Asphalt Paving

Asphalt Paving Services South Florida

Compared to a concrete pavement of similar size, an asphalt pavement will be less expensive and faster to install. Any necessary repairs and preventive maintenance procedures will also be fast and economical.

Over the centuries, asphalt has been used for a wide variety of purposes. It has been used to line public reservoirs, caulk wooden ships, and prevent toxic materials from leaching into the soil or water table. In North America, asphalt is the most popular choice for paving parking lots, urban and suburban streets, running tracks, residential driveways, walking trails, bike paths, highways, and virtually every other type of pavement imaginable. When correctly installed and maintained, an asphalt pavement can have a long life with minimal problems.

What Are the Three Essentials for Asphalt Paving Installation?

There are numerous steps in a typical asphalt paving job that involve engineering, planning, scheduling, preparation, and execution. Three factors, however, are essential if the work is to be of superior quality.

1. Asphalt must be placed over a level, stable foundation. When a new pavement is being constructed, it is necessary to ensure that the foundation on which the pavement will rest is suitable. This may involve amending the soil, compacting it, or installing a gravel or rock subbase. When paving is needed to perform a repair, the typical procedure is to remove the damaged pavement so that the foundation can be repaired or strengthened.

2. Asphalt must be compacted thoroughly to remove air voids so that the material is made stronger and denser. Improperly compacted asphalt will have a much shorter life, and it will require costlier and more frequent repairs.

3. Asphalt must be applied before it has a chance to cool excessively. If the temperature of the asphalt is not hot enough, adequate compaction may be impossible, and the appearance of the pavement may be lumpy or otherwise unattractive. This means that contractors must ensure that asphalt deliveries are timed just right, and they must have sufficient staff and equipment at the site to perform the work efficiently.

Are All Asphalt Paving Projects Large in Scope?

Many people associate asphalt paving with the construction of a parking lot or highway. However, asphalt paving is a successful technique for making certain repairs to an existing pavement. For example, asphalt paving can be used to repair potholes, areas of alligator cracking, or certain pavement distresses. Relatively small asphalt paving projects include golf cart paths, tennis courts, suburban driveways, pedestrian walkways between buildings, additional parking spaces beside a residence, and speed bumps.

What Are the Advantages of Asphalt Paving?

Asphalt pavements represent a lower initial investment than a comparable concrete pavement, and preventive maintenance and repair procedures are also economical. Installation and repairs are also fast, which means the area can begin accepting traffic sooner, minimizing the disruption to traffic, your business operations, or your tenants. Asphalt pavements are aesthetically pleasing, featuring a luxurious, smooth finish. Furthermore, a well-constructed asphalt pavement with a high-quality sealcoating offers better traction, making it safer for those walking or driving on it.

Benefits of Asphalt Paving

Durable

Asphalt is weather resistant and different thicknesses of the material can be applied depending on whether it will be used by pedestrians or vehicles. It can also be repaired easily and cost-effectively when damage does occur.

Safe

Properly installed asphalt is graded to ensure proper drainage and it offers enough traction to prevent users from slipping.

Environmentally Friendly

Asphalt is highly-recyclable and it can be used over and over again. In fact, it is the most widely recycled material in the US.

Minimal Disruption

Asphalt paving can be driven on the day it is installed, which minimizes disruption to the users.

Professional

A fresh layer of asphalt looks attractive and professional, and it retains this look over time with proper maintenance.
