For asphalt installation, it's important to properly research and plan before beginning the process. Carefully surveying the location is an important step. Taking the appropriate precautions ensures a sound foundation and this helps to guarantee that your new installation will last a very long time.
Inspecting the current foundation is the first step of beginning a new paving project. At the base of the structure there should be no rubble, plant matter, etc. If there is any doubt about the stability of the foundation, it may need to be graded or excavated in order to develop a smooth, stable surface for the asphalt to be poured onto. After the asphalt has been applied and set, a layer of sealcoat is added on top. A sealcoat helps to extend the life, durability, and appearance of asphalt.
