Compared to the most common paving alternatives like poured concrete, stamped concrete or interlocking pavers, asphalt paving is by far the most popular way to pave roads, highways, driveways, and parking lots. Asphalt is low maintenance and durable. Asphalt is the preferred paving material as it lasts longer and is competitively priced to install and maintain.

Installing a New Asphalt Layer
The Final Roll
1. Surface Assessment
The existing layer of asphalt is assessed to know whether it qualifies for an overlay. Not all surfaces qualify for overlay including:
- Surfaces with extensive damage such as ruts, huge potholes, or root damage.
- Surfaces that cannot properly drain water.
2. Asphalt Milling
3. Base Repair
4. Installing New Asphalt Overlay
A small crack or pothole in your parking lot or road may not look like a severe issue but could become one in a few months or years. When these issues are not caught early enough, asphalt replacement will be required. The most common reasons for asphalt replacement include
- If the damage is too extensive
- If water cannot drain appropriately
- To prevent liability
- If repairing would be a short term solution
- If it makes more financial sense to replace rather than restore
Before replacing your asphalt surface, it will need a proper examination. An expert will extensively assess your current installation to provide the best solution to your needs.
