Wolf Paving Widens Coffee Road in New Berlin, WI - Part 1 of 5

Posted by Riley Stendel on Sep 27, 2013

Wolf Paving completed the 2.75-mile Coffee Road municipal paving project in New Berlin, Wisconsin.  There were four phases of the municipal project, pre-determined by the City of New Berlin. The project included widening and straightening the road, strengthening the base through the use of geo-textile fabric and Glas-Grid reinforcing pavement mesh, and applying the new asphalt pavement along the entire road. The project began in April 2013 and was completed in October 2013.

How Soil Stabilization or Rebasing Helps Your Parking Lot or Driveway

Posted by Riley Stendel on Apr 2, 2013

Here at Wolf Paving, we care about ensuring our work is the very best it can be and that it lasts as long as possible. To achieve the best results, we carefully consider every aspect of a paving project, literally from the ground up. What kind of soils exist at the site? If paving has been done before, what materials were used and are they re-usable in the current project? We ask these questions because we know an excellent base is required for an excellent result. A weak base could result in the pavement above it shifting, cracking, or even sinking. 

The Process Behind Asphalt Milling

Posted by Riley Stendel on Mar 12, 2013

One interesting part of the asphalt process that you might not be aware of happens before any asphalt is laid. It’s called asphalt milling.

What is asphalt milling?

Milling is the process of removing the top layer of asphalt to a specified and even depth without disturbing the underlying subbase. This allows new asphalt to be laid down without increasing the height of the road and saves you time if the subbase doesn't need to be fixed. Thanks to the milling process curbs, drainage and other existing structures remain undisturbed.
