We all need protection from the sun – and so does your asphalt. From day one of your asphalt’s life, UV rays from the sun and oxygen from the air combine to break apart the chemical bonds that give pavements their strength. Sealcoat will slow this deterioration process, protecting the integrity and appearance of your pavement. For those older pavements that need a little extra TLC, Sealcoat will provide the new wearing surface your asphalt needs for years to come. Sealcoat should be applied in 2 coats, first coat squeegee, second coat spray application. By using this application process, you are pressing the material down into the voids of the aggregate giving it that smooth finish instead of mimicking that shape of the existing rough asphalt pattern.
Natural ground movement and thermal expansion/contraction can cause various forms of pavement cracking. If left untreated, pavement cracks will widen, allowing water to channel and damage the pavement base. A compromised base will quickly lead to fissures, gaps and pavement deterioration such as voids, potholes, raveling and more. But sealing new cracks as part of a regular maintenance program can drastically slow pavement deterioration and greatly extend the service life of your pavement.
When a business, State or local government restripes parking spaces in a parking facility,
it must provide accessible parking spaces as required by the ADA (Americans With
Disabilities Act) Standards for Accessible Design.
The striping application is done by using approved paints or thermoplastic striping materials. Re-striping should occur on your parking lot every two years, or when the remaining coating has been visibly reduced to 75% of its original appearance.
Asphalt patching is one of the most cost-effective way’s to protect your asphalt surface and foundation. By repairing potholes, you get an instant improvement in looks and safety while protecting against further damage and erosion to your pavement.
(cold planning, asphalt milling, or profiling) is the process of removing at least part of the surface of a paved area such as a road, bridge or parking lot. Milling removes just enough thickness to level and smooth the surface to a full depth removal. There are a number of different reasons for milling a paved area instead of simply repaving over the existing surface.
Asphalt pavement refers to any paved road surfaced with asphalt. Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) is a combination of approximately 95% stone, sand or gravel bound together by asphalt cement, a product of crude oil. Asphalt cement is heated aggregate combined and mixed with the aggregate at an HMA facility.
We perform many types of concrete work such as curb and gutter, water way, sidewalk, ramps, stairs ect. By constantly keeping up on concrete repairs, you limit your risk of injuries and damages caused by the shifting or breakdown of older concrete.
Slurry seal is a cold mix paving system that can remedy a broad range of problems on
streets, airfields, parking lots and driveways. Think of Slurry Seal as an Industrial Grade
Asphalt Surfacing for asphalt that is very course and requires more depth than sealcoat.
The principal materials used to create slurry are aggregate, asphalt emulsion and fillers
which are mixed together according to a laboratory’s mix design formula. Water is also
added for workability.
