Resurfacing is scraping off the top layer of your Running Track Resurfacing and reapplying it. It can be done if the black asphalt/concrete base is showing through or if you have areas where the surface is separated from the underlying track. This is called delamination and requires a more thorough inspection to determine how much needs to be removed and if the underlying asphalt is still intact.
The Ultimate Guide to Running Track Resurfacing
Bumps and cracks in the running track surface can cause injuries for your athletes so it is important to maintain a regular maintenance program that includes sweeping, debris removal, and repairing minor issues before they worsen. However, there comes a point where the track needs to be completely reconstructed.
Complete Reconstruction is removing and replacing the rubber track surface as well as the asphalt/concrete base and aggregate/stone sub base underneath. This is a major project and can be costly depending on the size of your track, the underlying problems that need to be addressed and the type of resilient surface you choose. Reconstruction can fix a wide variety of problems including poor drainage, wavy track ovals and severe surface cracking. In most cases it is best to have a professional running track contractor perform this level of work.
