I am looking for methods for repairing damaged edging on Chip Seal roads. (Caused by trash trucks, mail delivery, aging, etc). Our chip ranges from 1/2" to 1 1/4" thick and the sides are "beat out" sometimes into the drive lane. We have a limited budget. We tried cold/hot mix but it is labor intensive for our small crew and takes us off other projects. Any suggestions on methods, materials, equipment, or processes would be helpful.


The problem with Chip Seal is that it is not a structure like asphalt pavement so any road that has only Chip Seal over gravel AND if there is any type of shoulder that extends past the Chip Seal, entities will always have trouble with edges of Chip Seal.
