Paving a parking lot involves several critical steps for achieving a high-quality and long-lasting result. Here are some ways that Uniform Paving can help your parking lots last as long as possible:
Site preparation: The first step in paving a parking lot is site preparation, which involves removing any existing pavement or debris from the site. This is crucial to ensure the new pavement has a stable base.
Grading: The next step is to grade the site, which involves leveling and compacting the soil to create a smooth and stable surface. This is important to prevent drainage issues and ensure the pavement is level and even.
Base installation: Once the site is graded, a base layer of crushed stone or gravel is installed. This layer provides a stable pavement base and helps ensure proper drainage.
Asphalt installation: The asphalt is then installed on top of the base layer. This involves heating the asphalt and then spreading it over the parking lot’s surface. The asphalt is then compacted to ensure a smooth and even surface.
Finishing touches: Once the asphalt has been installed, any necessary finishing touches are made, such as striping the parking lot, installing curbs or barriers, and adding any necessary signage.
Maintenance: Finally, ongoing maintenance is required to keep the parking lot in good condition. This may include regular sealing and crack filling to prevent damage and extend the life of the pavement.
