Extending Bridge Service Life
At Penhall Company, we specialize in bridge overlays that extend the functional life of bridge decks of all sizes and lengths — from under 100 feet to multiple miles and lanes. Whether rehabilitating a bridge deck that’s seen years of wear and tear, or adding a new surface to a new deck, we’ll help you select the right overlay for the job, and apply it with expert precision for improved ride-ability and a longer service life.
Overlays For Any Job
With the industry’s deepest and broadest experience in a wide array of overlay types and processes, we’ll help you identify the most effective overlay fix for your particular bridge deck and traffic requirements. Our expertise includes:
- Modified concrete overlays
- Polyester overlays
- Polymer overlays
- Fly ash overlays
- Microsilica overlays
- Latex overlays
Prepared To Perform
As part of our meticulous bridge deck preparation, prior to overlay we check for and identify any delaminated or failed concrete on the bridge surface. Then we scarify the surface of the structure, using shotblasting, roto-milling, chipping, and/or hdyro-demolition techniques that work best for your particular bridge surface. If it’s an asphalt overlay, we’ll also apply a waterproof membrane. By starting with a clean surface, we make sure the overlay bonds and performs properly.
We select and apply bridge deck overlays engineered to create an impermeable surface that resists attack from the elements. Ensuring a longer bridge life.
