Our blog this month is about paving for driveways, parking lots, and roads. talks about the different types of pavement used today. Here is a general overview of the steps involved in paving these surfaces:

Planning and Design: The first step is to assess the area and develop a plan, including the layout, dimensions, grading, and drainage.

Site Preparation: Before paving can begin, you must prep the area. Preparing involves clearing vegetation, removing existing pavement or debris, and grading the surface to ensure proper water drainage.

Base Installation: A stable and well-compacted base is crucial for the longevity and performance of the paved surface. The base involves adding layers of crushed stone or aggregate material. Our contractors then compact each layer with specialized equipment to create a solid foundation.

Edge Restraints: We install edge restraints to prevent the paved surface from shifting or cracking at the edges. These restraints include concrete, plastic, or metal placed along the perimeter of the pavement.

Binder Course: The binder course typically consists of asphalt and provides further stability and strength to the pavement. Our contractors apply it in a thickness determined by the project’s specific requirements.

Surface Course: The surface course is the topmost layer and is responsible for providing a smooth and aesthetically pleasing finish. It consists of a finer asphalt mix that offers improved resistance to wear and tear from traffic. The thickness of the surface course can vary depending on the type of road or parking lot.

Compaction: After applying each asphalt layer, we compact the surface using rollers to ensure proper density and stability. Compaction removes air voids and increases the strength and longevity of the pavement.

Finishing Touches: Once we complete the paving, our contractors take additional steps to enhance the appearance and functionality of the surface. Finishing touches include line striping and installing curb, gutters, and signage.
