Asphalt Pavement

Asphalt pavement is utilized in a variety of different applications because of its durability, cost-effectiveness, simplicity of construction, and strength.  It is the material of choice for parking lots across the nation because asphalt withstands heavier loads and, when combined with proper asphalt maintenance, lasts for many years. In order to maximize the life of your asphalt parking lot, it is important to develop a pavement management plan involving routine inspections and ongoing preventative maintenance.

Asphalt Repair & Patching

Patching is a common asphalt repair on areas of pavement with potholes.  Potholes occur when water seeps into pavement through unsealed or improperly sealed cracks.

Asphalt Repair Procedure

This process consists of filling the affected areas with hot asphalt mix.

Asphalt Removal & Replacement

As asphalt pavement progresses through its performance lifecycle, its appearance diminishes over time. Fine hairline cracks spread and deepen within the asphalt. Without ongoing maintenance, water may enter through cracks and holes may form, undermining the base.  In this case, the most effective form of repair is to remove and replace the deteriorated area.  

Cost

The cost for asphalt removal & replacement depends upon the geographic location, the amount of grading and subgrade work required, and other site-specific factors.

Asphalt Resurfacing

In more severe cases of asphalt failure, a long-term and cost-effective solution is to resurface the asphalt pavement (also referred to as overlay).  If you notice grade depressions (standing water on the pavement) and/or large sections of alligatored areas (interconnecting cracks forming a series of blocks resembling an alligator's skin), it is a good idea to have your pavement resurfaced.

Asphalt Resurfacing Procedure

This process consists of several steps including preparing and cleaning the area prior to performing work, leveling asphalt of low areas, grinding of all transitions, adjusting of all drainage structures, and many other steps unique to each site. 

Asphalt Maintenance Facts

As soon as freshly laid hot asphalt pavement mix begins to cool, the aging process begins. When oxygen in the air and water combine with asphaltic binder of the pavement, a chemical change takes place. At first, this process is necessary for the pavement to become hard and firm. Later, if this process is not arrested, a complete deterioration of the asphaltic binder will take place and reduce the pavement to a layer of loose stone. Enemies of a parking lot or Driveway include: gas, oil, sun oxidation, salt, water penetration, and hot or cold weather. Sealcoating asphalt pavement with a coal tar or asphalt-based emulsion slows pavement deterioration by protecting against the enemies of a parking lot. However, for maximum benefit, sealcoat needs to be applied approximately 12 months after the initial application and then on a regular basis, about every 24 to 48 months, thereafter.
