Commercial Asphalt Paving
The story of asphalt begins many years before the United States was founded, our nation’s infrastructure depends on the presence of asphalt. Did you know that 93% of the country’s two million miles of roads are asphalt with more miles being added daily.
Blacktop is a mixture of sand, limestone and asphalt, our state-of-the-art power paver installs the blacktop and is then compacted by large commercial and small vibratory rollers and edges are tamped at a 45-degree angle as needed for added strength and durability.
Our company is equipped to do both commercial parking lots, roadways, private lanes, and residential driveway paving. We are large enough to serve you and small enough to appreciate you.
Resurface and Repairs
Most driveways and parking lot surfaces being overlaid need some repairs before the new layer of asphalt is installed. Not all problem areas need the same repairs, older surfaces usually need more attention. Repairs are not always for cosmetics, potholes pose a trip & fall hazard which can result in an injury, potholes are ugly, but not as ugly as a lawsuit.
Depending on the condition and severity a total rip out down to base with the replacement of base rock may be required. Be sure to address a problem sooner than later because letting a simple crack go unattended can lead to a very big and costly repair.
An overlay can extend the lifespan of a surface by several years. Instead of completely redoing an entire area, we can add new pavement on top. An asphalt overlay is another form of asphalt maintenance before the surface is too far gone and needs to be totally ripped out and replaced. A liquid asphalt tack coat is applied to the old surface to bond the asphalt layers together and help waterproof the original blacktop surface. Not all paving contractors believe in being this thorough.
How Long Will Asphalt Last
Asphalt's useful lifespan varies, depending on multiple conditions. Nevertheless, in general, an asphalt overlay can last between 8 and 15 years. To help your asphalt driveway or parking lot overlay last as long as possible, you will want to invest in routine maintenance.
