Asphalt was used as a road building and surfacing material in Babylon as early as 625 BC. In fact, “an inscription on a brick records the paving of Procession Street in Babylon, which led from [the king’s] palace to the north wall of the city, ‘with asphalt and burned brick.’”


If your parking lot is cracked or damaged, it can not only look bad, but can also be potentially dangerous. Fortunately, this can either be repaired or repaved, and a paving expert can help make it look and work as good as new.


Even though you won't see it after the driveway's completed, one of the most important parts of a paved driveway is the base. This thick layer of aggregate stone takes all of the weight, and can be 6 to 8 inches thick.


If you have carved out a golf course and incorporated environmentally sensitive areas into the design, paved golf paths can help protect these areas from damages. When golfers know that they must keep their carts on paths, they will not inadvertently drive into fragile areas.


When we talk about the base for asphalt paving, we're talking about the crushed stone put down first before the asphalt mix is poured on top. This base absorbs the weight and is the load-bearing material. Residential applications need about 3-4 inches, but commercial applications take anywhere between 10 and 18 inches.


Like most projects, the strength of your driveway depends on the foundation. This starts with the sub-grade, which has to be made smooth, firm, and contoured correctly. A paving expert will make sure this crucial part is flawless, so you can count on your driveway.


The labor-intensive road building and asphalt paving industry didn’t become mechanized until the early 1900s. Portland cement mixers were modified to mix asphalt in 1910, and by 1920, mechanical cement spreaders were being adapted to spread asphalt.


In 1595, on his third voyage to Trinidad, Sir Walter Raleigh discovered a massive asphalt lake. The asphalt from Lake Trinidad would later be used to pave a number of roads in the U.S., including Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington D.C.


One of the first major roadway systems was built by John Metcalfe in 1717. Even though he was blind, Metcalfe built around 180 miles of roads throughout Yorkshire, England, using a three layer construction process: large stones, excavated road material, and a layer of gravel.


It’s important to keep in mind that a parking lot surface is only going to be as strong as the base beneath it. Whether your parking lot is being built from scratch or replaced, the base should first be stabilized and bolstered to ensure a longer-lasting paving surface.


Paving asphalt is technically called asphalt concrete. This is because concrete refers to any material that is made of aggregate bonded with a binder. What we normally call concrete is a cement concrete specifically made with Portland cement as binder, instead of asphalt.


In areas where permeable subgrade material exists, porous asphalt parking lot pavement is a good option. This type of material will reduce storm water runoff, thereby minimizing or even eliminating the need for detention basins.


Residential paving contractors meet with homeowners to provide estimates for home projects like driveways, patios, new walkways, or concrete floors. Together the contractor and homeowner choose the best type of materials and location for the prospective project.


There are general recommended parking requirement for commercial parking lots, depending on the nature of your establishment. For instance, for a restaurant, theater, or stadium, it’s recommended that there be 0.3 spaces per seat.


Sealing your driveway is similar to putting a wax coating on your car every so often. Essentially, this maintenance step protects the surface from the elements, adds elasticity, restores color, and smoothens the surface by filling in all the pores and cracks.


When it comes to the paving of parking lots, the asphalt surface should not vary from the established grade by more than a quarter inch in 10 feet when measured in any direction. Any irregularities need to be corrected during asphalt installation.


Did you know that infrared driveway repair methods result in a water resistant, seamless new surface for your damaged driveway? Here, intense infrared wavelengths pe*****te the surface of the existing asphalt and heat it to a depth necessary to scarify and repair the damaged area. Then fresh asphalt is added to complete the repair.


So how are transverse surface cracks in road pavement formed? These cracks generally experience horizontal and/or vertical movement due to the expansion and contraction of the pavement that is caused by the temperature cycling of the pavement as well as freeze/thaw effects.


The cart path on a golf course is a continuous path that connects all eighteen tees with their greens by following the side of the fairway. For busy golf courses, this is essential for keeping the flow of play moving at a faster pace.


