Are you building a new strip mall, office complex, or church?  Whatever your project consists of, we will pave durable, long lasting parking lots for your commercial needs.  We will work with New Construction Parking Lot Installyou or your engineers on making sure functionality of all aspects of your parking lot perform properly.  We will closely examine base requirements, types of asphalt, thicknesses of asphalt, how many layers of asphalt, and the (parking diagrams to ensure expectations are met.  We offer plenty of options when constructing commercial parking lots.  If starting from dirt, we recommend using our Perma-Base  system in order to ensure the best performance from your pavement.  Perma-Base allows heavy traffic on the rock parking lot without damaging it.  It also prevents yielding due to its many stabilizing qualities.  Cracks and expansion joints are eliminated or reduced.  Perma-Base will also prevent underground water from percolating through to the surface.   A minimum of 8 inches of compacted rock is used by our methods.  More can be added if desired.  The base rock is thoroughly compacted before paving.  The last step before paving your parking lot is drawing out the patterns in which we will be paving and checking the base rock to make sure enough slope is present for water to drain off the surface.  We will also proof roll with a 10 ton roller to make sure paving conditions are adequate.  Next we install our commercial grade hot asphalt with a self propelled paver.  The new asphalt is compacted and allowed time to set up before opening to vehicles.  There are many more details involved in paving asphalt parking lots, so feel free to ask us about questions you may have.

Here are some advantages to constructing a new asphalt parking lot.

  • When constructed with Perma-Base you are virtually eliminating cracks and base failures.  Your load rating is also increased substantially.
  • Our minimum thickness is 2.5" compacted, although 3" is mostly recommended; which will give you a superior surface.  More thickness or additional layers can be added if desired.
  • Materials are typically more affordable than other types of surfaces.
  • Asphalt surfaces can be repaired easily if damaged.  We can achieve seamless repairs through our infrared process.
  • We can handle all aspects of paving your parking lot.  We will include finishing touches such as stripes , a.d.a. compliant surfaces, signage, and parking blocks.

Asphalt Overlay on a Parking LotResurfacing a parking lot can be done quickly and inexpensively.  First we will consult with you on the types of traffic you are facing and how much stress they put on your parking lot.  From there we will determine the proper thickness of asphalt we need to install in order to guarantee you a long lasting surface.  The work begins by thoroughly cleaning the surface with mechanized sweepers driven by tractors or bobcats.  Next we will clean the surface and install optional crack barrier Petro-Tac if you have elected to do so.  This will prevent major cracks from reflecting through the new surface.  This can save you a lot of money on future maintenance.  Any low or deteriorated areas will be shored up with hot asphalt prior to installing the new pavement.  Next we will mark out the patterns we are to pave in so that we are sure to pave in a consistent manner.  Before we can pave we will use a pressurized distributor to spray the existing surface with a heated asphalt emulsion.  This acts as a primer that will bond the two surfaces together.   *(NOTE, We never "glue" our new surface to adjoining surfaces such as a street or intersection.  Instead we will saw-cut or use a planer to be sure the new layer of asphalt is thick and sits flush with adjoining pavements.  If this is not done properly the new surface can be damaged by snow plows or will eventually erode away since the layer of asphalt is too thin to retain strength.)  Next we install our commercial grade hot asphalt with a self propelled paver equipped with vibratory screed.  The new asphalt is compacted by 3 sizes of vibratory rollers.  Time is allowed for the surface to set up before opening to vehicles.  There are many more details involved in paving your parking lot so feel free to ask us about questions you may have.

Here are some advantages to resurfacing / overlaying your old asphalt lot with a new layer of asphalt.

  • Resurfacing can be done quickly with little preparation depending on the current condition.  Typically we can install 1,000 tons of asphalt per day.
  • Major cracks can be reduced or eliminated in a controlled fashion because we know where the expansion is taking place that causes cracks.  We do this by installing a membrane that allows expansion to take place below the surface without transmitting a new crack through the surface.  If the crack barrier is not used the old cracks will likely come through the new surface. - This phenomenon is called reflective cracking.
  • We can handle all aspects of paving your parking lot.  We will include finishing touches such as stripes , a.d.a. compliant surfaces, signage, and parking blocks.
  • Materials are typically more affordable than other types of surfaces.
  • Asphalt surfaces can be repaired easily if damaged.  We can achieve seamless repairs through our infrared process.

In many cases resurfacing cannot be done because of drainage constraints.  If there is not enough slope available to install an additional surface, the lot will have to be removed and replaced.

Asphalt Roto-MillNeed a new asphalt road or parking lot, but don't have any more tolerance left to add another layer of asphalt?  Is your surface height restricted by sidewalks, curbs, gutters, adjacent pavements, or other transition points?  We have the solution.  We can remove enough of your existing asphalt to install a brand new layer.  This is achieved by a Roto-mill or planer.  This high-speed device is capable of cutting 4" deep 4' wide in a single pass.  We can grind enough asphalt to fill the average dump truck within 8-10 minutes.  This process allows you to work within a budget.  Instead of removing all layers of a parking lot, now you can save time and money associated with labor by utilizing the milling process.  The process also allows us to grind and replace sections of a road or parking lot in order to reduce the interruption on traffic.  We can mill and pave sections of pavement in the same day.  A milled surface has a textured affect the helps bond new asphalt to the old pavement.

Here are some advantages to milling existing pavements prior to resurfacing.

  • The milling process is quick and leaves a level textured surface for the new pavement to bond to.  Bumps and high spots are removed with this method.
  • All of the asphalt that is ground up goes back to the asphalt plant to be recycled in new asphalt material.  You are actually contributing to the green effort by utilizing this method.
  • Disruption to business or traffic is reduced significantly because of how fast the process works in conjunction with paving.
  • You won't have to worry about bumps, trip hazards, drainage problems, or possibly installing asphalt too thin.
