipe systems under the pavement. The process of asphalt core drilling may be necessary to accommodate other underground structures such as plumbing, sprinkler systems or manholes, as well as any additional construction specs that the project requires. Any transportation or commercial project involving asphalt can require asphalt core drilling, and the process requires a careful approach in order to maintain the existing asphalt and/or throughway as much as possible.

The Process of Asphalt Core Drilling

Some aspects of core drilling are universal regardless of whether the surface is concrete or asphalt. Whatever the project, the first step is to anchor the drill core to guarantee the most accurate and precise drilling specifications. After lining up the machinery exactly, the drill bit is mounted and prepared on the unique equipment; a diamond drill bit for asphalt core drilling can help to ensure the sharpest and most accurate core penetration possible. After initial penetration, we also engage a crank, and water is used to help cool the drill while it is in use. The core, drill core and bit can be completely removed once the core is drilled down to the required depth.
