Asphalt paving is critical to construction and infrastructure development. Whether it is a residential driveway or a commercial parking lot, a well-constructed and properly maintained asphalt surface can increase the lifespan of your property, enhance its aesthetic appeal, and prevent issues such as erosion and water damage.
New asphalt construction and paving are complex processes that involve several stages and require a combination of technical expertise and advanced equipment. If youâ€™re thinking of installing a new paved structure on your property, consider an overview of what these processes entail and call our team at A-1 Asphalt to discover what we can achieve for you.Â
Before the actual paving process, a thorough assessment of the site is conducted to determine the scope of work and any potential issues that might affect the project. The assessment includes a review of the soil quality, drainage, current pavement condition, and traffic flow in the area. Based on the assessment, the project manager develops a plan that outlines the best procedures to ensure a successful project outcome.
The preparation process involves clearing the site of any debris and unwanted materials, trimming the edges to create a clean and straight surface, and ensuring the proper grading of the land to maintain proper drainage.
The next stage in new asphalt construction is a mix design that determines the right combination of materials to ensure the desired characteristics of the asphalt pavement. The mix design generally includes a blend of aggregates, asphalt binder, and other additives (such as recycled materials) that provide strength, durability, and flexibility to the pavement.
Asphalt paving is the process of laying the asphalt pavement mix on a prepared surface. A paving machine spreads the asphalt mixture evenly while roller compactors compress the mixture. To achieve a smooth surface, the asphalt is also leveled and finished with a machine or using hand tools.
Once the asphalt surface is laid and leveled, it is allowed to cool and harden before it can be driven on. The time taken for the asphalt to harden varies depending on the weather, the thickness of the pavement, and the type of asphalt mix used.
