Below we’ve provided basic information about pavement construction. If you would like to know more about any aspects of the job, including asphalt crack repair, asphalt sealcoating and asphalt maintenance, we invite you to give us a call.

What is asphalt?

Asphalt is comprised of crushed rock, sand, gravel and asphalt cement, which is heated and placed in storage silos prior to application.

Why does asphalt fail?

There are a variety of reasons why asphalt might fail, including inadequate thickness, unstable sub-grade components and improper maintenance. If you have noticed cracks and deterioration on your asphalt surface it could because water has penetrated to the aggregate base. If this is the case, then there may be a chance that the surface is beyond repair, and new pavement construction is necessary.

How long will my parking lot last?

There are many factors that affect the lifespan of your new parking lot, such as weather conditions, the amount of traffic, amount of sunlight hitting the surface and the geographical location. With proper maintenance and a quality sealer, a parking lot can last for up to 15 years.

How long do I have to wait to use my parking lot?

After the asphalt has been installed, we recommend waiting at least 24 hours before using your parking lot to allow the seal coating to properly cure.

Can you pave in the rain?

For optimal results, we do not recommend paving in the rain. This is because asphalt will not be able to properly bond together with heavy moisture in the air.

Do you provide line striping?

After the completion of pavement construction, we can provide line striping services to make your parking lot safe for motorists and pedestrians. All lines are painted in yellow or white paint to provide adequate contrast and are completed to industry standards and regulations.
