Experienced Industrial Asphalt Repair And Paving Services

Commercial property owners, commercial contractors, and property management firms, rely on paving and repair services to keep asphalt level, strong, and free from pot holes and cracks. When asphalt crumbles or cracks the potential for further damage to parking lots, ramps, docks, and entrances can result in having to have the area completely redone. That can get expensive. Cracks and holes also increase the risk of injury, accidents, and liability lawsuits. An experienced company that specializes in Industrial Asphalt Repair can assess the situation, propose solutions, and make repairs with minimal business disruption.

It is important to find a company that provides clear communication at every step of the project. Having an understanding of the problem, the solution options, and the methods used will help customers make an informed decision based on the needs, responsibilities, and the budgets of the owner. The first step in any paving or repair project should be safety. Barricades, pylons, or yellow caution tape will need to be placed around the entire work area, and remain in place until the asphalt is set and stable enough for foot or vehicle traffic. The average time for asphalt pavement to cure is three days.

Different Industrial Asphalt Repair projects require different methods and materials. Repair to an overlay, for example, is simple and requires four steps. The area is first cleaned with appropriate power equipment. A tack coat is applied over the area, followed two inches of hot asphalt type “D”. The area is rolled with a steel wheel vibratory roller in order to compact the asphalt. A seal-coat is also simple. The area is cleaned and treated with a bonding agent for surface adhesion. Two coats of coal tar pitch emulsion are applied as a protective coating.

A basic repair for a cracked area or a hole requires a bit more work. The asphalt from the perimeter area is saw cut and removed to a depth of six inches. The area is then sub-grade compacted. The next step is to tack and install a base of hot asphalt type “B” for four inches. Two inches of type “D” asphalt is then used and compacted with the roller. Care is taken to ensure that the repaired area is flush with the adjacent gutter or surrounding area. Customers can go to Coltconcrete.com for full details of repairs and paving services offered.
