In simple terms, the features that define a quality paving job can be broken down into four categories:
#1 Smooth integration of existing pavement.
If you want to expand an existing parking lot, or integrate existing pavement into a refurbished, precision saw-cutting is an essential first step. The smooth transition form old pavement to new, is important for the consturction of any high-quality pavement project. Learn more about this process with these helpful case studies:
#2 A good gravel base.
Did you know? The most important part of your new asphalt parking lot is the sub-base. Without a proper gravel foundation, the parking lot will buckle under the weight of vehicle traffic. Installation of sub-base takes experience and percision. Take a look at these additional resources to learn more:
