PAVING AND REPAIRS
Our professionals can engineer and install your parking lot or driveway to your liking. The typical process involves excavating the existing surface and grading for proper drainage. We then install stabilization fabric to ensure your base aggregate isn't contaminated and proper gradation is maintained. After the foundation has been established, a lift of binder asphalt is placed, the thickness is determined by the use of the pavement. Typical Binder thickness is 2.5-3 inches. Finally, a lift of finish top coat is applied at a thickness of 1.5-2 inches.
As the name implies, an overlay/resurface is a new layer of hot mix asphalt, generally 1.5 to 2 inches thick that is placed over existing pavement. There are 2 reasons a resurface may be used; it can be used as a "fix" for deteriorating asphalt or the finish coat for an existing binder. When a top coat is put on at the right time in the asphalt cycle, it can extend the life of the asphalt for up to 20 years.