Asphalt is not soluble or harmful in a water environment. It has been used successfully for many years in fish hatcheries, reservoirs or drinking water for human consumption, and other environmental protection applications.


Airports usually refer to the large paved areas for runways and taxiing as "tarmac." These are actually paved with similar asphalt to the paving on your driveway, but are still called tarmac after the brand name Tarmac from the early 1900s.


We understand that the overall quality of your paving work is just as important as its appearance. If we have any suggestions for changes that make your finished product more durable, we’ll be sure to let you know.


The bottom line is, the durability and life span of your driveway is going to depend primarily on how it was installed. Properly installed asphalt and good quality products will ensure that your paved surface lasts for decades to come.


While it may be a common practice to let people park on the grass surrounding your new retail building, this isn’t always a good long-term strategy. Ultimately, installing a paved parking area will provide a better impression of your business and improve safety.


For asphalt pavement surface treatments, dense graded hot mix overlays are used to improve the functional (meaning non-structural) condition of the pavement. This overlay is usually applied in thicknesses less than 2 inches.


Asphalt is used to pave cattle feed lots, poultry house floors, barn floors, and greenhouse floors. It is also used to line surfaces in fish hatcheries and industrial retention ponds, lay railbeds for transit systems, and create sea walls, dikes, and groins to control beach erosion.


The asphalt used in your parking lot is a product of crude oil, but that doesn't mean it's bad for the environment. Crude oil goes through fractal distillation to create various products like gasoline and jet fuel. Asphalt is a byproduct that would otherwise go to landfills.


Clean and seal asphalt maintenance is used on all types of cracks found in roads. This system involves blowing out crack debris by using a hot-air lance or compressed air. The space is then filled in with a sealant.


Gravel and dirt paths have a habit of spreading beyond the edges of the golf cart path as the grass next to the path becomes muddy and stony. When your golf cart path is paved, it has clean edges that make it easy to keep a clean line of grass next to the path.


The outside of your house is the first impression visitors get, and that includes your driveway. That's why driveway paving gives you a great deal of options to make sure that your driveway has a compatible style to your house.


Looking to make sure your parking lot or private road lasts a long time? A great place is to start with making sure it's made correctly to be as smooth as possible. A smoother pavement can lead to a longer pavement life, up to 10% to 25% longer.


The bottom line is, periodic maintenance of your newly paved driveway will help extend its life. Sealcoating protects and restores the asphalt, while crack filling and pothole repair help to maintain the overall integrity of the structure.


Unfortunately, letting golfers drive their golf carts all over your perfectly manicured course can take its toll on the appearance of the grass over time. If you don’t already have paved golf cart paths on the course, we’re always here to help you create them.


Most of the asphalt that is used in paving is hot-mix asphalt, which is poured at a certain temperature. When a paving expert is paving your driveway, he or she makes sure it's not too hot or too cold to ensure you have a smooth, even surface.


Did you know that concrete’s light color means that there’s less heat absorption overall? Thus, when used in a parking lot structure, concrete has the potential to lower ambient air temperatures by anywhere from 7 to 10 degrees.


While the asphalt on your street may look solid, it's actually an extremely viscous fluid. In fact, the longest running experiment in the world is the Queensland Pitch Drop experiment, which proves it's a liquid. Since 1927, only 8 drops of pitch have fallen.


There are different formulations of asphalt available for a variety of different paving applications. For example, a parking lot will have different requirements to a loading dock, and a paving expert will make sure the right kind is used.


While many homeowners take great pride in the new coat of paint on their home’s exterior or the condition of their lawn, your driveway also impacts your home’s appearance. If you’re having issues with cracks or crumbling, we may be able to help you restore its appearance.


A properly installed asphalt driveway can last 15 to 20 years if it is properly maintained. However, factors such as weather conditions, extra-heavy loads and shortcuts taken during construction can all cause premature wear and tear that can necessitate replacement or repair.


While regular sealing of your driveway will go a long way to protecting your investment, too much sealant can actually damage the surface. Speak to us about the best sealant schedule to meet your needs.
