Asphalt paving is the process of re-purposing or installing new layers of pavement in the form of concrete or asphalt. This is done in order to provide a surface for driving and parking.
In today’s day and age, it is important to make sure the lot your business resides on has pavement that is free of cracks, uneven bumps, and does not appear dark, smooth, and compact.
The difficulty with asphalt paving comes from ensuring the proper steps are taken. Therefore, it is vital to make sure that the layers are laid properly and provide the required support and endurance. Asphalt paving is really beneficial, since it makes your business approachable for customers and collaborators to visit.
The manner in which the pavement is replaced depends on the condition that it is currently in. There are a couple different methods that include the saw-cutting or completely excavating the site. This is done to make sure that the foundation layer is properly level and compacted before the new materials are placed on top of it. This is a critical step that guarantees that the pavement sits properly and will last for years to come.
Once the foundation is solidified and is properly compacted, DOT approved limerock is installed. This limerock functions as the new base foundation that is graded to form the proper base for the new asphalt. Once the limerock is prepped for paving, a layer of DOT approved tack coat is applied to the surface which ensures asphalt adhesion and a level surface. After that, a hot asphalt mix is loaded into the asphalt paving machine and laid down by the asphalt paving crew. This creates an even layer that is slightly thicker than the desired depth, so that the pavement has increased strength and is smooth to drive on. The asphalt paving process is completed when the top layer is compacted with a vibratory roller to the proper thickness, and flattened with a rubber tire roller that creates a smooth and even surface.
As a business owner, it is important to understand how this process is properly done to guarantee that the project is done to standards, and has the durability to last on your site for a long time.
If any of the above-mentioned steps are not done correctly and the base layer is uneven when the new pavement is laid, cracks will begin to form quickly. Moreover, the surface will not appear clean, and it will not feel smooth.
Do not rely on construction teams that do not walk you through the process. If you notice any of these steps are missing, understand that the pavement will not appear clean nor be durable.
