Asphalt is the most popular choice of materials for pavements, and its durability is hard to match. The material is made of aggregates, which are crushed rocks, sand, gravel and other recycled materials, along with a binder that makes it capable of withstanding tremendous forces. Despite its durability, the longevity of the pavement also depends upon the expertise of the contractor that is responsible for its installation. As a property owner or manager in the Orlando area, including but not limited to Kissimmee, Melbourne and Leesburg, FL, knowing what to look for in an asphalt paving service helps you make the right decisions for your upcoming pavement project.
WHY IS ASPHALT THE GO-TO MATERIAL FOR PAVING PARKING LOTS AND ROADS?
The average asphalt road or parking lot’s useful life is 20 to 30 years, and some pavements have reached the 50-year mark. Asphalt is also viewed as the more economical option, with this material typically being less expensive than concrete.
The curing time for asphalt also beats out other materials. With concrete, you may need to wait as long as a week before you can use the surface. Asphalt is usually ready to allow driving on within about 24 hours. Between being faster, more affordable and stronger than other materials, the benefits of asphalt just can’t be beat.
WHAT ALL IS INVOLVED WITH NEW ASPHALT PAVING PROJECTS?
Far more goes into successful asphalt installation projects than simply spreading the material around. You’ve already taken the first step by doing your due diligence to find a reputable company. Our commitment to quality can’t be beat, and we’ve cultivated many years of successful projects to demonstrate our experience and expertise.
When we visit your property, our contractors evaluate the soil and terrain to identify any drainage issues that need correction before we put down the asphalt. We’ll then design the pavement from the bottom foundation all the way up to the top of the surface layer. During your initial visit, we’ll discuss other services that you may need, such as parking lot striping. As the final step, we’ll provide you with a timeline and begin the process of ordering the materials and prepping the equipment for the start of your project.
HOW DOES THE CONTRACTOR IMPACT THE SUCCESS OF NEW PAVEMENT INSTALLATION?
Asphalt paving is a hands-on job that also requires great thought and attention to detail. Behind every piece of paving equipment is a qualified technician that understands how their every move and decision impacts the success of the project. Communication is also important throughout each step of your paving project. From making sure you know what to expect on the day to working through the details upon the final inspection, you should feel confident trusting our team to leave you with the smoothest pavement you’ll find in the Orlando, FL area.
