Wondering whether you should use Asphalt, Chip Sealing, or a different type of paving or walkway service? Look at how we pave using asphalt and some of the benefits of asphalt laying.
How does the Asphalt Paving Process Work?
Asphalt paving takes a little longer than chip sealing, however, the results of the paving process are stunning, safe surfaces we can move easily over. Because the paving must be done on an entirely clear surface, the process starts from the bottom up. TCP Asphalt doesn’t skimp on the steps because we know you deserve the best result.
First, demolition is done on any existing asphalt, pavement, or chip-sealed area. We remove the debris from this job, and then we get started on grading the surface. Grading is the preparation of the road that allows it proper drainage and laying of the asphalt itself. Once we feel the road has been properly graded and sloped, we commence with the application of the sub-base. The sub-base is a layer of aggregate material which provides acts as a frost layer and prevents frost and other weather damage (such as frost heaves). The sub-base is arguably the most important part of the process. After a quick proof roll, which tests the strength of the sub-base and surface, the actual paving begins.
But actual paving does not mean laying down the layer of asphalt and calling it good. It entails application of a binding agent and then the asphalt itself. Finally, after making sure it joins smoothly with existing roads and walkways, we do a final roll to ensure your surface looks neat, tidy, and is structurally sound.
Why Choose Asphalt Over Other Resurfacing Options?
- Repairs to asphalt surfaces are affordable. It might seem like a hassle to repair your paved surfaces as the years take a toll on them, it is often more affordable to fix asphalt than any other paving solution.
- Obtains its looks for years. Concrete and other lightly-colored surfaces run the risk of holding onto stains from oil, fire, rubber, and other things it encounters because of the nature of the materials and because they are not black. Black asphalt hides stains and continues to look pleasant for most of its life.
- Durability. Asphalt, if appropriately laid and made with quality materials, can last up to 20 years. This turns what might seem like a significant investment into an investment that pays for itself for years. In cold weather climates, asphalt is often chosen for its durability, as concrete can crack in environments that are consistently cool.
